Free Lesson Plans: Introduction to World History Part 1: Myths, Maps, and Marvels


Myths, Maps, and Marvels coordinates books, maps, timelines, activities, and websites to provide a thorough overview of Ancient Civilizations for early elementary grades, plus it also includes plans for poetry appreciation/memorization, great literature selections, and an optional introduction to world religions. The guide contains daily lesson plans for 36 weeks, but is intended to be followed only as closely or as loosely as you desire. Feel free to modify to suit your own family’s needs and aspirations!

This 150+ page guide is a free download! No strings or anything – This is just my way of helping to make homeschooling an affordable and enjoyable alternative.

When using this program, you will probably want to purchase some of the reference resources, if you don’t already have them, but you should be able to find many of the literature selections at your local library. You can choose from versions that use Susan Wise Bauer’s Story of the World or Gombrich’s A Little History of the World.
