Summer School: Ancient History

Vacation Bible School



We are blessed to live near a musuem
of Bible and ancient history.


Through interactive exhibits, like the one above,
students learn first-hand what life was like for the Israelites
and members of other ancient societies.


The boys attended a Vacation Bible School
at this center earlier in the summer.
They learned about ancient Egypt, Turkey, and Israel.
It was a perfect summer study
since we will study ancient history
in the up-coming school year.


They participated in an archaeological dig,
made crafts, listened to expert (and engaging) talks,
and made homemade bread.


Orville (above) watches as Mr. Oliver cooks his bread.
They ate it piping hot
covered in butter and honey.


The boys had a great time
and learned so much, but
according to them,
the highlight of the week was seeing...



Pedro the Rooster!
(and museum mascot)
Cock-a-doodle-doo!
