Humanity's Shelters

Humanity on Earth: Shelter, Clothing, Farming

Humanity's Shelters Following the study of structures found in the stories from the Bible such as the Ark, the Temple, and the Sukkot, we will enter into the study of Humanity's Dwellings. We will also build some simple structures of our own and also study the dwellings made by animals.

The examples show how the student could lay out pages of his main lesson book for the section of his book on Humanity's Shelters. Usually two to four sentences per day along with the illustration can be accomplished by most students in an hour ---give or take 20 minutes. Notice how the side by side pages are integrated artistically.
