1850 to Modern Times Teacher's Manual 1850 to Modern Times is the final year of a chronological history-based study for students in 2nd - 8th grade. Enjoy learning U.S. and world history as you solve cryptography puzzles, bake Vietnamese Apricot Coconut Cake, recite the Gettysburg Address, and sing catchy states and capitals songs. Read about Hudson Taylor, a pioneer missionary to China, and Sergeant York, a humble mountain man and Christian who became a great World War I hero.

If your family has never used Exploring Countries and Cultures, we highly recommend it before continuing 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.)

1850 to Modern Times is a complete curriculum for Bible, history, and science. The Deluxe Package includes music and read-alouds. Your 2nd and 3rd graders will also need the 2nd–3rd Grade Supplement for 1850 to Modern Times.

This program uses The Story of the World, Volume 4, as well as the corresponding Activity Book. Because the content this year is more difficult, the activity book's review questions are needed to reinforce learning. It includes maps and activities as well as assignments for outlines or summaries for each chapter to help develop writing skills.

Teacher's Manual
  • Daily lesson plans are in an easy-to-use weekly chart format that lists each subject with the appropriate book titles and page numbers to complete each day and information on when and how to use Student Sheets. 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
  • Learn about basic Christian beliefs with stories from around the world that illustrate key Bible passages by using A Young Person's Guide to Knowing God by Patricia St. John.
  • Be inspired by the stories of faithful Christians from In God We Trust, Trial and Triumph, and Tales of Persia.
  • Scheduled, guided prayer for the United States (or your country of residence) and other countries around the world with varying beliefs and customs.
  • A six-week Bible study focusing on God's faithfulness to mankind and the call for all believers to be a blessing and a witness to others.
  • Sing the great hymns of our faith and learn their stories (coordinated with this year's history study) using Then Sings My Soul (optional).
History
  • Study world and U.S. history from 1850 to modern times with a number of informative books and a detailed timeline book (all fully scheduled in the Teacher's Manual).
  • Integrate history with composition and handwriting as you make a history notebook. Enjoy cooking delicious recipes from the past.
  • Learn about U.S. presidents and U.S geography with a brief trip through all 50 states, completing a two-year study that began in Exploration to 1850.
  • Library books provide enrichment for topics that you study. We provide an extensive list of recommended books for independent reading, but none are required.
  • Add history content for 2nd and 3rd graders with the 2nd–3rd Grade Supplement for 1850 to Modern Times (required for 2nd-3rd graders).
Science
  • Study chemistry and physics with many hands-on experiments, including Snap Circuits Jr. and the Fun with Magnets kit in the Deluxe Package.
  • 7th and 8th graders use Apologia science instead of the above (purchase separately).
Art and Music
  • Enjoy hands-on projects related to history, science, and Bible.
  • Focus on U.S. patriotic songs and composers such as Foster, Sousa, Armstrong, and Gershwin.
  • Sing the great hymns of our faith and learn their stories (coordinated with this year's history study) using Then Sings My Soul (purchase separately).
  • Continue to develop a variety of art skills with lessons from God and the History of Art (purchase separately).
Read-Alouds
  • Selected books are integrated with the study of history to inspire and develop godly character (in the Deluxe Package).
Math, Language Arts, and Foreign Language

Note for 2nd and 3rd Grade: The content of 1850 to Modern Times is difficult for 2nd and 3rd graders; many of the books are written at a higher comprehension level than in our other history programs. The history content is often troubling-describing wars and human cruelty-and not suitable for younger students. The author of The Story of the World does not recommend using Volume 4 with 3rd grade or younger, and we agree. However, 2nd and 3rd graders can still join you for Bible, science experiments, science readings (the easier sections), and president and state studies. (Your 2nd and 3rd graders will have an opportunity to repeat 1850 to Modern Times in 7th or 8th grade, when they will have the maturity needed to fully comprehend the complex information.)

Add history content for 2nd and 3rd graders with the 2nd–3rd Grade Supplement for 1850 to Modern Times. Fascinating literature books as well as two activity books help make history and U.S. geography come alive for younger students. You will find all of these books conveniently scheduled in your lesson plans. They are great books, and you won't want to miss any of them!

Suddenly, Corrie's ordered life was lost in the insanity of war. With bravery and compassion, her family and countless other Dutch citizens risked everything to extend God's hand to those innocents marked for certain execution in a world gone mad.

Corrie ten Boom's life of determination, faith, and forgiveness in the face of unimaginable brutality and hardship is a stunning testimony to the sustaining power of God.

Hudson survived his perilous maiden voyage to his beloved China. With his heart set in determined obedience to God, and trusting the provision of the One who had called, Hudson overcame persecution and almost overwhelming personal losses to bring to bring God's truth to the "ripe harvest fields" of China.

Today, Hudson Taylor's story continues to challenge and inspire believers young and old to carry the anchoring gospel message, regardless of personal trial or hardships, to those who are adrift and without hope.

When he became God's smuggler, Brother Andrew was already familiar with risk. As a boy, the intrepid Andrew Van Der Bijl joined the Dutch Resistance against the Nazi occupation. As a young man, he fought eagerly in the Dutch East Indies - until the horror of war turned the adventure seeker to a life of alcohol and desperation.

Redeemed by God, the Dutchman became a daring messenger of hope, smuggling Scripture through closed borders and equipping persecuted Christians behind the Iron Curtain. Today Brother Andrew and the ministry of Open Doors continue to shine the light of Christ in the world's darkest places.

This book details the early days of Alvin York, a backwoods Tennessean who lived in obscurity until he was drafted and trained to fight for Uncle Sam overseas during the Great War, World War I. Alvin York kept a war diary that was published in 1928 by Mr. Tom Skeyhill. This book is a unique reproduction of Sergeant York's war diary. Added to the events of the war diary are pictures and general information about World War I which allow the reader to experience perhaps for a moment, the feeling of what it was like to walk alongside Alvin York in the early 1900's.
