In the over 400+ pages you will find in the History Rocks Part 1 curriculum you will find that each unit provides different elements about men in the past and present of our history. Some of the learning elements that you find in this curriculum are:
Reading comprehension activities
Mapping skill activities
A fact memorization game
Two different comprehensive final (review) tests
Plus much more!
One of the best features of this curriculum is that you can work through it in any order that you chose. As the parent/teacher you can select the unit study that you would like to focus on with your child. I created this curriculum to be flexible so that it will fit into anyone’s teaching style and can work alongside any core Social Studies/History/Geography curriculum to help broaden and expand my children’s (and maybe yours too) historical knowledge over the course of a school year.
History Rocks Part 1 will cover men who have influenced history; whereas, my History Rocks Part 2 will focus on women who have influenced history. I created each individual unit study to focus on a single historical person to teach our children about in a fun and hands on way. My personal plan with this curriculum is to alternate between Part 1 and Part 2 for the next 2 years of school. I plan to include anywhere from 1-2 lessons a week (depending on the time of the year and our work load that week). I designed History Rocks with the intentions of utilizing both Part 1 and Part 2 and the intention of it taking 2 years to complete both programs.
Remember, when learning about history, the library will be your best resource in making and having a successful educational experience while having a fun time learning your facts. This curriculum also features beautiful graphics along with some hand drawn graphics done by myself. I hope that this curriculum helps to make your learning adventure a smidge more fun this school year!
