It's really amazing to teach this curriculum to students and watch them go from sheer boredom with the whole idea of school, to a very strong interest in learning in a short period of time.  I've also seen new students become much more outgoing from having both a safe environment to learn in and subjects that are not only very interesting, but easily learned and applied."  M.H., first teacher in a model Steps school
The third history course for Step 3 students, ages 9-10 who read fairly well, and older students still developing literacy.  The student discover the world's first civilization, Mesopotamia. They also explore elements of the Old Testament, with the story of Moses, savior of the Jewish People, and bearer of the Ten Commandments.

As with all of our history courses, tests and answer guides are included. This course uses the first Newberry Award winning book, The Story of Mankind, by Van Loon, and the excerpts from the book required for this course are included in the course. You won’t need the book.

The course specializes, as do all Steps courses, in developing the students understandings and ability to think and form their own ideas and opinions. Additionally, as with all our history courses, this one is structured to increase the student’s vocabulary and understanding of geography, as well as of history.

37 lesson plans, one test and answer guide.  40-55 hours of study.

Subjects covered in this course include:

  • Mesopotamia
  • The Tigris and the Euphrates Rivers
  • Sumer
  • The first writing, Cuneiform
  • Wars for control of the area
  • Mesopotamian Art
  • The end of Mesopotamian power
  • The Hebrews
