Using a mix of geography and history, your students will learn about the classical world, and the story of different people groups leaving Babel and spreading their culture and influence around the world. A Child’s Geography Vol. 3: Explore the Classical World is designed for students in the 4th – 6th grade level. It is scheduled for 3-day weeks over a year-long interactive journey. Students completing this course will:

  • Explore the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea, including Greece and Italy
  • Visit the Balkan Peninsula to explore Albania, North Macedonia, Serbia, and more
  • Discover historic sites that include castles, monasteries, fortresses, windmills, and ancient ruins
  • See how Christians like the Apostle Paul and others helped bring God’s Word to the world

Biblical Worldview

We approach this journey from a biblical worldview that affirms the truth of God’s Word. As part of the course, students will learn about each country’s history, which in a few cases includes very brief details about their false gods, such as the Greek “gods” of Olympus. In today’s popular culture, these “gods” are often portrayed as heroes in movies, comic books, and more. We, however, have chosen to take the factual approach, making clear these stories are myths about false gods while reaffirming the eternal truths of the one true God as presented in His Holy Word.

Course components include:

  • Travel Log notes at the end of each section to sum up important points
  • Travel Journal at the end of each chapter to record trip highlights, favorites, and more
  • Supply list, recipes, and crafts
  • Worksheets, chapter tests, final exam, glossary, and answer key
  • Maps and activities to promote map-reading skills
  • A helpful course calendar for easy scheduling.

This book is so colorful and engaging. The content is written in a living book style. There are many full-color stunning pictures, diagrams, and maps included.

Our favorite!
Review by Crystal
We have loved every book in the A Child’s Geography series, and this is no exception. Geography has always been a boring subject for us before we found this series. Now my kids and I all look forward to geography each day! I especially love how the text is Christ-centered and includes relevant church history as well. The curriculum is well laid out, and includes a suggested daily schedule to complete the year long course in 3 days a week. Supply lists for activities and shopping lists for recipes are included as well. This is definitely an open-and-go curriculum for us.

The text is interesting and engaging, and the pictures are rich and plentiful. Throughout the chapters, the activities are varied among written worksheets, timelines, maps, travel logs, recipes, crafts, and more. The different activities help your kids to become immersed and engaged with the countries and cultures that you study, making everything come to life.
Excellent geography course!
Review by Becky V.
As a big fan of the series A Child’s Geography, I was so excited to see that Volume 3, Explore the Classical World, had been updated. This series is phenomenal; my kids have loved going through it!

This course is set up to follow a 36 week schedule, 3 days a week, at about a 4th grade level. I find the context to be age appropriate, but also flexible enough for use in family learning with different ages and levels of learning.

One of the reasons I have enjoyed using this series is that it is very open and go. Any materials or supplies that you need are listed by chapter at the beginning of the book. The text is set up in a way that each chapter is divided into each day’s readings, and the adventure challenges are typically on stand-alone pages. This is great for those who buy the digital format - so easy to just print out the worksheets!

At the back of the text, chapter reviews are included that can be used for additional worksheets or as graded quizzes. A final exam is also included. The answer keys for all adventure challenges, chapter reviews, and the final exam are all found at the end of the book.

I appreciate the variety of activities throughout this course, it is never boring! It is very hands on and interactive. My kids loved the travel journal that was at the end of each chapter that allowed them to reflect on the leg of the journey they just finished. Activities include map work, creating a timeline, cooking recipes from the various countries, and many more, all with a biblical worldview woven through.

This course is a great addition to any homeschooling family. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a biblically sound geography course that will keep your kids excited for their next journey!
Another Great Geography Course
Review by Kristy
I have gone through a couple of other books in the A Child's Geography series. Explore the Classical World is the 3rd in the series and it is amazing. The pictures and written materials are very detailed. Terri Johnson did an amazing job writing and creating this book.

It goes from Greece to Italy and many places in between. The maps and pictures alone are worth every penny but the "Adventures", or activities, are a lot of fun as well. My favorite part is the recipes that are included in each section. The book includes a grocery list as well as a list of supplies for the activities located at the beginning. It makes it much easier to find as we are reading along.

I love how the author wrote it as if we are actually on an adventure to these far away places. We actually get to see how the every day people lived and worked. It makes you feel like you are a part of the story. My children love this type of narrative. Also included in some of the lessons is a Learning the Language section. The author uses Bible verses to allow the readers to learn a new language. I find this very fascinating and exciting.

I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a history or geography course for 4th-6th graders. It is easy to read and understand and the activities and amazing recipes will have your students begging to do more lessons.
Well Written
Review by Laurie
This Geography course is so well written. The way the author wrote this course is so engaging, especially for children. The colorful pictures help tell the story of each country and enhance learning. One great example is in the last Chapter on Malta they show a picture of a scuba diver looking at a shipwreck. This opened my kids' imaginations to want to deep dive into more learning.

This course is so versatile in the ways you can teach, from a single child to family style. This course is awesome I recommend it.
Beautiful Curriculum!
Review by Krista
Absolutely love this curriculum! Recommended for grades 4-6, yet easily adaptable for all ages; even I found it exciting and interesting for myself!
The layout of this course is enjoyable to read with captivating and stunning pictures included. This course is also designed to accommodate your specific schedule, wether that is the course recommended 3 days, or something different. I admire curriculum that can be adjusted to fit your specific families needs, and this is that!
This course allows you to be immersed into specific geography, and history, while learning key facts, crafts, and recipes! I also love the supply list included in the book! I absolutely recommend this for any homeschool!
Great Curriculum
Review by Ashley
I absolutely love this curriculum. The pictures are amazing, and very colorful. By looking at them it feels like I'm really there. There are 15 chapters, a glossary, chapter reviews, final exam, answer key, and Maps along with an easy to flow schedule, which suggest that you do this curriculum 3 days a week for a total of 36 weeks. It also includes a supply list in front of the book so you know what you will need for the chapter. I really like that it has recipes throughout the course so you can try different foods from that area of study. I will be using this with my kiddos.
I learned a lot in this course
Review by Lexie
This course is designed to be used from 4th to 6th grade, but even I learned so much reading along this. In my opinion, this would be a great addition to a family geography. This specific course covers from Italy, to Greece, then north up to Romania. The course schedule has it laid out to be used 3 days per week. In this course, you are introduced to a country and learn location of big cities. History is brought forth not only in reading this course, but in the vivid pictures included. Crafts, questions, language studies, a timeline, and even a recipe are included in the text. I feel that it does a great job at covering many areas in the study of each country. Instead of just bland facts stated, you get immersed in the country and the author's descriptions make you feel like you are there. Chapter reviews, a final exam, and the answer key are included in the end of this book.
