History Cycle




Like most literature-based curricula with a Christian worldview, we study history chronologically, beginning with Creation.

But most of them rotate through history every four years.  We initially tried that history cycle with our kids, too –but unfortunately, by the time the Ancient period rolled around again four years later – my kids didn’t remember a thing!

So we follow a different history rotation with our curriculum.  In fact, we repeat the history cycle each year.

After a year even your younger children will recall that the Middle Ages were the time of kings, knights and castles.  They will remember enough the next year to be able to connect new information to the old information…which is the way we learn.

Each year you may study different aspects of each historical period: One year, focus on the daily life or the prominent people. Another year, the battles or the technological and scientific achievements.  It’s your choice!

Year builds upon year, layer by layer.

You go deeper and deeper into each time period – you just do it over the years instead of studying one period at a time for years on end.  The lively pace of moving to fresh material more quickly keeps students engaged and helps them (and their teachers) better understand the flow of history.  How events and people in one part of the world affected another.  How the Black Death that started in Asia, for example, helped to pave the way for Europe’s renaissance.

NEXT, look at our Curriculum Options. Whether you prefer unstructured or more structured curriculum, we have you covered!

Homeschool Effectively and Enjoy it!

Homeschooling doesn’t have to be dry and boring.  If you are struggling keeping your kids (and yourself) engaged, try our customizable curriculum written from a biblical worldview.

Why do “public school” at home using textbooks when you can use literature-based homeschool curriculum written for the way your kids learn?

From our “open and go” Daily Lesson Plans to our unstructured Unit Programs to our High School courses,  now you can stick with one homeschool curricula from Kindergarten through High School.
