Language Lessons from Antiquity
Language Lessons from Antiquity follows a similar format to Language Lessons from Australian History. In Level 3 of LL Antiquity your child will study ancient history from creation through to King Saul,(approximately to 1000BC), including the civilizations of Mesopotamia, Israel, Egypt and China. The Bible and The Story of the Ancient World by Christine Miller are the main texts along with other historical fiction. Grammar, writing, picture study, narration, copywork and research projects make up most of the learning. History is learned from the reading and lessons reinforce and utilise the history to teach the above skills. In Level 3, aimed at ages 11-13, your child will write 3 five paragraph essays, poetry, a creative composition, as well as an oral presentation. Writing tropes are also taught as part of the writing lessons.
