This course is offered on Thursdays.
This class will cover ancient history from Creation to the Resurrection.
Students will learn about famous biblical characters, ancient peoples, and well-known
men such as Aesop, Buddha, Pythagoras, Confucius, Emperor Asoka, Herodotus,
Caesar, Hannibal, and Herod.
The textbook for this class is written from a Christian, young-earth perspective, and teaches children to see God's hand throughout history!
Written in a conversational style, many lessons are presented in the form of mini-biographies, integrating fascinating stories with the events of the time.
Weekly pretests, lessons to read at home, taking notes with a study guide, and activities to follow up in class, such as geography, timelines, art projects, a memory challenge, and more will be part of this course.
We may take 1-2 field trips on non-class days, to supplement our study.
Participation will be optional.
