One Great Story
One of the Great Lessons is The Coming of the Universe. This story provides context and shows relationships between states of matter, physical sciences, earth sciences, astronomy and more. Key lessons in each of these areas follow over the course of the year. With the telling of the story the children realize their own picture of how all these lessons fit together. This enables them to more rapidly master and apply each concept to the next.
Other stories provide context for critical (and required) areas of study: from topics like math (multiplication, division, squaring, cubing, etc.) and language (parts of speech, sentence structure, creative writing, etc.) to science (natural and physical), art and music, and more.
