SOTW Chapter 1: The Earliest People

**We are actually getting ready to start chapter five next week (after spending a little extra time on Ancient Egypt)--these projects and pictures are a couple of months old.**

Chapter one describes nomadic life and how later nomads began to farm in the Fertile Crescent.  Connor was fascinated by the (fictional) story of a nomadic girl and her family.  The story approach definitely works well with him.

This chapter's hands-on project was creating our own cave paintings:

He did really well with painting a black outline and then filling it in with typical cave painting colors (reds and browns, mostly).

Brennan was thrilled to be able to participate this time around!
