The Good and the Beautiful Supplement for Classical Conversations Cycle 3
Here is a week by week list of The Good and the Beautiful History to pair with your Classical Conversations Cycle 3 history learning. I have also made posts for CC Cycle 1 and CC Cycle 2.
We love the Classical Conversations History Memory Work, but have found that we have needed some direction for our weeks, something to make the history sentences come to life! The Good and the Beautiful History Curriculum has done an amazing job at combining beautiful, living texts with primary sources such as maps and pictures of artifacts. We like to read the text and do our Charlotte Mason narrations as well as listen to the included audio recordings to further make history come aline! It’s all so well done!
Each of the four years of history in The Good and the Beautiful history curriculum goes through four different time periods of world history. So unfortunately, you’d have to invest in all four years to fully use them for the Classical Conversations history. But they are very inexpensive, in terms of curriculum costs. Each year includes a Lesson Guide ($35 each) and either a Big Book of Stories with Images and Maps (~$24, Years 1 & 3) or just Images and Maps ($13, Years 2 & 4). Each year also has a fun board game available for purchase. We have liked Year One’s game most of all. You can also buy a “Timeline” for Years 2, 3, & 4 which we haven’t used, as we have focused on the Classical Conversations Timeline.
If you can purchase all four years, I believe they are a great investment! The game are also very fun for the kids! The Bill of Rights Game of course works perfectly for Classical Conversations Cycle 3!
If you’re looking for more ideas on how to make your Classical Conversations Cycle 3 history sentences come alive, check out my CC Cycle 3 Living Books List as well as my Spine Books for CC Cycle 3.
I’ve also made a list of CC Cycle 3 books from PaperPie that fit perfectly with history, science, as well as math, art, music and language arts!
