Teach America’s History using Primary Curriculum Resources



There is a campaign to rewrite America’s history, but we can take our children back to the beginning and teach from primary resources using our curriculum guides that trace the providential hand of God in America’s founding. It is written for grades K–12 in a clear and concise way that will draw your students in to see their own relationship to Christianity, to America, and to put into practice their own Christian self-government and liberty under law. Get started with our primary resource curriculum guides, which direct your teaching and learning from our seminal volumes, and then add supplementary titles for more in-depth study.

The Noah Plan® History and Geography Curriculum Guide

  • Complete planning manual for all grades using the Principle Approach
  • Scope and sequence charts for each grade level K–12

“From grade overviews to Biblical foundations and principles, quarterly content, lesson plan ideas, to everything you need for a complete history and geography class—it’s all here!” —M.L., homeschool parent

Helping People Everywhere Live God’s Word

Take your child on a walk through the Bible!

Walk Thru the Bible’s OT39 Flashcards and NT27 Flashcards sets are an innovative, memorable, and FUN way to learn the “big ideas” of the Old or New Testament! Eye-catching graphics filled with lots of hidden keys help unlock the big ideas, major themes, important people, and events of each book—from Genesis to Malachi, from Matthew to Revelation.

Each set of flashcards comes with one card for each book of the Old or New Testament. Side 1 of each card is a colorful illustration that shows the major theme (or keyword) of each book of the Old or New Testament. Side 2 of each card details the big idea and the overview of the book.

Once each clue is discovered and the key to the visuals is learned, your child will be able to describe with incredible detail the major theme of each book, the important people, places, and events in each book, and the big picture of the Old or New Testament. Use the cards as a game, as fill-in-the-blanks, as a memory tool, and more!

It’s a fun way to teach and learn the big picture of Scripture, and best of all, you’ll be amazed at how much they’ll remember for years to come!
