Substitution Help

Post by BarcelonaRed » Sat Feb 18, 2017 2:32 pm

I am looking at the Creation to Christ package for a 10 year old boy.

However, I need some advise about a few substitutions. He is currently reading Beechik's Genesis and Plant Life. He also read Galen this year. I like this particular curriculum because I would like to continue on with history from Genesis. Would his history studies be lacking if we just omitted this title or do you have another recommendation?

What would your recommendations be for Science?

Am I trying too hard to make something work that he has already covered?

Thanks in advance.

Which history title has he already read and studied? I see Galen listed under science...

History would definitely not be lacking if you don't use the Genesis title. There is still plenty of science without those two books that he has read. Also, by the time he gets to those books in the curriculum, it wouldn't hurt at all to read them again. I know that I need to read things more than once. :)

Thank you. Good to know.
