History and Geography LIFEPAC Curriculum

See the general information about Alpha Omega's LIFEPAC curriculum under "Grade Level Packages." You need to check for correct placement level before using Alpha Omega curriculum, in this instance considering both level of difficulty and topic. Even if your child functions at a fifth grade level, you should be choosing a history course that fits in with your past and future historical coverage. (Note: Alpha Omega has diagnostic tests to place students in their curriculum.)

The complete set for each grade level includes ten LIFEPACs and a teacher's guide with answer keys and teacher helps.

I do not recommend this curriculum for younger grade levels, since I believe that history studies with younger children should be much more interactive with read aloud books and discussion rather than independent work.

Topics for upper elementary grades through high school:

LIFEPAC courses for grades six through ten have been reformatted, and some updating has been done. However, some of these courses don't seem to have been rewritten or thoroughly updated for many years, even if they have been reformatted. Many retain copyrights from the 1990s. For example, Unit 7 of History and Geography for Grade 6 has been heavily rewritten since it covers modern-day Africa which has undergone tremendous political upheavals. On the other hand, the world history course for tenth grade (copyright 1997) summarizes the war in Iraq from only after Saddam Hussein's fall with the statement, "A fledgling democracy has taken hold but violence repeatedly disrupts the work of the new leaders." (Unit 10, p. 68). LIFEPACs were almost certainly written by different authors over many years, so the style of writing varies. Some courses are more engaging than others.
