Missions to Modern Marvels: Teacher’s Guide

This gem of a guide has 35 weeks of ‘open and go’ 4-day plans that are each shown on a 2-page spread. This guide is ideally targeted for students in grades 7-8, but students in grades 9-10 may use it with extensions. Simple daily plans organized into boxed format let you see at a glance what you’ll be doing each day and make teaching ultra-easy by noting whether plans are “teacher-directed”, “semi-independent”, or “independent”. This “boxed-style” of plans makes it simple to do school all in one sitting, or divide it by spacing out the boxes of plans throughout the day.

Missions to Modern Marvels is written with busy homeschool teachers in mind, so each day of plans takes only about 4 ½ – 5 hours, and subjects can be spaced as desired throughout the day. Guides just don’t come as organized and easy-to-use as Missions to Modern Marvels does!

The Missions to Modern Marvels guide includes:

  • History & Presidents’ Study
  • Read-Alouds
  • Geography
  • Bible & Hymns
  • Economics
  • Nature Journal & Poetry
  • Literature
  • Grammar, Writing & Spelling
  • Math
  • Science


Each day of plans addresses both academic and spiritual needs, making sure not to neglect either area. Plans set forth clear guidance in what to expect of your student each day and are written with a balanced approach to learning. The guide uses narrative books as the core of the student’s education to cover needed academics in a living, engaging manner.
