Publisher Description:

Bede (pronounced "bead") is an adorable timeline resembling a ball of yarn who teaches children about history in fun workbooks. In Bede’s History of US 1st graders are introduced to American history. Topics include: Columbus Day, the Great Awakening, George Washington, Ben Franklin, Lewis and Clark, Abraham Lincoln, the Wild West, the history of flight, the history of inventions, famous American artists, and more. This is the perfect preparation for serious history study for when students are ready. Also included is an in-depth, state history lapbook project. This volume builds nicely on Bede's History of ME. Did we mention this is a home run?

Category Description for Bede's History:

Young children are naturally curious about the world around them-not only their immediate world but also the celebrations their families commemorate. This delightful series will quickly become a valued resource for teaching history to the younger children in your family.

Taking a gentle, hands-on approach, this new series from Veritas Press presents history through the eyes of Bede, a lovable timeline, who resembles a yarn ball. Weekly lessons are presented in a colorful two-page spread which contains textual information and activity directions. The activities vary and include drawing and coloring, timeline activities, crafting activities like making a boat and paper airplane, creating a lap book and many others.

In the first book of the series, Bede's History of Me, children are taught what a timeline is and how it works. The concepts of past and present are also expanded upon with concrete activities, which help younger ones grasp the meaning of the terms. Bede then guides children in creating a personal, family timeline. Other historical events covered are Thanksgiving, maritime history, history of toys, Christmas, Epiphany, history of houses (including geographical studies of my neighborhood, city, state and region), history of sports, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, church history and many others.

The second book, Bede's History of Us, builds upon the timeline activities in the first book and introduces the foundation of history found in creation. Other lessons include a state history Lapbook project, Columbus Day, Native Americans, Pocahontas, the Great Awakening, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, Lewis & Clark, the Civil War, inventions, art history, history of flight, and many others.

Each book is designed to take one year, although it would be possible to cover both books in less time for an older child who is preparing for the Veritas Press History program. As a fan of the visual value of teaching with timelines, I love the straightforward and gentle approach this series brings to the study of history. Available individually or as a set. PB. 72-83 pgs. Non-reproducible. ~Deanne

It helps young learners understand where and how history is formed in practical ways they will understand.

I wanted to teach my son US History in Kindergarten but struggled to find a US History curriculum that was geared for early elementary ages. I am excited to have found this!

We LOVED using Bede's History of ME for our kindergarten year, and we can't wait to use the next book for 1st grade! Such a great curriculum to help young ones understand the concept of history and how it relates to them.

Do you need to complete Bede's History of ME before starting Bede's History of US? I didn't purchase the first book, and this one comes in a package I bought.

BEST ANSWER: They work independently of each other. We did not complete the History of ME book. We started with History of US and didn’t feel like we were missing anything from not doing the ME book. Hope that helps!
Is this considered consumable? I'm looking at it for 2 students and need to know if they each need a book.

BEST ANSWER: Yes, it’s consumable. That said, I could imagine using the book as a jumping-off point for activities you do on your own, larger paper. If you took that approach, I think you could get by with just one copy.

I have been very disappointed with this book The topics are all over the place some are very obscure those that are more popular lack important information For example: presidents day only discusses Lincoln-it doesn't mention what number president he was or why we celebrate president's day (or George Washington)
