"Oppression of spirit is not on
the public school curriculum. Rather, it's a noxious by-product produced
while stewing schooling in a pot w/ unions, administrators,
multi-billion dollar budgets, state education departments, and school
boards, then letting politicians control the heat." Linda Dobson

"When you want to teach
children to think, you begin by treating them seriously when they are
little, giving them responsibilities, talking to them candidly,
providing privacy and solitude for them, and making them readers and
thinkers of significant thoughts from the beginning. That's *if* you
want to teach them to think." ~ Bertrand Russell

 We are in our second year, A New World of Adventure.  This year only has three units, and we are still doing the first one, "Into a New Land."  You are the only other person I know who uses it which is a shame because it is so awesome!!

Quoting TigerofMu:

We love our Learning Adventures!  Which unit are you in?

Quoting JoyfulMommyof2:

 I use a Christian history-based unit study curriculum called the Learning Adventures series.  We absolutely love it!  It covers all subjects except arithmetic and extracurriculars.  My 13-year old uses Math-U-See (struggled in Math until using this curriculum) and Mavis Beacon typing.  My 9-year old uses Singapore Math (excels in Math and this is a challenging curriculum) and Typing Instructor for Kids.

There was another reply about Learning Adventures in another post somewhere, but it might have been you!  I think it might just be that it's not very well known, but I share it with everyone I get a chance to.  It is a wonderful curriculum! 

We are in our second year, but we're still finishing Volume I, World of Adventure.  We do one lesson a day now, but last year, we sometimes split each lesson into two days, or spent extra time on a lesson because we did ALL of the support activities or went even deeper into the topic.  I ordered the Little Adventurers Supplements for Greece and Rome, and those were fun :)!
