The history of mankind… in one week!

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to live as a Cowboy looking for gold, or in a Stone Age Tribe tracking a Mammoth?

Have you wondered about the moment DaVinci looked at Mona Lisa and thought, “She would look great in a painting”?

Well now Just Enough are giving your children that chance! Over the course of a week, we will take them on a journey through the history of mankind. We’ll take a look at our problems, our successes, and ask the great question…

Where are we going, based on where we have been?
