Category Description for Veritas History Programs:

Instead of isolating Bible and Christian history from what was happening in the rest of the world, the folks at Veritas aim to incorporate it. They offer four different history time periods (each aimed at a different grade level and designed to take one school year) which take students from creation to the present. The program originally had three parts: teacher's manual, history cards (an absolutely essential element of the curriculum) and a memory song on audio CD. The song is sung by a woman with a pleasant voice at varying tempos and is designed as a type of auditory time line.

The history cards are fantastic! They have many interesting facets (the more you study them, the more you learn). The cards from the various time periods are color coded and numbered - there are 32 cards in each pack. If the cards also relate to Bible history they have another color and another number. Each card has a picture (usually in full color) representing what it is about. For example, the card for Creation has a reproduction of the Creation of the sun and moon from the Sistine Chapel Ceiling by Michelangelo. Many of the other pictures on the other cards are famous paintings as well. Each card has a title and a Scripture reference (if appropriate). They also contain a summary of the event they represent and a list of resources. This information can only be found on the cards and is not duplicated in the Teacher Manual. On the Creation card, examples of the resources are: Child’s Story Bible, pages 3, 4 and Streams of Civ, Vol 1, pages 11-14. Reading whatever is set out on the cards provides the ‘text’.

The Teacher Manual is split into 32 weekly lessons. Each lesson has a worksheet, a project or two, and a test. An example of what you might find in the appendix is a literature unit, an Egyptian decor bulletin board pattern, an Egyptian Feast project, reproducible sheets, great games, and lyrics for the memory song. An enhanced CD-ROM is also available, which includes the memory song for that level, an electronic version of the Teacher Manual, and an instructional video. The enhanced CD will work on either Windows or Macintosh. Because the enhanced CD contains the complete Teacher’s Manual, we sell two kits; one which includes the Teacher Manual book, the card set, and the audio CD (Homeschool Kit), and one which includes only the enhanced CD and the cards (Homeschool Kit w/ CD). ~ Genevieve

My kids enjoyed the card sets earlier in the timeline, so we are continuing with this series. I use Story of the World and the Veritas cards simultaneously.

I bought these cards to use with my 8 year old son. They go along quite well with the book we're using for history this year, "A Child's First Book of American History" from Beautiful Feet.

This is our first year to use the Veritas History Cards Wow! The nice 5x8 size cards are sturdy cardstock with colored drawings and date of event on the front We purchased page protectors with ring-binder capacity in this size to keep them nice Our sixth grader has learned more from these cards about history in the last three months than ever before She's motivated to remember the information The numbered facts of each event are on the back of each card The test questions are worded so that the student must understand the material not merely memorize the card although memorizing has proven moderately easy and fun The CD of songs to learn the dates and events have stuck with them too We purchased all the history sets and our younger ones are learning from them as well Our college bound children have used these cards to review for taking Placement tests We've been homeschooling for 18 years so far and this has been one of the best purchases for our family
