The Mystery of History, Volume 1, Lesson 46 (Jonah and Amos)

Delightful, 6, wanted to do the soap carving activity from Lesson 46 (Jonah and Amos) of the The Mystery of History Volume 1 (original edition).  Our soap was too hard for her to carve into a shape, so she carved shapes into the soap instead.  Also, she wanted to carve some creatures other than fish.  I guess what I’m trying to say is that Delightful took an idea from The Mystery of History and made her own art project out of it (Don’t worry — she still learned her history lesson without having to carve a fish!).  Here is what she made:

A rabbit named Linda:


And a bluejay flying with a cat face (top right), squirrel (right side of the bird), and heart (left side of the bird):


Feisty, 4, and Enigma, 2, also made their own carvings, but they decided to use their soap in the bathtub right away before I could get a picture of their masterpieces.
