From Adam to Us Curriculum Package
From Adam to Us by Ray and Charlene Notgrass is a one-year world history and literature course designed for students in grades five through eight. The daily lessons are written in a narrative style and richly illustrated with color photographs and maps. Primary sources, literature, and hands-on activities help the student connect with the history in a personal way.
All of the instructions for how to use the course are included in From Adam to Us Part 1 and Part 2 so you do not need a separate Teacher's Manual. The daily instructions are very easy to follow. Most children will be able to follow the instructions on their own. At the beginning of each weekly unit an introductory page gives an overview of the unit, a list of the lessons, and a list of what additional books the student will be using while studying that particular unit. Following the unit introduction are five daily lessons, one to be read each day. At the end of each lesson is a list of assignments. Students are not expected to complete all of these assignments, but you may choose which ones you wish to assign. The types of assignments vary from day to day. They include:
One special family activity is assigned each week. Projects include arts and crafts, recipes, and games. Each activity is assigned with its related lesson, but you may do it any day of the week. You will need to plan for extra time on the day you do the family activity.
The Curriculum Package includes:
Note: This curriculum is designed for daily use over one year, but may be used only 2-3 times per week to stretch it into a two-year program. (This is the opinion of The Learning House and not necessarily reflective of Notgrass History's suggestion.)

Recently, I had the great privilege of speaking with 3 families who are considering home education for their families. As I began to plan for that "kitchen meeting" I thought about some of the blessings of home schooling. The more I thought the longer the list became.
