Adventures in U.S. History Package
Travel back in time and explore U.S. history from a Christian perspective with fascinating stories, hands-on activities, a timeline, and a student-created history notebook with this year-long second grade curriculum.
Study the names of Jesus, learning about His character while reading from a grade-level Bible. Science lessons correlate with the names of Jesus, and U.S. history spotlights the biblical character of America's forefathers.
Teacher's Manual includes details on using our Math and Language Arts recommendations, which are purchased separately.
Adventures in U.S. History
- Travel back in time and explore U.S. history and patriotic symbols from a Christian perspective
- Learn through fascinating stories, hands-on activities, a timeline, and a student-created history notebook.
- Curriculum also includes U.S. geography, Bible, science, art, music, and more.
- Easy-to-teach lesson plans guide you through each day.
- Also suitable for a 3rd grader who is the oldest or only child in the family and has never completed Adventures in U.S. History.
Does your 2nd grader have older siblings that you teach?
- 2nd or 3rd graders with older siblings in 4th - 8th grade should skip Adventures and go directly into the Family Learning Cycle, joining in their siblings' current program. This ensures that a parent is only teaching one program for all 2nd - 8th graders.
- The U.S. history in Adventures is covered again in Exploration to 1850 and 1850 to Modern Times in greater detail. 2nd or 3rd graders in these two curricula use a supplement that includes many books from Adventures.

We started Adventures last month. I have to say I LOVE it! I love that my two-year-old and four-year-old can join in for much of it. I love that it's all laid out for me and that it's real books and not workbooks.J. F.
