Our curriculum choice for History is quite different from last year. This is because we have finished Australia...the Wide Brown Land for Me (which we loved & highly recommend). As this was quite an intensive study on Australian history, I thought I would attempt to see if I could combine the primary school students in with Zai's study of Ancient Civilisations studies ( learning outcomes in stage four). Since my proposed learning program was approved, I have to assume that is alright (the children have covered the majority of the learning outcomes for all three primary stages in their studies already). We have been doing many visits of historical sites while on this myriad of holidays which also counts towards their Australian history learning outcomes. Our curriculum choice for History in 2015 is Mystery of History Volume 1.
My only concern with MOH is that Zai has read the complete text at least three times ( he reads it like a book). This means he is very familiar with the topics studied. It can't be helped though, he loves studying history and absorbs every book on it that he can find ( & shares all the facts endlessly....patience Renata, patience). I have also purchased the worksheets to compliment the book. This is a download & it just makes it easier for me to click and print rather than try to photocopy out of the large text. I am also considering purchasing the art/craft component which would then be our art. I just have to decide... ( nothing like last minute). Maybe I will share what I decide next week when it is time for art.
We will continue to use A Child's Geography by Ann Voskamp for our primary school Geography. This is a lovely program & is essentially more a 'living book' type curriculum. We all curl up on the lounges as I read it to the children. It is lovely & we enjoy learning this way. We are still on Volume one, but will move to Volume two this year.
As for the high school Geography....I am actually after suggestions :) - another decision to make in the next week. I have been investigating a few options, but have not made a decision yet!
P.S. Sorry about the terrible quality of the photos...I am on holidays & my camera's battery needs charging. I had to use what was on my Instagram.
