Product Description

Study history, geography, and Bible together as a family!

This year of lesson plans will help the world of Ancient Rome come alive for all your students, grades 1–12. The life of Christ and the events of the early church are studied side-by-side with ancient world history. The study of Rome will take you through many lands as you trace its rise and fall: Italy, Greece, Spain, Macedonia, more of Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Older students also complete a study of the book of Romans, which was written to believers in Ancient Rome.

The Charlotte Mason-style lesson plans

  • Make the ancient world come alive through living books and Bible readings.
  • Help your students listen attentively and recall what was read by narrating.
  • Let you teach the whole family together by sharing some books as family read-alouds, then challenging older students with additional reading and writing assignments from other books on the same topic.
  • Help all your students, grades 1–12, see how Bible events fit into history.
  • Connect geography to the people who lived there—both past and present.
  • Keep things simple by providing helpful reminders of upcoming resources, teaching tips, and Book of Centuries entries.

    I am really enjoying the detail provided in the curriculum while also allowing me to feel in control of teaching.
    I purchased the Life in Ancient Rome coloring books. I was wondering if there were any notes on how to correspond the illustrations to the lessons.

  2. Lisa Price

    This was our first year to use this curriculum, my daughter who is 12 loved it, the additional books that went along with it were fun and exciting.
    My question for Sonia is since we started in the middle, does it matter which one of these we do next? My idea is to do the one that comes after this one and just continue until we have gone through them all. Thanks for the great website and all that it includes.

    • Jordan Smith

      Glad you’ve enjoyed using Matthew through Acts & Ancient Rome! You have the progression exactly right: We recommend going on to the next time period, Middle Ages, Renaissance, Reformation & Epistles, to study history in order. Once you finish Modern Times, Epistles & Revelation, you can start from the beginning again with Genesis through Deuteronomy & Ancient Egypt.
