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

We are loving Veritas History! If you would rather print from your computer make sure to get the CD instead of the print version. There is a ton of photocopying or printing required.

We have used the first series in this program (Old Testament-Ancient Egypt) for my 2nd grade daughter and 45 yo son The whole point of this history program is to learn 32 historical events per school year via flashcards and a memory timeline song In the Old Testament-Ancient Egypt program there are 19 Bible history events and 13 secular history events A sample week might go like this: Monday-- sing the song while showing the cards in order answer questions using the info on the back of the card; Tuesday--sing the song and do flashcards review info on the card look up info in recommended resources to learn more about the event; Wednesday--sing the song and do flashcards do a project such as a salt dough map Thursday--sing song and do flashcards review information do another project Friday--sing song and do flashcards take a test My children have really enjoyed learning in this way They enjoy acting out the history song as they see the flashcards (for example they pretend to gallop on a horse when we sing about Alexander the Great)I also mixed up the cards and have them put them in chronological order It is surprising how fast they can do thisI found the program easy to use I did modify some of the tests as I thought they were too difficult for my 7 year-old We used the Enhanced CD instead of the hard copy teacher's manual Sometimes I wish I had a hard copy to thumb through quickly but the Enhanced CD makes it much easier for printing copies of reproducibles (no scanning or copying required because the info is on your computer) The teacher's manual wouldn't necessarily be required but it does contain lots of neat project ideas reproducibles tests and answers Teacher prep time is moderate to high If you do just the cards and song (which would still provide your child with a basic overview of history) it's very low prep but if you want to do projects (which we have loved doing) it's going to take more time These projects are worth the time because they have really helped the information to stickWe were very successful in using this with my 4 and 7 year-olds (Our 2 yo even made a salt dough sculpture of Lot's wife) The worksheets and tests are geared more toward older children for the most part (I would say 4th grade+) The projects vary (some are more appropriate for K-2 while others were definitely geared for 4th grade+) The program was designed so that it could be used successfully with varying agesFor auditory and visual learners this program is great! Every day they hear the song and see the flashcards (many of which have fine art reproductions on them) You don't have to order the recommended resources to get a good history education but we ordered a few of them: Children's Illustrated Bible Child's Story Bible Streams of Civilization Victor Journey Through the Bible Usborne Time Traveler Modern Rhymes About Ancient Times and Student Bible Atlas We have used both of the Bibles a great deal and the Victor Journey Through the Bible as well (it's great and the photos are wonderful) Streams of Civilization might be more useful to us later but right now I can't hold their attention with it We have used other resources that are not listed on the cards (the Usborne's World History book and Living Long Ago) My children love those! We also love the Modern Rhymes About Ancient Times (great for memorization)The program is reasonably priced compared with other history curricula The cards do need to be laminated because they will be handled daily We plan to use each level of this history curriculum I am impressed with how well the events have stayed fresh in our minds! If you use this curriculum you will learn just as much (if not more) as your children do!
