I've been homeschooling 15+ years with five different children I'm tired needless to say I have two more to go With that being saidI found this program excellent for my needs I have tried many different history programs and felt I had to do a lot of "extra" work to get in everything I felt was needed For example I used a classical program (Greeks Romans ect) and of course had to add American History (mostly books) to introduce these topics as well I had separate music and history and map work topics that should be covered as well Well as I said beforeI'm tired Pulling all of that from different sources is time consuming This porgram finallyfinally does it all for me and the price is reasonable I've only used 2nd grade so far but plan to continue It included a unit on the Greeks and Japan and China (Yes it does include Hinduism and Buddismbut the world is not made up of just Christians and I am comfortaable introducing and discussing the difference from Christianity) It covers Constitution War of 1812 The move West and Civil War Civil Rights and may other topics in historical order so students understand the timeline prefectly This program progesses each year so I assume that Jamestown Pilgrims and Revolutionary War was covered last year (I covered them last year with Beautiful Feet Books so we didn't have to much to review) Geography is woven carefully into the work to as to add to my child's knowledge without much effort I know that there have been studies that high school seniors (in public schools)can't answer basic geography questions like where is the Atlantic Ocean We've not only learned all the oceans continents but also many countries rivers major lakes and major cities Yes we learned the capitals of Canada USA India China Mexico and more The only info I needed to add was state info for Texas Remember the Alamo! The best part about it was that is was interesting and engaging The information was given in story form and I even enjoyed reading it My older kids even snuck the teachers guide to read the stories Lastly there are test and quizzes (although not a detailed as I like) and suggestions for projects In conclustion this has everything you need for a meticulous History and Geo program I heard such negative things about Core knowledge I was afraid to try this program But I have to say that it surprised me tremendously and has turned out to be one of my best buys

BEST ANSWER: The Core Knowledge series is currently out of print so we don't expect these books to "come back" (although we would love it if they did).
