About the Course
The first and second grade history/science class is a weekly, hour long class that covers both subjects.
For the science portion of class, we will loosely follow topics from the Answers in Genesis science curriculum used in 3rd – 6th grades. In class, we will learn science basics and vocabulary through experiments or games.
If you would like to purchase books, we will follow some topics in the following texts:Our Weather & Water Properties of Atoms & Molecules Heat & Energy The World of Plants
Any edition is fine and again, purchase of the books is optional. Links to educational resources for each subject will be provided.
For history, we will study countries and cultures. As we travel around the world, we will learn fun facts about various countries and locate those countries on the map. We will also learn about historic time periods including Ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome and the Middle Ages. No text is required. I’ll send out an optional reading list of library books.
I am incredibly excited to teach First and Second Grade Grammar/Writing, and History/Science this year! Students will enjoy the livelihood of these courses, and the information learned will provide solid foundations in future coursework. We will learn from practicing skills through a combination of games and workbooks, recitations and songs, and hands on activities/projects.
I obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication Studies from IU Southeast in 2002. I was an Admissions Counselor/Incoming Student Academic Advisor at IU Southeast for eight years, and then a Resource Specialist for the Institute for Learning and Teaching Excellence for another two years, before deciding to stay at home to homeschool. I live in Lanesville with my husband and two daughters, and I absolutely love the joy and academic freedom that homeschooling has brought to our family.
