This is a multi-grade guide for the study of world history and culture,
What is wonderful about this resource is that it gives you an opportunity as a parent to give your children a greater worldview, as it takes you continent by continent, sharing basic history, religions, and cultures. The most important thing we have found to be of value when doing this with our children is going continent by continent and country by country. For example, when researching Africa we found major rivers, lakes, deserts, mountain ranges, cities etc, which exposed our children to the general knowledge of these places. This also brings awareness to the needs of that continent, so what happened is we actually ended up using 180 days as a prayer prompt. We would, while studying a specific country, look at their needs, as in their lack, so we could be more specific in praying for that country’s needs.
On a practical level for me as a Mom, it was a wonderful resource whereby I didn’t need to go spend time on Google and source the information for each country, such as main cities or their largest export and import, as all the answers to those questions and facts for each country are compiled in this one resource.
The other thing I would like to share with you about 180 days is that the lady who wrote it is actually a Grandmother who home educated (Homeschooled) all her children, not sure how many, but is around 6 or so, and she now has many grandchildren who are being blessed by this. This Grandmother put this resource together to save home educating (Homeschooling) Moms time from having to source all the information now contained in the parent book. It is also for all ages, so you only need one parent book and then however many student books you need for each one of your children.
This is not a textbook. It is a series of questions that the student must research in order to be able to answer them. Plenty of resources (available on Google) are listed to help the student in his or her research, and the parent’s edition has all the answers. Thus, even if the student cannot find the answer, you will not be lost.
