are currently revising and updating the intermediate level of this study guide. As a couple books have
fallen out of print, we have replaced those, and also replaced a couple of
the existing books with new titles. We plan to have a new intermediate Study Guide

2018-2019 school year. For more information please email
Featuring separate notes for intermediate (5th-8th grade) and high school level students, this guide leads you through the fascinating civilizations of ancient Sumeria, Egypt, Greece and Rome. Biblical history is combined with the writings of Shakespeare, Henryk Sienkiewicz, Padraic Colum, Genevieve Foster and others. Detailed study notes, vocabulary lists, maps, lesson plans and tests with answer keys all combine to make this an exciting study that reveals the relevancy of the ancient world to ours today!
Includes references, a listing of relevant websites, vocabulary lists, historical notes, comprehension questions and answer key, and much more. Everything you need to teach ancient history using the best literature available! The Intermediate section of the study guide contains 71 lessons (complete 2-3 per week) and the Senior High section contains 91 lessons (complete 3 per week).
