Pennsylvania Keystones State History Curriculum Grades 4-6

Print Friendly

Pennsylvania Keystones by Susan Kemmerer meets all legal requirements for teaching Pennsylvania state history to your home school students and introduces them to great, godly men. God’s providence is evident all through the history of this great story. True stories will encourage your student in his/her Christian faith as well as challenge him in his walk with God. Your student will do map studies, timelines, nature studies, and creative writing and create a keepsake notebook, which introduces him to government, geography, industry and agriculture, flora and fauna, etc. Flexible enough to use with one or more students.

Use as a full year history/literature course or a weekly supplement to your current studies.

The Light in the Forest

The Light in the Forest

By Conrad Richter

ISBN-13: 9781400077885

“When John Cameron Butler was a child, he was captured in a raid on the Pennsylvania frontier and adopted by the great warrior Cuyloga. Renamed True Son, he came to think of himself as fully Indian. But eleven years later his tribe, the Lenni Lenape, has signed a treaty with the white men and agreed to return their captives, including fifteen-year-old True Son. Now he must go back to the family he has forgotten, whose language is no longer his, and whose ways of dress and behavior are as strange to him as the ways of the forest are to them. A beautifully written, sensitively told story of a white boy brought up by Indians, The Light in the Forest is a beloved American classic.”
