The weeks around Reformation Day are spent learning about the reformers and the history of that time. I just want so share my favorite resources with you for now and hopefully give you some ideas to use!
This year each child has chosen one part of the reformation to do a presentation on. Some are making part of the lapbook below and others are making PowerPoint presentations. We hope to get together with our homeschool group to have a Reformation afternoon and the children can teach us!
