Veritas Press Self-Paced History Review

Veritas Press is a fantastic curriculum company that believes in classical Christian education. They offer curriculum and an online curriculum with the goal of helping our children reach their God-given potential. I was recently given the opportunity to review their Veritas Press Self-Paced History online curriculum with my son who absolutely LOVES history! Specifically, we received a year's access to the online Veritas Press Self-Paced History: 1815 to Present and the physical flashcards that go with it. The recommended ages for the online Self-Paced History program are grades 2nd through 6th.

How We Used Self-Paced History: 1815 to Present

We used this self-paced history program 4 days a week in our homeschool. My son was instantly captured by the live lessons presented by his "teachers" Eva and Marcus. I have to admit, I was captured too! We watched the lessons together and when it was time for the worksheet, Caleb had no problem recollecting the information to score 100% on his worksheet.

Sprinkled throughout the lessons are interactive activities such as puzzles, maps, games, matching activities, or a spelling game. There is also a catchy memory song that lists all 32 historical events in chronological order to help memorize them. Caleb had fun with all of these offerings that are included with Self-Paced History: 1815 to Present! 

The flashcards are beautifully made and contain all the information relating to the 32 events that are covered in Self-Paced History: 1815 to Present. I'll be buying a 3-ring binder with protective sleeves to keep our flashcards in so they will not get messed up. These flashcards can be used to complete the worksheets included in the daily lessons if your student has trouble remembering an answer to a question.

Our Opinion of Self-Paced History: 1815 to Present

We absolutely love Veritas Press Self-Paced History: 1815 to Present! Caleb was not bored at all with his lessons, and I was relieved to have finally found something that captured his attention in a subject he really loves.
