The Holy Land- Bible W9, Q1

I am very excited about how the timing has worked out for us to learn about the Holy Land while using two different curricula. This is my first double-purpose post where I am blogging about both The Noah Plan and Creation to the Greeks lessons in our homeschool.

Note: I am still using the Noah Plan because I love it! However, since there aren't any families using the Noah Plan (that I know of) in our area, I wanted to use My Father's World as well so I'd have something in common with other families in our area. That being said, I am still using the Bible Principles to build upon our lessons in the My Father's World curriculum.

So... I covered the Bible Principle and Leading Idea with all of my children (because this is something for all ages to learn). When teaching the Noah Plan lesson (using a simple map of the Holy Land), my older kids reviewed it. Then my younger one colored and listened as I expanded on this lesson with my older kids using the lesson from Creation to the Greeks (which consists of a more detailed map of the Holy Land).

 This works so well as the Creation to the Greeks lesson ends up building upon what my older ones have already learned via The Noah Plan (Isa 2810: (KJV) For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little....) And that right there is part of what the Principle Approach method is about!

You can download your free Noah Plan notebooking pages... this one has a traceable title and this one does not. You can go here to download and print out a copy simple map of the Holy Land for an answer key.

I also created a notebooking page for the Creation to the Greeks week 3 lesson which is combined with the Noah Plan lesson. You can download it for free here.

I like that my kids are mapping about the Holy Land because it helps to make the history in the Bible a reality (these events actually happened in these places to these people).
