Complete Middle School U.S. History Curriculum
Are you looking for a U.S. history curriculum for your middle school student that is complete and easy to use? America the Beautiful is a one-year course that is centered in God's Word and makes American history exciting for homeschooling students and parents.
Who Can Use It
Author Charlene Notgrass designed the curriculum for students to use successfully in 5th grade, 6th grade, 7th grade, or 8th grade. It combines the flexibility and richness of a literature-based unit study approach with the simplicity of a textbook-based approach.
Daily lessons guide your child chronologically through the history of the United States, highlighting key events, people, and places. With the lessons planned for you, you can enjoy learning history with your student, or your student can use the curriculum independently.
The America the Beautiful Curriculum Package includes everything you need for a successful study. The course is flexible, so you can choose the assignments and activities that work best for your child.
- Two beautiful hardbound books feature narrative lessons with hundreds of colorful photographs and historic illustrations.
- A book of primary source documents reveals what people were thinking and feeling in the past.
- Students complete assignments in a timeline book and map book as they go through the lessons.
- Each unit includes Bible study, vocabulary, and creative writing activities, plus a recipe, craft, game, or other hands-on project.
We suggest ten literature titles that coordinate with the lessons and enhance your student's understanding of each time period. We also offer optional review activities and tests.
