A Beka 8th Grade History Worksheets


07 Jan

America, Land I Love

 

If you’re using A Beka’s 8th grade history book, America, Land I Love, and are looking for worksheets, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve created a page and uploaded the files I’ve created for the book. These are like the sections at the end of each chapter, but done as worksheets for easy reference. There are the Review sheets for each chapter, which list the important places, people, and dates. I’ve also included a Terms section for each chapter, so the definition and information for each set of chapter terms can be filled in. You can find these files on the A Beka – America, Land I Love page.

Curriculum – 8th Grade


05 Jun

Well, 7th grade is over, and 8th starts in a month! Yikes. I am way behind in ordering and figuring out curriculum this year, but I’ve finally got everything taken care of. Whew! I can relax…briefly. So, here it is:

Spelling: A Beka’s Vocabulary, Spelling, Language II

Writing: Benjamin Franklin Writing Method from SchoolhouseTeachers.com

Math: The second half of Saxon Algebra 2

Science: Earth Science using Glencoe Earth Science: Geology, The Environment, and The Universe, AND McDougal Littell Earth Science  I bought both used, and I found a high school teacher that posted all his labs online and will choose which of those I’ll use.

Bible: Lightbearers Curriculum from Summit Ministries

Spanish: Lessons from the Homeschool Spanish Academy

Social Studies/History: His California Story: In Christian Perspective (for CA history), and A Beka’s America: Land I Love

Physical Education: This will be a variety of physical activities, including local PE classes, swimming and bike riding, and other activities that come up throughout the year.

Health: Total Health, Middle School by Susan Boe, and A Beka’s Sex, Love, and Romance

Music: We’re looking into the possibility of drum lessons.

Art & Home Skills: Art classes will be here and there as we find things my son likes. We will be going through this book though to do a bit of review and some exposure to artists my son hasn’t studied yet: A Child’s Introduction to Art : The World’s Greatest Paintings and Sculptures . Home Skills will occur through everyday tasks, along with outside classes (he wants to be a chef, so we’re looking into the various opportunities that are available for that), as well as guidance from an e-book we purchased on home skills for boys.

**We will no longer be doing grammar,  or a formal study of Latin/Greek roots.
