European History Scope and Sequence

We are excited to have two European History resources!

Our original resource, The Kind Kingdom Volume 1 includes an overview of the Middle Ages through the Cold War with monthly themes and the beautiful series, The Chronicles of Narnia. 

Our newest resource, The Kind Kingdom Volume 2 is perfect for families who have already completed The Kind Kingdom, or who want a resource for older elementary and junior high students to use independently. It includes heart warming literature, readings from Our Island Story, a Botany study, and several new art and poetry pieces to study.

The themes overlap so you could use Kind Kingdom Volume 1 in your morning time, and let your older child do the Volume 2 readings on their own, or you could use it as the year long resource for your whole family. Volume 2 has several new poems, art pieces and recipes, new literature, and new science activities. You can find the full book lists for both resources here;
