A Literature Approach to Equine History
June 15, 2012
This summer for my own enrichment I decided to do "History of the Horse." History of the Horse is authored by home school graduate, Hilary Severson. History of the Horse is based on the teachings of British educator, Charlotte Mason as described in Susan Schaeffer Macaulay's book "For the Children's Sake." The study covers equine history using the texts "The Handbook of Horses" and "Album of Horses" alongside "How to Draw 50 Horses." "Living books" such as "Black Beauty, King of the Wind, Misty of Chincoteague and Black Stallion" are the backbone of the curriculum. Notebooking is incorporated into each lesson so at the end of the year your student will have a hand made book of what they have studied.
Overall I have been pleased with the scope/sequence of this study.
Our family looks forward to continuing our journey through history with Beautiful Feet Books.
