Building Clay Houses

Today for history we were studying early Indian civilizations and how they built their homes out of mud and clay baked and stacked. Rhiannon got to work with air drying (because baking was too time intensive for me) and rolled out the clay and cut it into bricks which she had to stack into a home. She made a rather small but detailed replica. She even made chairs with people in them and a little stable. It is air drying now.

Story of the World is such an engaging and fun history program I am thankful we are doing it. She enjoys it and the activities keep it interesting.
