Historical Stories of Survival 2019 Silver Sponsor

Finding a curriculum that fits the needs and learning styles of different members of your family can be a challenge. Historical Stories of Survival is a multi-sensory curriculum that follows a pattern of “Read it, Hear it, See it, Write it, and Do it.” Historical Stories of Survival literature and activity guides utilize the strong interest that the “I Survived” books create and build upon it with additional activities to help with retention and comprehension. With activities in history, science, crafts, art, survival skills, and more, your students will enjoy learning new things with every unit.

Discount Code Details at the bottom of this article!

There are enough books in the series for two full years of schooling or more! These units also make great learning opportunities for summer and holiday breaks. The idea is that the I Survived reader books would be used as a catalyst to ignite interest in different times in history as well as different science topics.

The first week is used to read the book, do simple crafts, and work on a lapbook. The following five weeks are divided up, based on the subject matter, into areas of history, geography, and science. Each week has specific projects to choose from based on what works best for your family, as well as pre-identified books to teach from. Although the books can be purchased, most are available at local libraries or through inter-library loans. Although some project kits and resources can be purchased, many projects or alternatives are available for free – these too have been identified for you.
