Story of the World Vol. 1 Ch. 15

The Phoenicians (1200-700 BCE)


The Phoenicians were a fascinating people that figured out how to build and how to be industrious.  This chapter covers purple dye, glass blowing, ship building and trading.

I love this idea to make a boat. It looks like so much fun. When I studied this chapter with my kids, they only got a boat made out of a orange juice carton.  This is so much better.
