World History-From Adam to Us!This course is a 30 week, two semester World History course designed for students in grades 6-8. 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 your student connect with the history in a personal way. From Adam to Us offers a unique approach for studying world history. While world history is the main topic, this course also provides extensive coverage of geography and world cultures. We will spend our class time delving deeper into your students weekly assignments. Every week there is a complete unit and the five lessons for each unit rotate through five themes: Our World Story, God’s Wonders, World Landmark, World Biography, and Daily Life. Our World Story highlights major historical events. God’s Wonders includes geography and looks at the features of the world that God created. World Landmark lessons explore famous places where man has demonstrated amazing creative abilities—places like the Egyptian pyramids, The Great Wall of China, and Machu Picchu. World Biography explores history through the life and times of famous historical people. Daily Life is a study of ideas, particular cultures, and civilizations through history where your student will learn about such things as “Learning in Alexandria, Egypt,” or “The Rule of the Shoguns in Japan,” or “The Moravians.” Finally, there is a language arts component to this curriculum (including 10 literary works) that we will not be covering in class but it can be added at home if desired for Language Arts credit) Required Text: The Notgrass From Adam to Us Curriculum Package plus the From Adam to Us Student Workbook: This includes.......The From Adam to Us Part 1 and Part 2 Textbooks, the Map Book, the Timeline Book, and the Student Workbook will be used in class.
