Arranged by quarters and weeks, each quarter begins with an "Around the World" summary of events to introduce the time period; lessons progress chronologically with each week having 3 lessons, a pretest, review, and exercise or quiz. The 108 lessons will take a year to complete if you follow a traditional 36 week school year.
Activities are broken down by age group and reinforce the material just learned through fun ideas that engage all learning styles; they're based upon the classical grammar/logic/rhetoric stages. Review exercises cover the timeline and map work exercises; quizzes are cumulative reviews that go over material from the very beginning of the course; the semester-long tests are similar (though longer), covering materials from 2 quarters (one major time period). Quarter-end worksheets help students synthesize what they've learned and keep everyone straight! Suggested Schedules for different age groups are included, as well as plenty of reproducibles. Line-listed answers included. 636 pages, activity pages reproducible, softcover, three-hole-punched and perforated pages. Grades 4-8, but adaptable for the family.

Ron SmorynskiHollywood, CAAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Good overview, Biblical, Creation, unashamedSeptember 3, 2013Ron SmorynskiHollywood, CAAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a good overview for kids of all ages. I think this is way better than what I have seen in public school printings. They are full of color and graphics and that liberal history that does everything it can to avoid or malign the Bible, God and Christ.
I've just started but have looked through, it has more suggestions on projects and work than I care for! But that's a good thing. And its format is easy enough that I can even make my own tests or use hers.
