2ND GRADE

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.

Reviews

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.

We LOVE Adventures!! I don't know who likes it more, the children or me!

D. C.

It is very thorough, yet gentle. It is an amazing introduction to American history for this age group.

It is hands down the absolute BEST year of homeschool I've ever had! It is wiggle friendly and completely manageable.

We have been using My Father's World since kindergarten and have enjoyed each year as much or more than the one before!
