Ancient History with Royal Baloo *BETA*
(Yes, this is secular history!)
Is history one of the subjects you're not sure how to tackle?
Maybe you don't know where to start or you don't have time to scour Pinterest looking for all the right activities?
Or you don't know how to fascinate your kids with all the events of the past?
This Ancient History curriculum is designed to help with all of that. It's a clear outline of what to teach, resources to make it fun and engaging, and all presented in a clear and easy fashion.
Join in on this BETA version for the best deal.
This is a digital product. You will receive a PDF for the entire curriculum.
What do you use as a spine?
My recommended spine is the Usborne Encyclopedia of World History. However, I also provide page references for Everything You Need to Ace World History in One Big Fat Notebook.
There are no required books but it is recommended to pick a book for each unit or section.

Is it secular?
Yes! My whole goal was to provide a history curriculum that did not come from a religiously biased point of view and did not rely on any texts with a religious bias.
Religion will be covered as appropriate. I.E. We will discuss Egyptian gods, Greek gods, etc. We will also cover the origins of modern religion including Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, and Buddhism. They will be presented in a historically factual manner as appropriate for kids.
What age range is this meant for?
I have designed this to work with my kids, primarily my elementary age kids. However, I have also provided extra pages for middle school age kids to work on note-taking and writing skills.
