I don't know if anyone will be interested in this. This was something I posted in another group to show the comparisons. Thought I would post it here too.
It is Lesson 1 and 3 of Ancient history by Pandia Press - level 1
and lessons 1 and 5 of Story Of The World - volume 1 - Ancient history.
Some lessons are in the comments section.
This is straight from their guides. To show the differences between these two curriculums.
I believe both are for grades k-4
Prep for Lesson 1
copy pages 3,5,7,8,9,11,13,15,16 in your Evan Moor History Pockets book.
Complete pocket 1 "What is history" in your pocket book. Place in notebook (binder) when complete.
Read SOTW Introduction "How do we know what happened?"
Use a childrens dictionary and help child look up and define "archaeology". Place this copy work in the notebook.
Draw and color a picture about what was read in this lesson. Hints: tree ring, archaeologist digging up bones, family tree.
Look at the UILE
Internet: Go to the UILE website, type in the page number that corresponds with the daily lessons, and browse the related websites.
(UILE: "usbourne internet linked encylopedia of world history" book).
Book List (recommended reading list):
Story Of The World (Activity Guide)
There are none listed specifically.
Though there are 4 encyclopedias used for all of the lessons:
Lesson 1 - introduction
Encyclopedia cross references
UBOWH pages 2-3
UILE pages 104-105
KFIHOTW pages 1-8
KFHE viii - ix
