Our family's journey through life as we deal with the every day messes along the way

Middle Ages History

The following is our curriculum we will use to study the Middle Ages. My goal was to take a solid historical base (Story of the World, Vol. 2), add in church history, some notebooking, and some great books. Here is the main curriculum:

MIDDLE AGES HISTORY

The following books are used in the curriculum:

The Story of the World:Vol.2 (necessary)

The 100 Most Important Events in Christian History (necessary)

Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World (white cover) (recommended)

Medieval World (World History (Usborne)) (recommended)

*History Scribe provides some excellent notebooking pages, but this is not an essential part.

*The extra reading books are listed below each week. Those books with “YC” in front of them are part of the Yesterday’s Classics eBook collection (though most can be found free online).

*There is a short list of read alouds at the end of the curriculum. Since we will be reading other picture and chapter books during each week I didn’t leave too many books as read alouds.

*An added bonus: FREE Middle Ages interactive notebooking sheets to go with the curriculum. Instead of having a full page to complete with each lesson, the student focuses on one key word. They color the word, define it in their own words, and then draw a picture to help them remember it. My kids were getting tired of doing a notebooking page every day so this should help with that:)

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Enjoy:)

    Thank you! This looks great. By any chance do you know if the Usborne Medieval book is part of this book? http://www.amazon.com/The-Usborne-Encyclopedia-World-History/dp/1409519074/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top . I noticed it has the same author. Do you include your younger kids in the Kingfisher readers? Thanks again!!

      It is my understand that the Medieval book is one of 4 books that makes up the Usborne World History book. I don’t know for sure because I don’t have it. As far as Kingfisher, I typically have the younger kids use Usborne instead since it is more on their level. Hope that helps:)
