We LOVE history .....

We have just finished learning about Mongolia and it's people. What an interesting section. Sonlight Core 5 Eastern Hemisphere included a wonderful book ..... Genghis Khan and the Mongol Horde.

We just could not keep to the daily readings as it was way too exciting .... so we sped ahead and finished the book with in a couple of days. We finished off the section with a viewing of the movie MONGOL .
I found the movie to be visually stunning, historically accurate and very entertaining. It is subtitled and quite violent (It carries an age restriction of 15), but my boys were fine with it, and are still talking about it two days later!
