These Charlotte Mason-style lesson plans

  • Make history come alive through living books and Bible readings.
  • Help your students listen attentively and recall what was read by narrating.
  • Connect geography to the people who lived there—both past and present.
  • Challenge older students with interesting additional reading and writing assignments.
  • Keep things simple by providing helpful reminders of upcoming resources, teaching tips, and Book of Centuries entries.

Plus, you can reuse the lesson plans again and again. Because book suggestions are given for every grade level, you can take your children through the six-year cycle more than once, reading different living books at each pass.

Our six-book series will help you keep History, Geography, and Bible simple!
