Customer Questions & Answers for
Notgrass Company America the Beautiful Curriculum Package

This one-year American history, geography, and literature course will bring students through the dynamic past of the United States. America the Beautiful Part 1 includes 75 lessons that begin with life before European colonization and continue through the first years of the Civil War. America the Beautiful Part 2 includes 75 lessons that begin with America's expansion into the West during the early 1800s and continue into modern times. Five daily lessons typically focus on an element such as a major event of the time period, an amazing creation God's placed in America, an American landmark, a biographical study, and notes on how daily life was lived at the time.

Simply written instructions are tailored for independent learners; at the beginning of each unit, an overview, list of lessons, and list of additional books needed are provided. Lessons may be read aloud, or alone. Four to six activities are provided at the end of each lesson, which parents may choose assignments from; each takes approximately 45-90 minutes, and students are not expected to complete all of them. Activities often cover thinking biblically, vocabulary, creative writing, or activities in Maps of America the Beautiful Timeline of America the Beautiful, We the People Student Workbook, or the (sold-separately) Lesson Review books. One special family activity is assigned per week, including arts and crafts, recipes, and multi-age projects.

We the People is a rich collection of letters, documents, speeches, songs, poems, stories, memoirs, and articles written as American history unfolded. Documents are not in chronological order; they are indexed by title, author, and chronological order, however. Features the thoughts and words of Lewis and Clark, the Wright Brothers, Benjamin Franklin, and others.

Maps of America the Beautifulasks students to identify and mark locations on maps that examine history (World War II, Lewis & Clark) and places of cultural importance (landmarks across the US, the National Mall), as well as simple geography (the islands of Hawaii).

Timeline of America the Beautiful is designed to be used with the texts; they often provide an assignment to be completed in this book. Simply turn to the assigned year, and find the blank with the correct lesson number noted. Students copy the assigned statement in the blank, and may color in the illustration if desired.

The answer key provides line-listed answers for the America the Beautiful Student Workbook, Timeline of America the Beautiful, America the Beautiful Lesson Review, and the vocabulary questions at the end of the textbook chapters. Answers are organized by book, and then lesson number.

Grades 5-8.

This kit includes:

  • America the Beautiful Book 1, 439 pages, hardcover; black and white and color illustrations and photographs are included.
  • America the Beautiful Book 2; Continuing from Book 1, it contains pages 439-1007. hardcover; black and white and color illustrations and photographs are included.
  • We the People, 220 pages, hardcover.
  • Maps of America the Beautiful; non-reproducible.
  • Timeline of America the Beautiful

The text books America the Beautiful I & II and We the People can be used by multiple students. You could share the timeline if you don't care who writes in it. But each student should probably have their own map book to work in. We also purchased the separate student workbook. Each student would need their own.

For use with additional students you will need extra copies of the Timeline (WW668846) and Maps (WW668627). You might also want to purchase either the Student Workbook (WW668952) or Lesson Review Book (WW668537), which are not included in the kit, for each student.

The curriculum is arranged to be completed in one year. If you want to do a survey of American History and briefly cover a lot of topics, you can complete it in one year. My decision, however, was to expand it to 2 years. If you use the 2 year method, you will be able to study the topics covered more in depth, which I highly recommend.

This curriculum has 150 lessons to be completed in 1 year. I am stretching it out over two years by adding creative art, music, and dramas to go along with each lesson. I am planning 1 volume per year.

Working one lesson per week, it covers one year. We actually took about 11 months, but that's because we don't always work five days a week. We worked the map book as well as the activity book for upper elementary level. My daughter enjoyed this curriculum, and I think you will too.

Question

can younger kids use this

My daughter will be in 4th grade next year. She reads at an advanced level and enjoys history. Could this curriculum be used with a fourth grader or would it be to advanced?

I think a fourth grader that reads well could do this curriculum. My daughter just finished it in 6th grade, and she enjoyed it. The material is relevant for any middle school age. We definitely recommend this product, as well as their high school history products.

This curriculum is designed for Middle School, Grades 5-8 (Ages 10-14). We recommend viewing the sample pages available for the kit and the individual items to see if this curriculum would work with your daughter.

Question

Could it be used for high school?

I am purchasing for a 5th grader - but have a 10th grader doing US History, too. I see it is suitable for up to 8th grade, but would it be OK for high school level? Hoping to save if I can.

In my opinion, the curriculum is not suitable for high school, unless you are willing to add to the program. The reading is very light, the workbook work is very basic, and the textbook skims over a lot of information. (See my full review).

answer 2
I am considering using the second half for my soon to be high schooler, spreading it over a year instead of a semester. If I do this, he will have to do most of the extra activities, and I will choose high school appropriate literature to supplement (the books suggested are for middle schoolers). I will probably add a few critical thinking type projects as well. I looked at the high school curriculum offered by Notgrass, but was overwhelmed with all the suggested activities.

The package comes with the timeline and maps, both of which we liked. My daughter worked the lesson review workbook, and she liked having a workbook to write in and having questions to test her learning. The red student workbook was a little young for her (6th grade) and it felt lot busy work, so we decided not to complete that. Hope this helps.
