Your sixth grader will blaze the trail of exploration into the Western Hemisphere and study the characteristics and geographical features of Canada, the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America. He will be fascinated to see history as the connected story of people and nations and how they respond to God’s truth. He will love the hundreds of full-color pictures and many original print illustrations! The Grade 6 History Child Kit contains the texts and correlated assessments for the grade 6 history program—5 items total. Combine this kit with the Grade 6 History Parent Kit, and you can confidently teach your sixth grader about the history, beauty, and variety of the many countries of the “New World.”
· Biblical worldview—A perspective which explains history as His story and connects the past with the present causes history to “make sense” to your child.
· Geography—Geography will help your child to understand history even better because it tells us about the places where history has happened. The Geography Handbook in the back of the text is a treasure trove of information and interesting facts that your child will refer to throughout the course. The 6 quizzes in the Geography Quiz Bowl Book are great for competitions or just personal study.
· Learning aids—Comprehension Checks, Chapter Checks, timelines, and bold terms help your child learn and remember. Foundational documents such as the Preamble to the Constitution, the First Amendment, the Gettysburg Address, and more are included in the back of the text for your child to put to memory and appreciate for their historical importance.
· Emphasis on people—How did people live in Ancient Egypt? What was life like in Rome? The past comes alive as your child sees it through the lives of people.
