Study Biblical and ancient history together as a family!
This book of lesson plans walks your family through the accounts of Joshua to the end of the Old Testament events, including a study of Ancient Greece and the geography of the Middle East. It details Scripture passages, living books, Book of Centuries entries, narration ideas, geography ideas, additional assignments for older students, and optional hands-on activities to help you save time and foster learning for all your students, grades 1–12.
Please Note: This edition uses the Oxford First Ancient History book in some of its lessons for grades 7–9. That book has gone out of print. We have available a revised second edition of lesson plans for those who cannot get or do not want to use the Oxford book. The new edition incorporates the recommended substitute books, uses a different spine, features new geography lessons, and includes other suggestions from our readers. We will continue to make this older first edition available as an electronic download, so you will be able to use whichever set of lesson plans works best for your family.
If you would like to use this older edition of lesson plans but substitute two other books in place of the Oxford book, here are some suggestions for that possibility.
