1st Grade History & Geography Lesson Plans

12.00

Get ready for an adventure through ancient times with LPL’s plans consisting of: weekly timeline activities, review questions, narrations, encyclopedia readings, map and globe work, corresponding literature, and exciting projects!  These activities will bring history to life for your student!    

History and geography are the backbone to Lesson Plan Ladies’ classical curriculum.  We plan our subjects, such as read-aloud, art, and recitation, to align with what is being taught in history.  This enhances students’ learning by making it more connected and engaging.  We also reason that history should be taught chronologically.  It is exciting to know what is happening in Rome and Egypt during the same time period.  In addition, this chronological method of teaching allows your child to understand that the world is much bigger than what he sees and experiences.  

LPL have carefully crafted 36 weeks of lesson plans from the books: The Story of the World Volume 1: Ancient Times, The Story of the World Activity Book One:  Ancient Times, The Usborne Book of World History, and The Kingfisher History Encyclopedia.

The Story of the World Volume 1:  Ancient Times written by Susan Wise Bauer is an engaging and thorough history text written in story form for young children to understand and enjoy.  It begins with nomads, continues chronologically through ancient Greece, and ends after the birth of Christ, with Rome dividing.  Susan Wise Bauer takes you on trips around the world and through thousands of years in this delightful book!  

The Story of the World Activity Book One:  Ancient Times is a companion book to The Story of the World:  Ancient Times.  It contains great review questions, reproducible maps, reproducible activities, corresponding literature, projects, and so much more!  No more searching the Internet for meaningful history activities!  

The Usborne Book of World History is a chronological reference encyclopedia. It is written with young children in mind.  The illustrations bring history to life by helping your child see what each place and time period was like.  This is a wonderful resource.   

The Kingfisher History Encyclopedia is a chronological reference encyclopedia written with a little bit older student in mind.  You may desire to purchase this book for the beautiful illustrations alone!  It contains additional information about the topics studied in The Story of the World (volumes 1-4) and will be appropriate for years to come.
