Welcome to Living History Threads, level 3|4!

Level 3|4 is intended for use in third- and fourth-grade classrooms. Most schools combine these grades for history class and teach Levels 3|4 and 4|3 in alternating years, but Threads also works well in single-grade classrooms. Level 3|4 is designed for 40-minute class periods, four days per week for 32 weeks. The following materials are needed:

    • Teacher Guide x 1
    • Classroom picture and map set x 1
    • Timeline (shared with Level 4|3) x 1
    • Anthology of stories x 1
    • Fifty-five read-aloud books (1 copy of each title)
    • Student booklets (4 booklets, 1 per student)
    • Student desk maps (one per student)

The primary modes of student engagement in Level 3|4 are attentive listening, oral question and answer, and recitations. Most units also include a test for formal assessment.

I loved seeing elementary students excited about the heroes of the faith, and how the curriculum put our church history in a way they could understand. 



“All my students vote Living History as their favorite class – thanks to the Living History Threads curriculum. They love the stories! The history facts seem to be riveted in their minds better with this style of curriculum.
