If you choose to do American history first..


Recommended Posts

Well, I am not doing US history first, but thought an alternate history plan might help. (at leat it will bump you up). I basically have 2 5-year cycles. As far as keeping the kids together, that depends on what curriculum you choose. My younger one will start with Sea & Sky (WP has a young learner guide) and stay on the same time period as big sis.


1st- geography

2nd- Ancients (with WP HIH which uses SOTW ancients)

3rd- Middle Ages (with WP HIH which uses SOTW Middle Ages)

4th- US History with WP HIH which uses SOTW early Modern

5th- US History with WP HIH which uses SOTW modern

6th- WP Sea & Sky

7th- Ancients

8th- Middle Ages

9th- Royals and Revolution

10th- Modern History

11-12 US history and government
