• A series of tales of ancient worlds

Tales of ancient worlds

There’s nothing better than exploring the ancient past. Our history is a never-ending fountain of incredible tales, brilliant adventures and fantastically glorious people. We believe that when we understand our past, we understand ourselves a little better too. It can help us appreciate the beautiful world that we live in.

But what is archaeology? Archaeology is the study of the physical things humans leave behind as they go through life. Our houses, our bones, our teeth, etc. As we go through life we leave these little bits behind, sprinkling clues all over the Earth, almost like a puzzle.

Archaeologists use the most advanced scientific tools available to give us insights into the lives of our ancestors. Radar that can scan the ground, lasers that can tell us the age of artefacts and drones that whizz above the desert – like something out of a sci-fi movie!

In this series we’re going to take a dive into how archaeologists have used these tools to put together the pieces of our jigsaw puzzle. We’re going to explore the entire earth, travelling back in time millions of years to our earliest ancestors. We will be recreating the lives of ancient kings and queens and even a grumpy merchant. We’ll explore ancient cities that sank beneath the waves or were swallowed by dense jungles and we’ll travel the oceans with intrepid explorers. Along the way, expect some funky gods, mind-blowing treasures and grisly warriors.

I love that there is an option of tutor support, and that it can be done at my own pace, the free 14 day trial gives a good idea of the course before signing up.

Janine Gouws

My daughter has gone from strength to strength since joining Think Digital Academy. She is now so used to taking notes after watching and reading through the material that she has taken comprehensive notes during her Zoom swimming sessions and is able to explain everything that she has learnt easily from her notes. This is a child who really battled in the conventional schooling system and has undergone a tremendous change since joining Think Digital Academy. Thank you to the Think Digital Team you truly are a spectacular team 😁

It was the best decision to enroll my grade 10 and 12 kids here. They can't get enough of the interesting lessons. The people are so pleasant and always help with kindness, no matter how many times you call to ask for help. You are the BEST!!!!

Love the platform, very user friendly.

Annie Andrews

My boys are very much enjoying this. And I love that you can do this anywhere. We take our ipads to the park, and we work from there. I love it!

Bob Howard

TDA is by far the best home schooling platform in South Africa. As a digital home school, I as a student can be anywhere, literally, and do my work. My marks have gone up, I no longer have to travel 2 hours a day and I am much more focused on school work.

Michelle Ferreira

The best. My kids love it!

Lorinda Everson

Great home school option - we had a great experience last year during Covid lockdown. Our matric daughter passed with a university exemption - we were very happy with the support she received while she was doing her online studies with them - thank you Think Digital!!!
