Journeys through the Ancient World is the much awaited continuation in the Trail Guide to Learning Series. Paths, the first three levels of this curriculum, establishes a firm foundation of our American heritage at the elementary level. Now, Journeys leads students through the fascinating study of World History at the Middle School Level.

In embarking on their Journeys through the Ancient World your students will be transported into four important early civilizations—Egypt, Israel, Greece, and Rome. The Bible is an essential part of this study, as both an historical and a literary text. And this is completely understandable, since it is one of very few eyewitness accounts of history unfolding at a time before written records were common.

These individual nine-week unit downloads include printable pdfs of the curriculum text, Student Notebook pages, reproducibles, and Astronomy Lab Book pages.

As always, our goal is to engage families through real, interesting books, and to continue building thinking skills by linking concepts and examining various worldviews and assumptions. Discussion is a primary focus, along with illustrating ideas with words and sketches, and recognizing the differences between facts and opinions. All in all, it’s a fascinating trip.
