  • Hipprocrates, Aristotle, Plato, Socrates

    For Hippocrates we did a review of anatomy since he is known as the father of medicine.

    We also read his mini bio, here.

    The boys really liked these Usborne books.

    I had trouble finding books for Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle so I used their mini bio’s I found online as well.

    After we read their bio I would read some quotes from them and then we would discuss what we thought they meant.

    We had been starting out our mornings reading Aesop’s Fables in the same way so the boys are pretty good at it now.

    The Fables were written in around the same time so we were reading them for our literature.

    Read the real thing.

    Not the washed down version that leaves everyone with happily every after.

    The Grasshopper dies because he did not plan for the winter, he does not spend a cold miserable winter learning his lesson so that he can plan for the next one…

     

    It is also very enlightening to learn about slaves in Ancient Greece.

    Many of these great thinkers had slaves to do everything for them, thus giving them plenty of time to develop ideas and theories.

    These are my boys favorite history books.

    I do not even have to tell them to read them.

    I just put them in our library book basket and they snatch them out.
