Great Fire of London

Today's history lesson was the Great Fire of London in 1666. After our last history lesson we enacted a play but for today's lesson the kids chose to create some sort of an art project based on what they were hearing.

Even Elisabeth participated.

Madeleine made multiple pictures and all the kids are excited to share the exciting story with Joe when he gets home.

Cate - I love reading your history posts. We are using the same series and are in about the same place. My kids love it too. When we did the Great Fire, we actually made the replica and burned it in the fireplace. They got a big kick out of that. :)

I love that you burned your replica. What a great idea!
