Our holiday break is over and today is our first day back to our normal homeschool schedule.
The last day before our winter break, we finished reading The Last Safe House, a book about the underground railroad.
Today, we resumed our lessons by reading about 1/4 of the book The Day Fort Sumter Was Fired On, about the beginning of the Civil War.
We managed to fit a little bit of history into our winter break time, as well, by visiting the Museum of Florida History (free admission).
There are lots of hands-on activities for children of all ages at the museum. Blaze may have understood more of the history behind the exhibits, but the two year old we took with us had fun, too.
An electric car from 1911:
There were very few people at the museum, even though it was a Saturday, which allowed the children to move through the exhibits at their own pace and play around. This reminded me a bit of when Ula was little and liked the way her voice echoed through the halls full of animal exhibits at the Field Museum.
