Sonlight Core E

As a follow-up to Core D, Core E focuses on 19th-century American history to modern times. Specific topics include the Civil War, Helen Keller, the Wright brothers, and more. The Landmark History of the American People is the core text, with the usual selection of biographies, novels, etc. rounding out the curriculum. Kids especially begin to realize America's world role as they study the World Wars from an American perspective. With a Bible program, hands-on activities, CDs and timelines, and much more, this is a fun way to learn about some rather dark periods of our nation's past.

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.
