Rome to the Reformation follows Creation to the Greeks in our chronological history-based study for students in 2nd - 8th grade.

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.

Rome to the Reformation is a complete curriculum for Bible, history, and science. The Deluxe Package includes music, read-alouds, and several additional hands-on projects (playing chess and constructing a castle).

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 and information on when and how to use Student Sheets. Most activities are suitable for all ages; some additional reading is scheduled 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!
