G#1 and Gilgamesh the Hero
Our oldest is a fifth grade student who is studying Logic Stage History along with his brother and sister, but to a different degree by reading materials and discussing questions that are aimed at his older capabilities. Gilgamesh the Hero is one of those pieces that he studied. Because we are covering the time before the Minoans and the Greeks, Gilgamesh was a wonderful story that he devoured. The questions from Laura at Classical House of Learning covered vocabulary and literature aspects of the story. He gladly completed a notebook page for this book and a sketch (best of all to me) and promised to compare this story aloud while reading Zeman's Gilgamesh the King Trilogy aloud with his siblings so they wouldn't miss out on the character's adventures.
