Lap Book / Unit Study

We often get asked about material for further study to go along with the Peleg Chronicles. So, with that in mind we’ve begun putting together a Lap Book study type guide. It might be a while before the finished product is available so we’ve decided to periodically give a few pages away as a download for you to print up and use with your children. Click on the images below to get a larger version.                                                 Here is a list of some of the topics we’re looking at developing. Until then, maybe they will give you some ideas to pursue on your own: – Logic – Worldview – Battle tactics – Castles – The Word – Truth – Dragons – Giants – Fear – Trust – Gospel in Old Testament – Swords – Weapons/Armor – False Gods / Images – Heroes – Bad Guys – Music – Teaching – Boldness – Family / Orphans – Exhorting / Encouraging – Grace / Redemption.

They implored me never to attempt any career that had to do with building or spatial understanding – I would be a complete failure and thoroughly unsatisfied with life if I did. (Side note: while it is true that I am slow, and scratch my head a lot when it comes to spatial intensive projects, I find them very rewarding. I’ve built numerous house additions, barns, and two houses. I also get half my income from teaching Orientation and Mobility to blind people … I guess they would say that is like the blind leading the blind :). But I do enjoy it, and I have a lot of empathy for my students since I also struggle with the skills that they are trying to learn. And they don’t know that I don’t have any aptitude for what I’m teaching them.) The good news...
