Level: Form I (K–3rd grades)
In this multi-sensory and interdisciplinary block class, students will learn Latin through song and play, hear and narrate living history stories, study art and artists related to the history they are studying, and make their own original works of art in response.
Bluebonnet Scholars offers history on a rotating three-year cycle with studies synchronized across Forms 1 through 4 (grades K through 12th) so that all students are studying the same time period together. History spine texts for Form 1 (grades 1 to 3) are as follows:
- Cycle Year 1: Ancient History (2020-2021) (creation to c. 476 AD)—The Story of the World, 1
- Cycle Year 2: Medieval History (2021-2022) (c. 476 AD to 1368)—The Story of the World, 2
- Cycle Year 3: Early Modern History (2022-2023) (c. 1368 to 1850)—The Story of the World, 3
In addition to the narrative history text in The Story of the World series, the Form 1 students will also study artists chronologically through the Artistic Pursuits Early Elementary series and make creative works of their own in response. For the Latin portion of this block class, students will use Song School Latin from Classical Academic Press. We will provide vocabulary from book 1 with new students, new and returning students will use Song School Latin book 2.
