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


These homeschool history staples have been around for quite a few years now and remain popular as a flexible, "unit study"-like program that covers history chronologically and in-depth, using excellent supplemental resources. For most historical periods covered, there is a Famous Men book and a Greenleaf Guide. (For Old Testament and Ancient Egypt, readings are found in other sources, including the Bible and supplemental resources.) Famous Men books are reprinted from the original editions (1904) and include the original preface as well as a new preface. These volumes feature stories and black-and-white illustrations on the featured men. The content of Famous Men of Rome and Famous Men of Greece are very similar to the originals, while Famous Men of the Middle Ages includes new chapters by Rob Shearer.

The corresponding Greenleaf Guide holds reading assignments from Famous Men and the supplemental resources. vocabulary lists, pronunciation guides, comprehension questions for the Famous Men stories, a chronological overview of that period of history, a graphic timeline, key dates for the time period, suggested hands-on activities and more. Think of the guide as the lesson plans/teacher resources, and the Famous Men and study package books as the texts for each study. Emphasis is on people and hands-on activities as you study history chronologically in depth. Instead of breezing through all of world history in a year and getting only a smattering of information, use these guides and study packages to really learn about the time periods; with special emphasis on people and cultures. The studies are also Biblically-based and use Biblical standards to evaluate historical figures and events.

We have created complete and supplemental packages for each time period in the Greenleaf series. Items in the supplemental packages are specifically recommended in the Greenleaf Guides, so you will need to have the accompanying books to get the most out of each guide. Each study package has enough material to last a school year (or less if used daily. Please note that items are also available separately.
