    Are you looking for a simple way to teach history to your 4th-6th graders this year? I know I am overwhelmed every year as I constantly bounce around trying to find a curriculum that I love. Some years I think I've got it and then our homeschool evolves, my children's interests change and suddenly I am looking for something that will meet our ever-changing needs. This year it was all about simplifying. If you too are looking to simplify your homeschool then this new American History program published by Master Books may be just what you are looking for!

    The new Timelines of the Revolution series is a 2-part set, The Fight for Freedom, Biographies of the American Revolution and America's Struggle to Become a Nation, Timeline of the Revolution. This new series, written by Rick & Marilyn Boyer of CharacterConcepts.com, helps students from grades 4 - 6 understand how our nation came to be. Staunch patriots, Rick & Marilyn present American History from a Godly perspective and really help children understand the blessings of liberty and the importance of not just remembering, but treasuring, our heritage. These 2 books are all you need to set students on the path of patriotism and a love of American history!

    The text contains 34 chapters, one for each week of the school year. Each chapter is divided into 3 separate reading sections creating easy places to divide up the work through your week. As you can see in the Teacher Guide, the recommended schedule is a five day per week plan, but this program lends itself to flexibility and can be used as a 4 day plan as well. Each section includes a question/answer worksheet.

    What we love about America's Struggle to Become a Nation:

    -First of all the pictures are ah-mazing! The full color illustrations throughout the book are beautiful!

    -The Teachers Guide makes is super easy to figure out what each daily assignment is. Box-checkers that we are, we love a guide that lets us check something off. The teachers guide also allows for inputing and tracking grades if your homeschool requires that.

    -Lengthy quotes dotted throughout the book serve as source documents, which is something that is challenging to find in a homeschool curriculum for children this age.

    -Lessons are bite-sized allowing for great flexibility and holding your child's attention.

    -Quarterly and bonus quizzes are located in the back of the teacher guide for your convenience. This is a handy tool that can even be used orally to check for understanding.

    -One of our favorite parts - each chapter includes a couple of projects to complete. For example: memory work selections (like the pledge of allegiance), journal entries, designing posters, writing newspaper articles, building a fort, and research opportunities.

    Other thoughts about America's Struggle to Become a Nation:

    -The curriculum is designed for grades 4-6 but my 5th grade daughter did struggle to understand the meaty concepts without help so I believe that a parent or teacher will need to treat this book as a read-aloud for students who are not strong and motivated readers. This works great for us since we do many subjects as read-togethers still, but if you are looking for a curriculum your child can do completely independently this may not be a good fit.

    We really enjoyed this series! We received it free of charge in exchange for an honest review.
