This is great for history. I Love how easy it is to use . Very simple .
This program is very easy to follow. We are using it for both our girls and they are 3 years apart. The only "bad" thing I would say is the material it is made out of is easy to ruin so be careful! We are loving this PAC program. It is designed to be student taught which is very helpful since I am a working homeschool mom. So far so good! Great contents.
We love this world history curriculum! We were looking for a non-religious option, and we were happy to find this one. Sure, they go over religion as it's a huge part of history, but it isn't religious based. I plan to use this for my younger daughter as well when she is ready for it.
Although this is not a Christian curriculum, I liked the content in this curriculum because it laid out the facts of history proving there is a God, the flood really did happen, Jesus is real, and so many other biblical truths. The facts speak for themselves. For example, civilization started (according to the curriculum at around 5000 BC but then restarted around 4000 BC, but no one knows why. I know why, Noah's flood. Although I liked this curriculum it was very dry for my son. It is packed with facts and is not what I would consider a "living book" (a book that makes history come alive). Therefore, I would not choose this if I had to do it over again, but for a child that is very fact based and likes to do workbooks to learn and retain information it might be a good choice. There are workbooks that go with each of the six chapters.
This provides the structure one daughter needed to finish world history and document her work. Very readable.
