Adventures in U.S. History is a one-year program for 2nd or 3rd graders who are the oldest in the family. 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 those two programs use a supplement that includes many books from Adventures.

The Goals of Our Program Are:

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.
Additional helpful information and directions for using Student Sheets and hands-on activities are included. We do the lesson planning for you so that you have more time to enjoy teaching!


Bible:Learn how wonderful Jesus is as you study about the Bread of Life, the Lamb of God, the Good Shepherd, the Rock, and more. Includes hands-on activities and memory verses. Children enthusiastically read the Bible for themselves using the NIrV Discoverer's Bible for Young Readers. This Bible, based on the NIV and adapted for beginning readers, uses large 12-point type.


Science:Explore the fascinating world of science: stars, weather, plants, animals, atoms, energy, gravity, friction, sound, computers, and much more.
Enjoy beautiful full-color pictures and interesting information in the First Encyclopedia of Science.
Hands-on science activities are included in Science in the Kitchen and Science with Air.
Nature studies include Birds, Nests, and Eggs, and optional weekly nature walks.


U.S. History and Geography:Enjoy hands-on art projects related to history, geography, and Bible.
Learn patriotic songs.


Music and Art:Music appreciation lessons focus on Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker and more (in the Deluxe Package).
Develop a variety of art skills - drawing, using colored pencils and colored markers, and beginning painting - with I Can Do All Things (in the Deluxe Package).


Add Language Arts:Add Language Lessons for Today (2nd Grade) or Language Lessons for Today (3rd Grade) and Spelling by Sound and Structure (2nd grade) or Spelling Power (3rd grade), and Merriam-Webster's Elementary Dictionary (3rd Grade).


Add Foreign Language:Foreign language is optional but highly recommended.
