Start by Choosing Your Winter Promise Exclusives in Step 1, Then Add the Components You Wish to Build Your Package
Step 1 (REQUIRED): Choose Your WinterPromise Exclusives
This Bundle is the “Heart and Soul” of the Ancient World Theme
You’ll want to choose one of the sets below, as you need these resources to complete your theme. These resources are specially created for a rich educational experience by WinterPromise, and so they offer a lot of content presented in intriguing ways, including active learning opportunities. Most are used for many or all of the weeks of the year, and they focus on practical, you-can-do it, open & go family experiences!
You can choose from a set for 4th to 8th grade or for high school students, or purchase one of each to school a combination of ages. You can compare below whether the Ebook, Mixed, or Print Bundle is right for your family.
Choose One of These Bundles for 4th to 8th Grade Students:
Step 2 (REQUIRED): Decide on the Themed Essentials Books
This Book Bundle is Essential to Your Ancient Theme
The resources in this bundle are used for many weeks and represent the essential content your student needs to work through this program, whether you are using the 4/8 Set or the Senior High Set. You need only purchase one set, even if you are schooling more than one student.
Since some families already own the book Mystery of History Volume 1, we offer the bundle without it, but if you don’t own it, you’ll want to purchase the full set.
Step 3 (REQUIRED): Add Theme Completer Books
These Bundle Options Complete the Ancient Theme
We offer two options for completing your Ancient program — one set for 4/8 and one set for Senior High. If you are schooling both, you’ll need both completer sets.
Though used for a shorter period than the resources in the Essential Bundle, these books are the ones needed for the individual age groups, and are specially chosen for their appeal to their respective student groups.
Step 4 (OPTIONAL): Decide on Theme Specific Add-ons
You Can Add This Optional Resource for Senior High Students:
The Archaeological Study Bible is scheduled in the Ancient Senior High guide, and is highly recommended, but is not included in your package due to its price. A fantastic study Bible that gives you insight into the culture of the Old and New Testament world with features on the daily life of ancient peoples who lived in Mesopotamia, their beliefs, practices and more!
Step 5 (RECCOMENDED): Add Adventure Reading
This Bundle Offers Families Read-Together Fictional Books
Our Adventure Reading book sets are designed for families to read together, and spark discussions about important topics and values. They are a valuable time for families to use for connecting and passing along priorities and values to their kids in easy, teachable moments. Many sets include award winning titles that you’ll want as “friends” in your family library!
Step 6 (OPTIONAL): Add Notebooking Resources
These Items are Required if You Don’t Already Own Them:
Timelines in History – Each student you’re schooling needs their own copy.
Your Choice of Timeline Figures – You can choose from those below. Each are scheduled in your Ancient guide.
Step 7 (OPTIONAL): Add Geographic Resources for Mapping
These Resources Are Recommended for Completion of the Ancient Geography in This Theme:
Atlas of World History – This atlas will help students complete the historical maps assigned in this theme, and the pages needed are referenced in the guide. Though use of this particular atlas is not required — you could certainly use any good historical atlas — if you don’t have a historical world atlas, this would be a fine choice. It is scheduled in each of our world history theme guides.
World Maps CD – Your student will need world maps for the Ancient theme, and this collection offers beautiful heritage style maps.
