Story of The World Vol 1 Ch 34

The Rise of Julius Caesar (100BCE)

Rome became one of the richest and strongest cities in ancient history making it an intriguing to study. Roman builders made paved roads making travel into the city easier.  Rome is also know for developing aqueducts to bring water into the cities.   Apartment buildings made it so more people could live within the city.  
Julius Caesar was born in Rome to an important family who claimed to be descendants of Romulus, the founder of Rome.  Julius Caesar went to school and learned the art of public speaking and learned to gain the trust of people by word.  Julius wanted to help govern Rome, so he threw parties for those that would vote in the hopes to win their votes.

September 17th is Constitution Day

On September 17, 1787 the US Constitution was signed at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia by 39 signers.  In 2004  a law was established that made Constitutional Day an official holiday. Even though it has been established as a holiday, we really don't celebrate it like any other holiday.  In fact, I didn't even realize it was an actual holiday until I consulted the Internet.

It's STEM Week!

It's STEM week! What do you do in your homeschool for STEM? I have kids that love all things engineering and could construct new inventions for hours.  We love Life of Fred for math.  It is simple yet fun.  It's especially nice that it is not kill and drill.  Each chapter only has a few math problems to go along with the story. 

 Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are all crucial to learning about and participating in the modern era. And there is so much FUN to be had while diving into these subjects. I've rounded up a great resource for each discipline - whether or not these are perfect for your little ones, there are wonderful resources out there to inspire young girls and boys. Tip: Educents' Labor Day Sale code is LASTCHANCE and gets 10% Off and Free Shipping to boot!

Story of The World - Confucius Vol 1. Ch. 33

Confucius- China's Wise Teacher (551-479bce)

 Confucius lived in ancient China during the Zhou Dynasty. He was a philosopher,  educator and political thinker. Confucius taught a moral code of honesty, respect, education, kindness and strong family connections.   

Confucius believed that strong families were the key to a stable economy and society. He taught of respect to not only living family, but to ancestors as well.  How different our society would be today if they lived by Confucius' teachings of building strong family relationships and showing respect to our elders and to our fellow citizens.  

 "To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right"
