One intention of mine in this journey with Dawson is to always incorporate some fun into what we are learning.
Our first unit of study will be on Ancient Egypt. We went to Philbrook Museum and learned about the mummification process last week. So, why not watch The Mummy? It's entertaining and informative (they even discuss and show a partial mummification process in the beginning scenes).
Dawson and I sat down this evening and watched The Mummy together. I love the movie. And, honestly, this was the first time I had paid attention to the educational side of it. Interesting and fun!
