Looking for a story-filled approach to American history for your early elementary students?
We are excited to announce that we will soon be publishing a new American history curricula called Adventures in America. It is designed to be an early introduction to American history for your Kindergartner or before you begin the traditional four year history cycle.
This amazing curriculum includes brief stories for the teacher to read, so you don’t need an additional spine!
Here is a short video introducing Adventures in America:
Adventures in America Program Details

About the Author
The author, Angela Blau, is a dear friend of mine. You may notice her, as she has recently joined the Elemental Science team as one of our editors. She holds a BS in Intercultural Studies and currently homeschools her own children.
She has spent countless hours researching and writing Adventures in America, so that you can be confident that your student will get a balanced and accurate overview of American history.
In short, Adventures in America provides you with all the tools to create a literature rich and hands-on environment in which to introduce your students to American history.
I cannot recommend this program enough, which is why we decided to publish it. Head to our website to grab your copy of this story-filled approach to American history.
The actual program will be available by mid-July of this year. I encourage you to go, take a look and spread the word about Adventures in America!
You do realize that you have just thrown a wrench into my carefully laid plans for the fall, right? 😉
This looks wonderful, now to decide if we will add this in, or use it to replace what I already had “decided” on.
I love that shipping is included in the price!
Sorry, Robyn, but doesn’t it look fabulous! Angela did such a good job.
I downloaded this product and can’t believe how much of a blessing it is for my family. With a chronically ill daughter, I need this type of planning all laid out in an easy to follow schedule. I am loving Intro to Science for this very reason. PLEASE (and I am seriously begging) create a history program using SOTW with a schedule as complete as this. I understand I can put my own together with the AG, but I need simplicity so it gets done. Please?
I passed on your comment to Angela, she said that she will find it very hard to resist such a plea :). I’m hoping that she will write future levels, but I can’t promise it yet because she hasn’t said yes.
