“Kids can’t stop reading ’em!” And that’s why the Trailblazer Books have sold over 1.8 million copies, especially among homeschoolers, ages 8-12. These award-winning classics are action-packed historical fiction novels introducing great Christian heroes. Each page-turning adventure portrays a significant period in a hero or heroine’s life and ministry as seen through the eyes of a young protagonist. A page in the front of each book explains exactly what is fiction and which events and characters are historical, and a “More About” chapter at the end provides a brief biographical overview of the hero’s life. Authors Dave and Neta Jackson wanted kids to learn about pioneer missionaries and other important Christians around the world . . . and have fun doing it. Even reluctant boys end up asking for more.
Get started with this Freebie which includes two Trailblazer Books in three digital formats (ePub, Kindle, and PDF)—plus 8 Curriculum Guides (PDF) that feature geography, history, social studies, literature, language arts, and church history related to the setting of each respective Trailblazer Book.
These Curriculum Guides put a host of activities and resources at your fingertips to help launch your students on a journey of discovery. The wealth of options allows you to choose the best pace and content for your students. You might want to assign students to simply read the book and then do one or two projects on folklore or food, travel or topography. Or you can delve deeper, planning a two-week unit with daily reading and vocabulary, research, creative writing, and hands-on projects. Of course, as with all good teaching, advance planning is key to effective use of the guides.
Each guide includes seven lessons, enough for a two-week unit. The first and last lessons cover one chapter and provide historical background; all other lessons cover two chapters. All lessons include vocabulary, background information, discussion questions, and suggested activities. Activities are grouped by subject matter in the back of each guide: Geography, History, Social Studies and Folkways, and Literature and Language Arts.
