Illuminations Year 2: The Early Church and the Middle Ages
Illuminations Year 2 transports your entire family back to the days of the early church and the Middle Ages (A.D. 29 – 1456). Through exciting historical fiction and The Mystery of History Volume II, you will meet dozens of people, famous and infamous, who made an impact on world history: Paul, Nero, Augustine, Charlemagne, Chaucer, Marco Polo, Joan of Arc, and so many more.
All of your children in grades 3-12 can learn about the early church and the Middle Ages together through the timeline activities and hands-on projects such as building a yurt and operating your own general store that is feeling the effects of inflation. History will never be called boring with study guides for great literature such as Crispin: The Cross of Lead (England), The Jeweled Astrolabe (Spain), Son of Charlemagne (France), The Story of Rolf and the Viking Bow (Iceland), and more.
Illuminations Year 2 also has special teaching ideas and subjects created just for grades K-2 so your entire family can enjoy the Middle Ages theme together.
Using The Mystery of History Volume II as a history spine, your Illuminations Year 2 plan connects your literature, copywork, and spelling to the historical period you are enjoying. Illuminations Year 2 also includes a full years plan for your choice of five science fields, Bible reading, 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.
