The Notgrass From Adam to Us curriculum is a one-year world history and literature curriculum for students in grades 5-8.
From Adam to Us includes two primary textbooks (one for each semester; each includes 75 lessons). The daily lessons are written in a narrative style and richly illustrated with color photographs and maps. Volume 1: Creation to Cathedrals will introduce students to ancient civilizations, the Great Empires, the early Church, and the Middle Ages. Volume 2: Castles to Computers covers the early Renaissance, Age of Revolutions, Victorian Era, the 20th Century and up through modern communications. Each unit includes five lessons that look at biographies, landmarks, daily life, "God's Wonders" (natural resources), and "Our World" stories (major events). At the end of each lesson, an assignments section lists exercises, assignments to do using the other From Adam to Us resources, and literature readings (literature not included).
The Timeline Book covers the entire curriculum from Creation to the 21st century. Linked to the textbook assignments, students find the box that has the matching lesson number and copy the assigned statement onto the lines. Illustrations, dates, and famous people are also listed. Pages may be kept in-book or removed.
The Map Book includes lesson-linked map work that includes a map and instructions telling students what to identify, color, or draw.
Our Creative World features primary documents that accompany the curriculum, including stories, poems, documents, and pictures of art, artifacts, and architecture. Entries include a short contextual introduction.
The Answer Key includes unit-by-unit answers to the Thinking Biblically and Vocabulary assignments given in the textbook, as well as answers for the Lesson Review book, Student Workbook, and Timeline Book. A vocabulary word list and a short summary of each literature books is also included.

Dilettante Mommy5 Stars Out Of 5The Whole EnchiladaJuly 20, 2017Dilettante MommyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This curriculum covers so many bases, and does it well. Biblical history takes its natural place, alongside other developments in human civilization. The emphasis is broad: not to narrowly focused on Western civilization. And it's lavishly illustrated with gorgeous photos.
Subjects include art and literature, along with the traditional names and dates. This is everything I could wish for in a history program.
Sakitama5 Stars Out Of 5Great History CurriculumDecember 22, 2016SakitamaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4We are first year homeschoolers with 1 student, so our experience is limited. That said, we have been using Notgrass From Adam to Us for about 3-4 months and we are loving it as a history curriculum. We have even started giving it to my son as an independent study. I love how it weaves Bible and Church History in with the secular history of the world. It doesn't hide from touching on what other people in other cultures believed, being respectful of even Islam while reinforcing that Jesus is the only way to heaven. As a History curriculum, it exceeds my expectations.
The curriculum does claim to be a literature curriculum too, but I do not feel it is complete as it is given (book list and 5 questions for each book in the Lesson Review or Student Workbook). Perhaps it is mostly because of my child's learning challenges, but I feel that he needs additional supplementation. That said, he has LOVED reading the selections so far. I don't think he honestly read a chapter book or much more than 1 or 2 paragraphs in Public School on his own.
We LOVE the Map Book, but the timeline doesn't get used as much because of my son's significant dysgraphia.
Finally, I can give nothing but the highest of praise and appreciation for Notgrass customer service. They have been very helpful in helping me accommodate my son's needs.
mom5 Stars Out Of 5Love it!November 11, 2016momQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My 5th grade son and I both enjoy this immensely! I am learning so much as well. I will definitely use this history curr. from now on. The workbooks are fun, the pictures are great, the timeline is nice to have on the wall, ...I just can't say enough good things about it.
Jamie5 Stars Out Of 5Love itOctober 28, 2016JamieQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We are really enjoying the From Adam to Us curriculum. Engages both my fifth and seventh graders. I did end up buying the workbooks and my kids like both of them (Student Workbook and Lesson Review). I think one or the other is all that is needed though. The text is interesting with beautiful pictures relating to the current lesson subject. My kids like how it all ties in to the Bible. Neither is ever bored and both enjoy the entire lesson, from reading the lesson to completing the assignments. This was definitely the perfect choice for us and exceeded our expectations.
