Headers & Stretchers

Today we learned how the Israelites built their houses with mud bricks using a headers and stretchers pattern. "This pattern was made by placing one long brick next to two short bricks. On the next row above, the pattern was reversed. This pattern made the wall very strong."

Your ahead of me!!! We didn't read that book today. Instead we did the encyclopedia pages and a few chapters of The Odyssey.
