Hi. I’m new to using SCM History. We will be doing the Visits to Africa with Genesis-Deuteronomy History.
Question: Should I get some of the upper level books (the grades 4-6 books – Golden Goblet, The Pharaohs) that are used for Visit To Africa or will we be fine to stick with only the books listed for Grades 1-3? I haven’t seen the Visits to Africa book yet, so I’m not sure what all is involved or how the books complement it.
Any other advice as we get started?
ETA: This question pertains to a 1st and 3rd grader. Thanks!sarah2106Participant
Visits to Africa has its own list of books, the only upper level book is “Letters From Egypt” which is not necessary with 1-3rd grader. The rest are family read alouds which we really enjoyed!
As for the SCM Ancient Egypt guide, I would not get the upper level books. The lower level are perfect for the age rage you have. I would not worry about adding the higher level books at this time.
Thank you. I didn’t realize it had it’s own list – so there must be some books that are in both lists that’s why it’s noted in the lesson plans. Thank you for the help.sarah2106Participant
There is no carry over between the two as far as books scheduled. The history guide schedules a day of geography which is a Visits To… lesson, but Visits To could be used as a stand alone if desired too, if you were doing a different history program or making up your own.KarenParticipant
I found books on my own to go with Visits to Africa. Mogo’s Flute by Hilda van Stockum would be perfect for your little ones. We also did Star of Light by Patricia St. John and King of the Wind.
