Four Years of Study: BiblioPlan is a four-year classical history curriculum for home schoolers, home school cooperatives and Christian schools, grades K — History, Church History, Geography and more, starting at Creation and continuing through modern times.
Our Family Guide offers plenty of resources for all levels, from the youngest kindergarteners to the most advanced high schoolers.
All students can study the same eras of history at the same time, covering the same topics in the same order.
But each student can study in his or her own way, using resources chosen especially for him or her. The flexibility of BP makes it especially helpful for large families, or for teachers who teach more than one grade level.
It allows students of different ages to work together, which provides several benefits: It saves parents and teachers the stress of keeping track of multiple eras at the same time. It saves the expense of buying multiple curricula.
It allows older students to help younger students with their work. It allows students of all ages to make memories together, by working on the same or similar crafts. Another benefit of BP is repetition. Students tend to forget stories they only hear once. The answer is to cycle around, so that they cover stories more than once.
Then they start over with Ancients again.
In twelve years, students can cover each era three times. They delve deeper into the subject matter each time, reading more primary sources and completing harder assignments.
Yet another benefit is the way BiblioPlan weaves Bible and Church History into the overall historical narrative. Year One covers Biblical history side-by-side with secular history, providing the ideal context for understanding both.
Year Two covers the early church, the medieval church and the Protestant Reformation. Year Four covers mainly missionary biographies. BP follows the classical model, which divides history into four eras.
Our survey divides the eras like this: Early Modern covers U. For each year, BP offers all these helpful products: The Family Guide is our resource guide. It identifies the best history and literature resources for your students to read, and then lets you choose which ones to assign.
It also offers writing assignments, memory work, craft ideas, video options and more. Remember the Days is our textbook for younger students, grades K These books teach history the way kids like to learn it: The Companion is our textbook for older students, grades 7 - It can also serve as an enrichment supplement for younger students.
Discussion times help students organize their thoughts and wrestle with their beliefs. Littles and Middles work with either Remember the Days or the Companion. Upper Middles and Advanced work with the Companion only, and include unit tests. Middles Grades and Advanced Grades The Advanced level includes unit tests.
Timelines are special books with two sections: Each week, students cut out their figures and paste them in the proper place on their flowcharts, illustrating where each figure fits into the narrative of history. Hands-On Notebooking is a fun set of notebooking projects that cover the U.
Craft Books are colorful collections of arts, crafts and activities to go along with your lessons. Coloring Books are collections of simple sketches from history for students to color.Maywood FFA Partners with Ag Valley Co-Op for Feed the Farmer.
