Using The Story of the USA Books 1 and 2 as a base, Core D (for grades 3-5) presents a coherent and fairly detailed picture of American history through literature, biographies, timelines, and textbooks. The teacher's manual provides in-depth lesson plans so you don't have to spend time stressing about what to have your kids read when. A lot of the texts used at this level are historical fiction, which requires this caution: historical fiction when well done can inform our sense of an era, but it doesn't teach the real meat of history. For young students, however, this approach is often capable of making history exciting and fun rather than dra and boring.
Please Note: Sonlight Curriculum does not sell their materials to Exodus Books. We carry many of the same titles, and are often able to obtain used copies of books they publish. The following is culled from their 2013 website and includes much of their selection, though it is not comprehensive, nor is it in any sort of curricular order. For a complete listing, visit the Sonlight Curriculum website.
