Beautiful Feet Early American History Intermediate
April 4, 2012
Early American History Intermediate is authored by homeschooling mother, Rea Berg.
Early American History Intermediate is based on the teachings of British educator, Charlotte Mason as described in Susan Schaeffer Macaulay's book "For the Children's Sake."
This American history course is written for Grades 4-6. The course outline is a follows: Part 1 Discovery and Settlement: The Vikings, Marco Polo, Columbus,Jamestown, The Pilgrims of Plymouth; Part 2 The Colonial Era, Pre-Revolutionary Era; Part 3 The American Revolution; Part 4 The Louisiana Purchase; Part 5 The Civil War.
"Living books" such as "The Landing of the Pilgrims" by James Daugherty, "America's Paul Revere" by Ester Forbes, "Amos Fortune, Free Man" by Elizabet Yates and "Abe Lincoln Grows Up" by Carl Sandburg are the backbone of the curriculum. Notebooking is incorporated into each lesson, so at the end of the year your student will have a hand made book of what they have studied. Beautiful Feet Books publishes an "Early American History Intermediate Timeline" which I would highly recommend to accompany the student's notebooking experience.
Overall our family has been very pleased with Early American History Intermediate.
In the future we look forward to continuing our study of World and American history with Beautiful Feet Books.
