The Good and the Beautiful History Curriculum
The curriculum is designed for the family to use together, covering grades 1 through GBHC draws its historical material from more than 40 history books that were written during the late s and early s. While older source material has been used, it has been rewritten somewhat for modern audiences and combined with additional, newly-written material. The first unit in Year 1 begins with biblical history and ancient Egyptian history. The second unit jumps up to the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
One of the most exciting things about being a homeschool mom is choosing homeschool curriculum. When I first started teaching, I was sort of just taking a stab at curriculum and choosing things that I thought were wonderful resources, and they certainly were.

After a busy summer settling into our new property, chopping wood, planning gardens, and exploring our new 5 acres, we are now almost two months into our school year! We have a 9 year old, a 7 year old, a 6 year old, and an almost 5 year old.

I spent hours reading reviews, exploring the freebies, and learning about the mission of this company. I tear up just writing this post! We ordered the levels we needed and waited in anticipation for them to arrive! I am not one to skimp on academics so I also want a curriculum that covers all the bases.
