Grade 5

North America Is the Lord’s is a comprehensive history and geography of Anglo-America from a God-centered perspective.

This study credits God, the Creator, as the sovereign Lord. It describes opposing forces in history: the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness. Social values belonging to God’s kingdom are upheld. This book counters the humanistic idea that we control our destinies, and that our land thrives because of our own ingenuity.

You have two options for this course: use the LightUnit study guides, or follow the textbook exercises.

The LightUnits are self-directed study guides for the textbook. Each includes self checks and a test.

For a textbook study, use the study-by-textbook materials in place of the LightUnits. Test packets may be ordered separately.

Social_studies_grade_6

Grade 6

Sunrise Edition

Social Studies 600 is based on Neighbors in Latin America, a beautifully illustrated full-color textbook. Units 1-4 cover the early history, geography, and climate of Latin America as a whole. Units 5-10 divide Latin America into regions and give specific information about the major countries in each region.

A limited number of activities appear in the textbook, designed to review only the highlights. For student work activities, choose either the workbook study or the LightUnit study for better coverage of the material. Either option is a full-year course.

The ten LightUnits match the ten units of the textbook. Two quizzes and a LightUnit test are included in each LightUnit.

The two-workbook option provides one worksheet per lesson and will require more teacher input. This option includes a pack of quizzes, reviews, and tests for each student.
