Blazers of Greatness
Guide with Curriculum suggestions for Elementary Ages 9 - 11

written and compiled by 
Katrina Lybbert

Blazers of Greatness is a guide to studying great heroes and heroines.  Our children will benefit from learning about those who have blazed paths to greatness.  They will see through these examples how they can do great things in their lives as well.  They will learn values and character and have role models to guide them.  While this guide is geared to 9 - 11 years, it can be a family focus and involve parents and children of all ages.

I have chosen to work with 18 different heroes and 18 different heroines.  This guide will last for a 36 week school year.  See the links below for more information.  You are welcome to choose different heroes and heroines.  Do not forget your own ancestors.  They can be heroes for your family.  If you have the resources and information, be sure to spend a few weeks on family heroes.

See my additional heroes and heroines' list for further study.  You can choose new heroes to learn about every year.  Your study can get more detailed as your children get older.  This is a lifetime pursuit to greatness.  Maybe one day your name will be on a heroes' list.
