Elementary History 3rd-6th
We will use Story of the World to study the The Middle Ages (400 – 1600). Picking up right after Story of the World Volume 1, we will dig deep into history from the fall of Rome to the Renaissance. We will combine fun activities as we read through the wonderful storytelling of Susan Wise Bauer. Students will need a copy of the Story of the World Volume 2 (2nd edition) textbook and student workbook. Although not required, the cd of the textbooks is also a wonderful way to experience this curriculum.
Middle School American History
This course is in its early development as we see what the student needs are for next year. We have looked at a few curriculum, some literature based, and would need to decide to focus on early or modern American History. Please let us know if this is a class your family would like to see developed. We welcome your input!

Government & Economics
We use Declaration Statesmanship (Ferrier & Seeley), Economics: Work & Prosperity by A Beka, Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt, and Whatever Happened to Penny Candy.
The first half of the course is spent studying American Government. Declaration Statesmanship looks at the formation and evolution of the American Government through the ‘Declaration Principles’. The Declaration Statesmanship course includes quizzes, tests, and answers keys for the quizzes and tests. We also include essay topics to provide the student with writing practice.
The second half of the course is spent studying Economics. The texts provide a clear account of the principles of Economics, both practically and theoretically. The student also writes weekly essays on economics throughout the second half of the course.
Textbooks: Government – “Declaration Statemanship” set, available on Amazon or from Emmanuel Books. Economics – Economics: Work and Prosperity by Russel Kirk, Whatever Happened to Penny Candy? by Richard J. Maybury, and Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt.

World History, 4th edition, BJU press, recounts the story of mankind from creation to the present. Students examine ancient civilizations through the Greeks to the Roman Empire. Then they survey India, Asia, and Africa on their way to the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the Reformation, upon which modern history is founded. They are challenged to discover the forces, issues, people, and movements that have shaped our modern world. God’s providence and Bible integration are given prominence as the students are taught to view the world through a Christian lens.

Memoria Press – Geography III solidifies the mapping skills learned in Geography I and II (neither of which are prerequisites – we will introduce these mapping skills as well), and also requires students to label major landforms and topography. Students will study the climate, recent history, culture, and religion of every continent. This text has many illustrations of famous landmarks, architecture, and people from around the world, and the workbook requires students to practice mapwork weekly. In addition to labeling maps, students will learn to freehand-draw each continent using the Robinson Map Project. This is a thorough world geography course.
