Tapestry of Grace Year 1 Weeks 5 and 6

Spread the love

We have had a fairly busy 2 weeks with our Tapestry of Grace (TOG) studies.  The topic of Week 5 is the Tower of Babel and Mesopotamia.  Week 6 focuses on the stories of the Patriarchs.  We were assigned chapters 12-50 in Genesis in one week!  Thankfully, we have the whole Bible on CD which we listened to this week or I don’t think I would have any voice left!


Last week we had our 2nd co-op meeting where we finished up discussing Egypt.  The UG kids made pyramids out of sugar cubes.

My kids tend to be slow on doing projects so they weren’t able to finish them at co-op. They finished them last week at home.


They also painted their salt dough maps that they made at our first co-op meeting.

My older son has spent 2 weeks designing a Royal Game of Ur game board. It’s 99% finished, but I don’t have pictures to share of it yet. My daughter made a model ziggurat which we downloaded from here. She also started a weaving project.


Finally, yesterday I decided to try the no-bake cookie dough map idea.  My younger son made a map of Israel.

My daughter made a map to show Abraham’s journey from Ur to Canaan, to Egypt, and back to Canaan.

My older son made the same map as my daughter, but he added flags to identify the cities.

Everyone enjoyed themselves making and eating their maps!

  1. here are some of my mindmap bookmarks.


    Also from my blog, I have posted 2 entries on mind maps.

    A simple Mind map on Latin revision


    A Time-Map, our own hybrid of timeline and mindmap..


    Currently, we are doing mindmap poster of New Zealand.

    It is a mix of mindmap, lapbooking, notebooking laid out in poster board for narration/presentation when already completed. I guess, I have to blog more on this topic for more details.


  2. Oh man, you're making me jealous. I so miss all of our hands on projects. How are you liking TOG? There is a co-op starting around here, but it's for year one and we just did ancient history last year.

    Oh, how I miss our co-ops!

    It looks like you guys are having a lot of fun. I like the no-bake cookie maps. How do they taste?


  3. hello, I loved your map!!!

    i wanted to know how u made the rivers Of what ingredients

    And how you made the dough

    thank you!!!

    love from Brazil!!!

  4. I made the rivers out of white icing with food coloring added. I have a little kit for decorating cakes and squeezed it through that. The edible map is a peanut butter, powdered milk, and corn syrup if I remember correctly. It was really sticky. The next time I make edible maps I think I'll just use sugar cookie dough and bake it before adding the icing.

  5. Hello, again from Brazil!

    wanted to thank you for answering!

    I hope our progect comes out as good as yours did!


    thank you!!!
