YEARROUND

A new homeschool year is just coming up and many of us are looking to change or revisit their history curriculum, so I hope this round up of the most popular and proven homeschool history curriculum out there will be helpful as you plan!

homeschool history curriculum, history curriculum, homeschool, homeschooling, history

Up first is a list of curriculum that entails more than just history. These curricula teach history alongside worldview, literature, geography and some include art history. Personally have a penchant for this type of history curriculum because they tend to be comprehensive and organic. The students are shown how these disciplines fit well with each other and how inter-related they are. These curriculum tend to be classically oriented and therefore, follow the classical cycle of history.

Summary

Our intention in presenting Tapestry of Grace® and other educational products is to remain accurate and biblically oriented. Tapestry‘s Teacher’s Notes and Student Activity Page questions emphasize God’s sovereignty in history, frequently noting specific evidences of His work as we understand it. It is our belief that children need to be led in “connecting the dots” of the events of history with both Scripture and a sense of the loving, active presence of God in world events. It is our aim to strengthen in them a sense of both humility and destiny as they view the sweeping majesty of God acting in HIS story.

History is the centerpiece of Sonlight’s homeschool curriculum. We seek to give our homeschool students an overview of key events and people of the past, but, more importantly, we give them every opportunity to study the biographies of people who have made significant contributions to the development of human cultures in general and most especially to the advancement of God’s Kingdom. Moreover, we pay special attention to those whose character and achievements we would like to emulate.

Summary

This world history text provides a comprehensive overview of ancient history from Creation through the 1620s from a Christian perspective. Extensive vocabulary questions and suggested projects are listed throughout the text. This illustrated text contains numerous high-quality maps. Most history textbooks are written from a secular viewpoint, but this introductory text is different! Providing a comprehensive look at Western, African, and Asian civilizations from creation to 1620, it affirms the biblical view of creation (though it discusses evolution) and gives your kids insight into other cultures and religions from a Christian perspective. Includes vocabulary questions, exercises, maps, and black-and-white illustrations.
