Illuminations Year 1: Creation to the Resurrection
Immerse your family in the history of the Bible, starting with Creation, then moving through Noah’s flood, the Ice Age, and the Hebrews, and culminating in the resurrection of Jesus Christ (Creation – A.D. 33). Along the way, you will engage with the cultures and stories of the ancient civilizations that made their mark on the world: Sumerians, Phoenicians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and more.
History becomes the favorite time of your homeschool day with detailed study guides that lead you through great literature scheduled throughout the year, such as The Golden Goblet (ancient Egypt), God King (ancient Israel), and The Bronze Bow (ancient Rome).
All of your children in grades 3-12 can learn together how the history of the Old and New Testaments fits into the span of world history through the timeline activities and hands-on projects such as building a model of the floating bridge constructed by King Xerxes and going on a library scavenger hunt like King Darius.
Illuminations Year 1 also has special teaching ideas and subjects created just for grades K-2 so your entire family can enjoy the ancient civilization theme together.
Using The Mystery of History Volume I as a history spine, your Illuminations Year 1 plan connects your literature, copywork, spelling, and Bible studies to the historical period you are enjoying. Illuminations Year 1 also includes a full year’s plan for your choice of five science fields, geography, vocabulary, several writing and grammar options, and life skills studies for high school students. (See the book lists tab for a full curriculum list.) Every purchase of Illuminations includes the powerful scheduler software that allows you to create customized weekly guides based on the Illuminations plan plus any modifications you desire.
