Creation to the Greeks Teacher's Manual

Creation to the Greeks follows Exploring Countries and Cultures and begins a four-year chronological study of history. Travel back in time to Old Testament days and explore ancient history. Provide a firm foundation for your study of history as you see how the Biblical account fits in with other civilizations such as Egypt, Greece, and Babylon. Enjoy the many hands-on projects, timeline, and history notebook.

We highly recommend that your family complete Exploring Countries and Cultures, before beginning your chronological study of history. This foundational study of countries, cultures, geographic terms, and God's heart for all people makes all future study of history more understandable and retainable. (2nd graders entering the family cycle will join older siblings in the program they are studying.)

This easy-to-teach unit study includes a teacher's manual and all required books for Bible, history, and science. The Deluxe Package also includes art, music, and more read-alouds. This program is designed for use with 4th-8th graders and 2nd-3rd graders with older siblings in the program. (For classroom use, please contact us for ordering information.)

Teacher's Manual

  • Daily lesson plans are in an easy-to-use weekly chart format. Charts list each subject with page numbers of books to read and instructions for using Student Sheets. Many activities will be suitable for all ages; additional reading is sometimes suggested for older students. Many simple hands-on activities are included in the Teacher's Manual to reinforce the study of history. We do the lesson planning for you so that you have more time to enjoy teaching!

Bible/History

  • Study Old Testament stories in depth using your Bible combined with Journey through the Bible and Ancient World for helpful background information.
  • Participate in the Jewish feasts celebrated in Old Testament times and learn how they point to Jesus, the Messiah, using Celebrating Biblical Feasts.
  • Integrate the history of other civilizations, such as Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, and Greece, with Old Testament history. Learn how the 10 plagues were a judgment against Egypt's gods, and why Israel and Judah feared Assyria. All of history is viewed from a Christian perspective using the Bible, Streams of Civilization, and other resources.
  • Complete a timeline and create a history notebook, which includes a page for each major event or person, map work, and illustrations to color.
  • Enjoy playing the ancient Egyptian game of Senet, writing in cuneiform on clay tablets (cookies), and sampling Old Testament times food. Hands-on projects from Ancient Egypt and other sources reinforce learning.

Testimonials

This is our third year with My Father's World. I have never been disappointed. It keeps getting better and better. The study of history in context with the Bible is bringing the Old Testament to life for us.

Erin

What a wonderful, special year Creation to the Greeks has been in the life of our family.

Jenn

I love the organized lesson planning and the chronology of history. The 'flow' of learning is effortless.

Crista

I really like how God and the History of Art ties in with the history. It really helps to see how art progressed and changed over the various time periods.

Debbie

Upgrade

If you own an older edition of Creation to the Greeks, consider upgrading to the current edition. The core of the program has not changed, but several books have been revised or replaced.

  • In 2014, Genesis for Kids was replaced by Science in the Beginning. We highly recommend this new book since it provides excellent experiments along with wonderful pictures and information for 2nd-6th graders. Our recommended Book Basket library list was also updated.

  • In 2016, Streams of Civilization and Dinosaurs of Eden were revised with new color illustrations and minor text edits.

You may exchange your Creation to the Greeks Teacher's Manual for the current edition for $45. Please call our office at 573-202-2000 to request the upgrade exchange; we'll explain how to return your Teacher's Manual to our office.

If you prefer to use your older Teacher's Manual with Science in the Beginning, refer to this lesson schedule. It doesn't include weekly materials lists for science experiments.
