Our home education journey
While I haven't read this book cover to cover yet, I have dipped in and out. The text is accessible but clearly suitable for a much older child (I plan to use this as an RE text in KS3), however we grab it from time to time to go alongside bible stories. The book is packed with beautiful art prints, photographs of the Holy Lands, maps, artefacts and Biblical quotes, that accompany the life of Jesus. It includes historical information about the world and politics at the time and gives a greater understanding of the world of the Gospels.
The book is split into sections about each continent. Always starting with a map of the continent to trace it then goes on to have different activities to learn more about the people, places and animals on the continent. It includes work on languages, land marks, rivers, mountains and wildlife.
