    Questions on Middle Ages History books

    Hi,

    My three children will be in 1st, 3rd, and 6th in the fall. I've used a wide variety of curriculum and am leaning more and more to MP for several of my choices this fall. Currently my oldest is doing FFL and CC Fables. The next child is using PL, and the younger one is following along with him. We use and love the DVDs for all three of these courses!! Next year they will all move to the next stage and use LC1, SFL, and CC Narrative.

    I would like to also use Famous Men of the Middle Ages. Should I use that for both my 3rd and 6th grader? Or should I get The Book of the Middle Ages for the 6th grader? Do the two books mesh well together?

    Thank You,

    Christina

    Hello.

    FMMA would be challenging for your 3rd grader, but it could be done as a family read-aloud with the 3rd grader participating. Have you done FMR yet? That is an easier history and might be a better place to start. And have your students studied Greek mythology? That is also a good fit for a 3rd grader. If you do decide to do the Middle Ages, FMMA is plenty difficult for your 6th grader, so I wouldn't add the Book of the Middle Ages. Also, our 6th grade literature is the Middle Ages and would be a good fit for the 6th grader, but not the 3rd grader. It would be too difficult.

    Regards,

    Tanya

        Thank you for the helpful feedback. We have not done FMR or FMG, but we've covered ancient history several times in other ways. I asked the boys which area of history they wanted to cover and they chose the middle ages. If we stick with that choice I will get FMMA for the 6th grader and as a go-along for the younger children. I had also planned on using the 6th grade literature choices as family read-alouds.
