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

I found this book on Veritas Press. I am using it for my Kindergartener along with a HUGE timeline. It sounds like a really fun way to set the foundations for later learning !

Is this appropriate for my 4 year old and First grader to do together? Are they workbooks or teacher guides or both?
User on Mar 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You could definitely use them for both ages. Of course, the 1st grader is going to get more out of them. I used the ME book with my 5 year old and the US book with him at 6, but he easily could have used them a year earlier. They are just workbooks. Each child would need their own book as the activities are cutting, coloring, mazes etc... There is no teacher guide because everything is explained in the book.
Is this faith based?
User on Sep 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there is Christian content in the Veritas Press materials.

Good first History book
The books are a great introduction to history. The books are also made to be written in, which I don't like as I have multiple children and the cost was rather high for just a workbook. So we usually do the activity either on a copy or different page.

I usually do about a page per lesson. There is generally a short story or lesson and then an activity to go with it.
