The G.R.A.P.E.S. of World History

One of the fears of not using a packaged curriculum for history is that there will be some holes in your timeline.

It can be a bit overwhelming for mom to try and decide what needs to be taught.

(Lists are available, but sometimes too many choices can be as bad as too few!)

As I sat down today to formulate a World History plan for the rest of the school year, I remembered a study tool that I bookmarked last summer.

G.R.A.P.E.S.

Geography

Religion

Achievements

Politics

Economy

Society

These categories make up the basic framework for studying World History.

Anything in addition is just gravy. :)

I created some notebook pages that will work for each civilization we study.

For the older kids, there is a page to fill out and alist of ideas for each category (to help little ears pay attention).

The younger kids will only have to draw a picture for each category.

Feel free to download these for your family.

I hope it makes your World History journey a little easier!
