In New York, 1st graders are required to be taught not just history but specifically United States history.
I don't have a problem with this, obviously. It's wonderful to learn about our country. The problem I am having is that I can't seem to find any curriculum that fits their learning level.
I could always just put a lesson plan together from scratch, using different historical story books and things like that, but I would prefer to have a solid reference as a starting point. (Since I'm a homeschool novice and all)
The only thing that I have found is from A Beka Book: My America and My World.
Does anyone have any experience with that book? I was excited about it until I came across a review that mentioned something about the A Beka history books presenting the Bible as fact and I was hoping for something secular. (To be clear I'm not anti-Bible or anything, I'm actually Catholic lol)
Any recommendations on places to look for some sort of US history textbook to use as a starting point?
