Level 4 Social Studies PACE 1044: Learning About China, Its Language, Hudson Taylor and Being Patient

 - by admin

To give you an idea how we go about our homeschooling, here are a few of things that you will find in the curriculum that we use, particularly, Level 4 Social Studies PACE 1044. It’s the 8th of a series of 12 PACES for each subject of a Level 4 Student using this particular homeshcooling curicculum.

Included in our homeschooler’s Level 4 Social Studies’s goals are:

  • To write the answers in cursive
  • To learn about Hudson Taylor, a missionary in China
  • To learn some things about China
  • To learn to accept whatever happens as God’s best for me – to be patient.

Scripture Verse for this PACE:

“Run with patience the race… set before us.” Hebrews 12:1

One of the things that I especially appreciate about the School of Tomorrow curriculum is how it incorporates in a student’s goals values and Bible verse in each PACE.  The above goals are written on the first page of the PACE.
