In Year 4, we study World History in order to understand the battle between tyranny and liberty.
Students are introduced to real people, in real time, with real events set into the context of world history.
We begin with the expansion of the United States ‘From Sea to Shining Sea’ and finish the year with the Post-Christian West.
We answer questions like;
What are the key areas of American expansion?
What does liberty give birth to?
How did the Founding Fathers view slavery?
What philosophy of government was behind Nazi Germany and the Axis powers?
Is that philosophy of government active today, and if so, where?
What type of worldviews oppose liberty for the individual?
What philosophies or agendas are threatening our liberties today?
How an individual answers these questions is the framework in which he or she reasons and relates to the world and life events.
Pathway to Liberty is a holistic curriculum covering Bible, history, character, writing, vocabulary and geography.
Join us in learning about the battle between tyranny and liberty and building a solid foundation from which your students can build on for a lifetime.

The history of Greece is taught chronologically, as students read short biographical sketches outlining the lives of important figures.
The selections begin with the Greek creation and flood stories, then continue with legendary figures like Perseus, Hercules, and Jason. Then come the leaders of the Trojan War: Agamemnon, Achilles, & Odysseus. The lawgivers of the Greek cities (Lycurgus, Draco, & Solon) are profiled and the leaders who led the defense of Greece against the Persian invasion are covered (Miltiades, Leonidas, & Themistocles).
The second half of the book covers the Greek classical period (Pericles, Alcibiades, & Socrates) and finally, the age of Alexander the Great (Demosthenes, Aristotle, & Ptolemy).
Your fourth or fifth graders should be able to enjoy it independently,older students can read it as well and not feel like they have been given something that is “babyish.”

Jeanne Bendick, through text and pictures, admirably succeeds in bringing to life the ancient Greek mathematician who enriched mathematics and all branches of science. Against the backdrop of Archimedes’ life and culture, the author discusses the man’s work, his discoveries and the knowledge later based upon it. The simple, often humorous, illustrations and diagrams greatly enhance the text.
