Study history, geography, and Bible together as a family!
This year of lesson plans features the accounts of Adam to Moses, pairing it with learning about the oldest civilizations in the world—Sumer, Indus Valley, Britain, Babylon, China, and the Minoans, Hittites, Nubians, Assyrians, and Persians—and featuring a focus on Ancient Egypt, so students get a picture of the world in which the Bible events happened. Older students add more history and geography books, plus a fascinating study of the Law given at Mt. Sinai!
The Charlotte Mason-style lesson plans
- Make the ancient world come alive through living books and Bible readings.
- Help your students listen attentively and recall what was read by narrating.
- Let you teach the whole family together by sharing some books as family read-alouds, then challenging older students with additional reading and writing assignments from other books on the same topic.
- Help all your students, grades 1–12, see how Bible events fit into history.
- Connect geography to the people who lived there—both past and present.
- Keep things simple by providing helpful reminders of upcoming resources, teaching tips, and Book of Centuries entries.
High School Credit
For the completion of grades 7–9 or 10–12 assignments in this Genesis through Deuteronomy & Ancient Egypt study, we suggest that students should be awarded 1⁄2 credit for History/Geography and 1⁄2 credit for Bible.
