Here is a list of what copywork I have so far for the Explorers/Renaissance time periods. There are also copywork sentences given in Time Traveler's as well, that we're using.  They are basically one sentence biographies for the various explorers.  Since I am trying to have dd write one sentence a day, I went looking for more copywork sentences.  Some of these I've borrowed from other people's lists - Trivium Academy comes to mind.

“It is a press, certainly, but a press from which shall flow in inexhaustible streams...Through it, God will spread His Word. A spring of truth shall flow from it: like a new star it shall scatter the darkness of ignorance, and cause a light heretofore unknown to shine amongst men. - Johann Gutenberg

Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art. - Leonardo Da Vinci

Queen Elizabeth I

  1. I enjoy reading all the quotes you've collected for your blog. The movie titles are great to have on hand, too.
