Connect all your students to the same time period, and type of learning with the Paths of Exploration Middle School (Older Extension) Supplement.
The Older Extension provides guidance for older siblings who are also using the learning series. It extends the grade level for teaching Paths of Exploration up through middle school. Content follows along with the Paths of Exploration books but at a more challenging level that takes students deeper. The extension uses higher level literature books and provides additional reading assignments, grammar, research and reporting, and enrichment activities.
You can choose each unit individually or purchase all six units of Paths of Exploration Older Extension lessons. Lessons are PDF downloads for printing or viewing on your computer or tablet.
Please Note: These lessons were made for the first edition of Paths of Exploration. Many families have successfully used the first edition middle school supplement along with the second and third edition curriculum. They will not always match up perfectly, but are still able to be used together. We are working on an update but do not yet have a set date for its availability.
