My son and I just completed History III lesson 12, Understanding Life- Biology, Darwin, Theophrastus, Linnaes, and Vavilov. What struck me during the time my son and I read and understood the lesson was, the number of children being educated these days that study subjects, that seem to exist by themselves and that have little relevance to each other. It is no wonder why history, math or science is boring to most children. What my son and I just experienced was a vocabulary, geography, history and science lesson with a lab, all rolled into one! We learned what biology is, but we learned it in terms of the first scientists, and so we now know something about the passion they had for their subjects. Imagine being a scientist and guarding a seed vault from starving people in St Petersberg during a 900 day siege during WWII or as the Russian's call it, the great patriotic war. That is history and science coming alive! My son concluded his lesson by going outdoors, into the world to catalog and record the life he found around the house. He didn't leave anything out.
