Beautiful Feet History of the Horse

by Jimmie Lanley on April 12, 2009

We’re doing something totally different! A Beautiful Feet study — The History of the Horse. (We’ll go back to American history once we finish this. It’s time for a break.)

This curriculum is a winner for a young girl. Why? Two reasons.

1. It’s about horses. Every book is a horse book.

2. It includes drawing! Drawing assignments are integrated into the material. You read about a horse in a wonderful novel, you study the horse in a non-fiction book, and you draw the horse.  [I’ve learned a huge lesson here. I’m already planning for curriculum purchase for next spring when we are in USA. Note to self — buy drawing books that incorporate your topics of study and assign them.]

I find that the daily assignments are really sparse, so we’re working through it double speed, doing two lessons per day.

Another reason this curriculum is going over so well is that for the first time, I’m letting Sprite read the novels silently by herself. She loves going back to her room to do her homeschool.

Click to read my Review of Beautiful Feet History of the Horse Curriculum.  It’s really more than a review. It’s a description of the unit study, an outline of the books used, how we used it, extras we added in, and photos from Sprite’s notebook.I’ll keep adding to it as we go through. But if you want the short version — this curriculum is a winner! Love it!
