The Notgrass History America the Beautifulcurriculum is a one-year American history, geography, and literature course designed for students in grades 5-8. It combines the flexibility and richness of a unit study with the simplicity of a textbook-based approach to history. Daily lessons guide your middle-school student chronologically through American history, with an emphasis on key events, people, and places.
The full series is 2 volumes; this item includes only Volume 1 (Volume 2 is sold-separately or as a set). It includes the course instructions and easy-to-follow daily directions that children are often able to follow independently. Each of the thirty units has five lessons.
This single text will cover the first semester. You can complete the curriculum (both volumes) in one year by doing one lesson per day for 150 days during the school year. Depending on how many activities you assign, most students will need 45-90 minutes to complete one lesson. While this course is designed for children in grades 5-8, younger children can listen to the lessons and participate in the family activities.
Lessons can be read by children independently or used as a read-aloud. Chapters features color and black-and-white historical photographs, illustrations, and artwork. At the end of each lesson four to six activities are provided from which parents can choose which they'd like to assign. One special family activity - i.e. an crafts and arts project, recipe, and other multi-age activities - is also assigned each week.
Activities vary from day to day and may include:
- Thinking Biblically
- Map work in Maps of America the Beautiful (sold-separately)
- Entries in Timeline of America the Beautiful (sold-separately)
- Reading assignments from We the People (sold-separately - includes excerpts from letters, speeches, poems, newspaper articles, and other primary sources)
- Reading assignments in the literature titles (sold-separately)
- Creative writing
- Assignments in the Student Workbook or Lesson Review (both sold-separately)
Softcover Text. Grades 5-8.
