They see pictures of artifacts and art such as frescoes and mosaics and learn about how the people lived. In between the history education, they are playing some really fun games.
We love history. We love puzzles and games. After all, isn’t the goal of home education to help our children learn HOW to think? …now I can say we have fallen in love with Dig-It! Games; particularly Roman Town.
This game is packed with information about the Roman Empire, which is seamlessly integrated into a fun and engaging game…the learning occurs in a very fluid and natural way
