F.A.Q. for our Early American History Curriculums

All 3 levels track together, so everyone will learn about the same (or similar) topics each week. Each level has its own books, videos, projects, and recipes that are age-appropriate. Here are some ideas on how to use the levels family-style:

  • You may wish to read a book out loud to all your students. Older students may read easier books to some of the younger ones.
  • Everyone may wish to come together to watch some of the videos (preview for the younger students) and cook recipes together.
  • The whole family can work on crafts and projects together. Little ones can make crafts more suited to their abilities while the older kids work on ones more at their level.
  • You may want to have kids read books from across the book lists. Some of the kids on the “fringe” grades may benefit from a hybrid of two levels.
  • Everyone can participate in some of the assignments at their level. For example – when you are covering a particular topic (like the Gold Rush), a younger student may make a craft and write a few simple sentences about it. A 5th grader may create a poster advertising about the gold fields. Your high schooler may write a paper about how Chinese immigrants were treated in the gold rush cities that popped up.

We don’t have a scope and sequence written up, but you can get an idea of many of the topics covered by looking at the following items:

The list of topics for Little Kids’ Early American History is found in the FAQ on the product page and the chart below.

See the main topics for Jr. Early American History (and many for the high school level) by looking at the table of contents for Beowulf’s Big Book of Early American History and chart below.

Looking at the booklists for each will also help you see the many toipcs covered:

The chart below roughly lists the main topics for each week. Please note that every single topic, event, and person is NOT listed. These are just VERY general topics for each week (that barely scratch the surface). These are very rich curriculums, and it would be difficult to list all the people and events that are covered. When it comes to the Jr. and High School levels (especially the High School level), if you don’t see something that is commonly taught in U.S. history mentioned in the chart, it’s still likely covered. 😉
Some topics span across multiple weeks and that is not reflected in this chart (slavery, Native American studies/issues, etc.)

Note: There are a few sections in the high school level that don’t match the other two levels perfectly (like a book about the Alamo) due to timing differences in the spine book. The 3 levels still track as far as the main time period when this occurs.

Science topics in the Little Kids’ and Jr. levels are not listed here. See the individual curriculum product page FAQs for those topics.

You can keep your files forever, if you save your initial download!

Once you’ve downloaded the schedules to your computer or device, you are licensed to use the downloaded copies forever. Make sure you download, save, and back up your items immediately after your purchase! You can click directly on the links in the schedule from a computer or other device and can use your materials with younger students years later.

2 Years to Access Additional Downloads & the Online Schedule*

Additional downloads (after your initial purchase) and access to the online version of the schedule are provided as a courtesy and are not guaranteed due to various potential technical and business (and life!) circumstances. It is our intention to continue to provide access for a period of 2 years from the date of purchase. After the 2-year period, you will have the opportunity to repurchase your access at a substantial discount.

Please note, if you have problems, we have a liberal policy of providing extra, free access for unusual circumstances (at our discretion). Just contact us: guesthollow@memorableplaces.com.

*Access to the online version of the curriculum schedules and additional downloads is provided as a courtesy and is not guaranteed due to potential various circumstances on our end and yours including but not limited to various computer, device, and internet configurations.

Yes, on a case-by-case basis depending on the amount of paperwork they require and the bureaucracy that needs to be navigated. 😉

No, you may NOT resell, share, or distribute any of Guest Hollow’s digital products (or printed out copies of our digital products) which includes but is not limited to schedules, workbooks, printables, and other materials.

Our materials are licensed for a single family’s use only. You may print out as many copies as you reasonably need for siblings or others living in your home.

Please contact us if you wish to use our materials in a co-op or school: guesthollow@memorableplaces.com.

We are Christians, but Guest Hollow’s Early American History Curriculums are not intended to be a “Christian resource”. However, there may be infrequent (or what we consider to be) minor references, notes, or links to resources that mention Christian ideas, values, or sectarian topics even in our secular/non-religious/neutral curriculums.

All the books scheduled in Guest Hollow’s Early American History Curriculums are secular. If you want some Christian books to sub in or add, you can always check out the Big Bad Beautiful Booklist -History Edition for ideas!

Christians and non-Christians should preview the scheduled books and all other resources such as videos, etc. to make sure they are compatible with your beliefs, philosophies, and values.

After purchasing a curriculum, you’ll see that the item you just bought shows that it is discounted 50% in our store. The reason you are seeing this is because we give you the opportunity to repurchase the schedule and your downloads at a substantial discount before they expire (2 years from date of purchase).

Please note: You do NOT need to repurchase your schedule in order to use the files you originally purchased and downloaded. You can use your downloaded schedule forever and can click on the links just as you can the online version of the schedule. You just won’t have access to any updates after your online access expires.

Why does access expire? Every year we go through all our curriculum schedules and update broken links and/or replace books that have gone out of print. This is a very time-intensive process that keeps our curricula up-to-date. Your repurchase helps fund this process and provides you with a schedule that has all the new additions or changes.

You need to repurchase your access BEFORE it expires in order to get the 50% discount due to the way our “membership” software works. If for some reason you miss the deadline, let us know why. We may give you a coupon code for the 50% off at our discretion.

*It is our intention to provide access for a period of 2 years, however, access to the online version of the curriculum schedules and additional downloads is provided as a courtesy and is not guaranteed due to potential various circumstances on our end and yours including but not limited to various computer, device, and internet configurations.
