I'm having a hard time deciding what would be the best direction for history for our family. I have always been drawn to the 4 year history cycle- it has always just made the most sense to me/for our family. But after pouring over the SCM guides (and buying Genesis through Deuteronomy & Ancient Egypt) I just LOVE the SCM guides! What *I* don't love is the 6 year rotation, I think my main hang up is spending 3 years in ancient history, also the idea of taking 6 years to go over the history of the world and only being able to hit each time peroid 2xs throughtout their schooling.
I guess my question is has anyone used the first three module guides in one year? Pairing each module down and doing 1 per term. Or is there another program I should use that covers history/geograpy/bible for ancients in one year (to then move onto SCM guides for modules 3-6)?
oh my kids will be 7, 5 (and 2) in the fall. So we're looking at 1st and Kindy.
