Our History Plan 2013-2014

You all remember my history post early this year where I couldn't decide what to do.  I have finally figured it out and have even ordered the books.

I am now committed!!

Our Students for the 2013-2014 School Year

Spud - 2nd Grade
Lady - 1st Grade
A-man - 4-K
Big O - Preschool
Little Man - Baby

The Plan

We will be doing an overview of history.  We will study 5 different time periods, spending 5 weeks on each, and then having a flex week to finish up projects and lapbooks.  So 6 weeks total for each time period.

The 5 Time Periods

  1. Creation
  2. Ancients (Egypt/Greece/Rome)
  3. Middle Ages
  4. Renaissance and Reformation
  5. American
We are very picky what topics and books we want to introduce our kids to at the ages they are.  This is a way to get in some fun topics while leaving out what we don't want.  

Topics we DO NOT want to study now.
  • false gods
  • other religions
  • greek mythology
  • scary things

Topics we DO want to study now.
  • creation
  • pyramids
  • knights & castles
  • missionaries
  • inventors
I will be sharing my booklist along with my schedule for those who are interested in having an overview of history for the younger group and feel the same way about the topics listed above.  

I am getting very excited now that the decision has finally been made!  Looking forward to boxes arriving soon!!!

Have you had any "box" days at your house???
