If you're looking to infuse some history into your child's summer study plans, I have a great recommendation for you. History Odyssey by Pandia Press (the people with the great history timeline) has put together a very nice world history curriculum that brings together literature, history, and geography. The courses are divided into four periods: Ancients, Middle Ages, Early Modern, and Modern.
The best part is that you can download the initial lessons from each of the levels in a new try-before-you-buy feature that you really can't go wrong with.
Here's what you get in the trial PDF absolutely FREE:
- table of contents
- applicable worksheets
- applicable maps (for History Odyssey)
- applicable appendices
- first several lessons (enough of the course to keep you busy for several weeks)
I highly recommend you download the free trial PDFs and think about how you might use this to enrich your child's summer study plans. If you like it like I think you might, you'll be back for more.
