Possessing The Land {Review}

Disclosure: I received this complementary product through the Homeschool Review Crew

If you are looking for a homeschool Bible curriculum for your middle school student, check out 5th Grade – Possessing the Land from Positive Action Bible Curriculum.

We were blessed with the Teacher Manual and one Student Manual, and since my boys so enjoyed previous curriculum from this company I went ahead and purchased a second student book so that they could both do this review.

I very much like this company! Upon research of the company’s doctrinal statement, I discovered that it lines right up with our beliefs. I also appreciate that when the student is directed to look up scripture, they are given the reference as opposed to having it directly written out. I am happy about this for two reasons. One, because we use only the King James Version of The Bible, and it makes is difficult when the student is asked to copy a written out verse from a different version. We don’t often find curricula which uses only the KJV. Two, having just the reference forces the student to actually look up the scripture, which I would much rather that they do.

With 35 lessons, Possessing the Land is intended to be a one school year curriculum covering God’s love and care for His people throughout the Old Testamant. Your student(s) will cover the following lessons:

  • The Word of God
  • Sin and Redemtion
  • Abraham, Sarah, and Isaac
  • Jacob and Esau
  • The Trials of Joseph
  • The Mercy of Joseph
  • Israel in Bondage
  • The Exodus from Egypt
  • The Law of God
  • Our Holy God
  • God Guides His People
  • Moses’ Final Charge
  • Entering the Land
  • Conflict in Canaan
  • Judging Israel
  • The Story of Ruth
  • The Last Judge of Israel
  • The First King of Israel
  • The Loyalty of David
  • The Reign of David
  • The Reign of Solomon
  • Elijah and Elisha
  • Ezra the Teacher
  • Neemiah the Organizer
  • Queen Ester
  • The Suffering of Job
  • Songs of Praise
  • Wisdom and Vanity
  • Three Prophets
  • Daniel’s Discipline
  • Daniel’s Devotion
  • The Prophet Who Ran
  • The Minor Prophets

There are also review chapters, Hymn lyrics, and scripture memory sections, along with reproduceable quizzes for each lesson.

Here are some pictures of some of the lessons my boys were working through:

My Teacher Manual came in a very sturdy 3-ring binder, and is very easy to use. At the beginning, there are pages of teaching material, then there are teacher coyies of every student page with the answers on them as you can see below. After the teacher pages there is a section of reproduceable quizzes, one of hymn lyrics, and scripture memory.

The Batman and The Artist have been really enjoying working through  5th Grade – Possessing the Land. In fact, The Batman who is my older, special needs guy, said one day while working through a lesson “This is really FUN, Mom!” That is just one of the reasons why I’ve felt blessed to receive another curriculum from Positive Action. You can read my review of the previous curriculum here.
