Curriculum for multi-level science/history etc.

I'll be teaching 3 three different grade levels in the fall (5th, 3rd, and two in 1st) and think it would be much easier and cheaper to be able to purchase one science, one history, etc. curriculum that I can adapt. I would like workbooks to go with it and suggested activities. Any suggestions?

Re: Curriculum for multi-level science/history etc.

I don't buy my curriculum right now but I do teach two children of different grade levels. For history I use www.lessonpathways.com It is free, just log in and assign whatever pathways you want to your children. I assigned everything 1st grade and up then organized them chronologically (because that is how I wanted to teach history) and now I teach my boys 1st and 4th grade together. I also sometimes use www.Mrdonn.org which is what we are actually doing right now (working on English history, Yay for Anglo Saxons). I tend to be obsessive about history.

For Science we are using http://www.eequalsmcq.com/ClassicScienceLife.htm we are using Life Science this year which is the free book and if we really like it we may pay for the other books.
http://science.lotsoflessons.com/index.html is another option for science

Sonlight and My Father's World would both fit that, except the workbook part--might not be what you're looking for at all.

I plan on using My Father's World as I've heard wonderful things about them interms of teaching multiple levels.

Re: Curriculum for multi-level science/history etc.

For science, you could use Apologia. Just use the junior notebooks for the younger two and the regular notebooks for the older two.

ScienceWorks or Dinah Zikes Great Science Adventures or Real Science4 Kids may work (at least for your two youngest).

And Story of The World would work with all three for history.

Re: Curriculum for multi-level science/history etc.

I was also going to suggest Apologia for science, but be aware that it is a Christian program and teaches from a Creationist POV.

For history, we like Truthquest. It is also from a Christian viewpoint. This one really only works well, though, if you have a good library system, as it gives some background and then you really flesh it out with books. She gives lists of recommended books for each topic, though, with age ranges.

I love Apologia for science and Story of the World for history if you want stand-alone programs.
