Teaching History with the Torchlighters Video Series

Share

Teaching history with the Torchlighter's video series is incredibly easy because they have done most of the work for you! The series features stories of great heroes and heroines from throughout history in a 30 minute animated program.  Suggested for ages 8-12, but I have learned a lot from these videos as well.

What is the Torchlighter's Series?


Per the publisher's description:

The Torchlighters video series offers children real heroes they can depend on. These heroes have lived truly great lives marked by moral depth, strength of character, and an unwavering commitment to Christ. By sharing in their struggles and small steps of obedience, we are all challenged to live lives of faith. It is our sincere desire that as children get to know these "torchlighters," they will be challenged to follow in the footsteps of the greatest torchlighter of them all, Jesus Christ.

The series includes seventeen titles with more planned in the future.

 

Teaching History With Them


In our homeschool, we used the series as a one-semester overview of history. We watched one video each week, typically on Monday, then followed up with lots of activities and learning throughout the week.

I've provided the videos and resources here in chronological order, but you could use them in any order you wish, as a supplement to your history curriculum, or even as a Bible course!

If you'd like to dive deeper into the educational value of each video then you'll want to check out the free leader guides and student workbooks offered by the publisher of the series. These are professionally created guides and workbooks with very well developed lessons. Though they are written for a classroom setting it is very easy to tweak the lessons for a smaller group or even one child.
