Illuminations Year 3: The Renaissance, Reformation, and Growth of Nations
All of your children in grades 3-12 can learn together what the Renaissance gave to Western civilization, how and why the Protestant Reformation happened, and the impact of the Age of Reason through timeline activities and hands-on projects such as creating a miniature cannon that really fires and decorating “sailor sherbet floats.” Illuminations‘ literature-rich approach to history brings events from the past into sharp focus with read-alouds such as Along Came Galileo (Galileo Galilei), The Bible Smuggler (William Tyndale), I, Juan de Pareja (Spain), The Shakespeare Stealer (Shakespeare), and many more. Illuminations Year 3 also has special teaching ideas and subjects created just for grades K-2 so your entire family can enjoy the Renaissance and Reformation theme together.
Using The Mystery of History Volume III as a history spine, your Illuminations Year 3 plan connects your literature, copywork, and spelling to the historical period you are enjoying. Illuminations Year 3 also includes a full year’s plan for your choice of five science fields, Bible reading, geography, vocabulary, several writing and grammar options, life skills studies for high school students, and a composers and music theory schedule available only in Year 3! (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.
