Ancient History: Prophets, Kings, & Idols!

{This post may contain affiliate links of items that I personally have used and loved. Thank you for your support of this blog and our family by purchasing through our links.}

I haven’t updated our ancient history happenings in awhile, but we are still plugging along! We are just finishing up the portion in Bible history where the nation of Israel is divided, prophets have been sent to deliver messages from God and we see kings making many unwise decisions. I will have to tell you, I’ve had a hard time finding FUN activities and hands on activities for this portion of history. :)

Do you have any fun, hands-on activities to go along with this period in history? If so, please share in the comments below! 

So, I want so share a few of the things we have found in the hopes that this will help someone else out as well. :)

I’m going to include sort of an update on what we’ve covered (at least the highlights) since I last posted about our Ancient History Studies!

Prophets, Kings & Idols ~ Ancient History Ideas

Oftentimes, if I could not find a fun activity online, I just told the kids to build a scene with their legos!! So, here you can see the scene that they built when we were learning about Joshua and the battle of Jericho!

    I love reading your posts on your history lessons. I’m considering using WinterPromise next year so I was wondering if you could post what an actual lesson is like. Thanks!
