Product Description

Deep, broad, direct, relational and chronological...that's how award-winning TruthQuest History takes kids through history. Its commentary gives gradual spiritual depth to the chronological coverage of history, making for truly meaningful student immersion and learning. Meanwhile, the thorough reading-recommendations offer the most interesting materials for delving into the various people and events. Together, the children gain a "living" grasp of history and its lessons!
  • 1st Graders (6 to 7-year-olds)
  • 2nd Graders, (7 to 8-year-olds)
  • 3rd Graders (8 to 9-year-olds)
  • 4th Graders (9 to 10-year-olds)
  • 5th Graders (10 to 11-year-olds)
  • What fun! An incredibly rich smorgasbord of books has been written for children on the topic of American history! And youngsters are so anxious to meet Pocahontas and the Pilgrims, cowboys and Indians, George Washington and Daniel Boone!
  • Yet, children of this age seek the meaning of American history too. Usually, they are just presented with a few famous people and events, but TruthQuest History includes commentary which subtly presents the thread of God's hand in American history in a much deeper and broader exploration of our past.
  • Available as printed book, or PDF eBook (immediate download).

    Greetings, Nikki! As the author of TruthQuest History, perhaps I can be of service. We do realize that TQH is very different from most curricula in its structure, so it can definitely be hard to gauge at first. First, let me say that we always want families to find whatever learning tool He has had prepared for them, whether or not it is TQH. Secondly, the commentary which introduces each topic in TQH is intentionally brief because we are trying to subtly point young children (in the guide which you chose, I believe) to the most foundational worldview concepts which they can grasp at their early age. We don't want to "download" all at once, but rather hint at things for them to watch as they explore the people and events. Incrementally, they will be guided to rich discoveries of the basic spiritual truths. It is so exciting to watch! It often occurs several months into the study before the main lightbulb goes off, and they have internalized and synthesized the deepest truths being revealed in that TQH guide. With that in mind, the TQH commentary also does not dispense the history lesson directly, as a textbook might, but instead points families to many choices in the yummiest of youth literature. These recommendations are chosen to weave together the history, but with "living books" enjoyment. It is a different way of learning for many new families, and takes some time to become comfortable. Eventually, it will become very natural, engaging, and result-oriented, we trust. At least, thousands of families have felt so.

    One of our favorites

    TruthQuest History is our favorite curriculum choice for history. As a veteran home educator I tried various curriculum throughout the years but we always returned to the ease and enjoyment of reading living books (a living book is written by a person who has a passion for the subject and writes in story-like fashion). TruthQuest uses living books to teach kids how to think through His-story using a Biblical world view and not what to think. This learning process comes over time by reading the various living book titles.

    I will be honest that it can be a bit of work to locate titles, but many libraries offer Inter-library loan and the author does offer spine books that can be used in their place. There is also a priceless resource in the online yahoo group page that can be joined. There, many home educators help each other find books, utilize time, schedule, and much more.

    This curriculum nurtured a love for reading, writing, and history to the extent that one of my children has sought out rare ancient history books to add to her own library.

    Not what I thought

    This book is only a reference book filled with possible books to read. There are overviews for each chapter but thry are very short with little information. While I think it is a flexible and hands on way of learning from different sources they are hard to find. My local library so far has had only one book. I have had to use it as a guideline and find books similar. There are alot of books listed for every chapter
