Culture of Life Curriculum Plan – Life Foundations Series

7th through 8th Grade

For some, the hardest part of pro-life education is figuring out how to fit it into an already busy schedule. As homeschool moms and teachers ourselves, we totally get that, so we’ve made it easy for you to see just where some of our lessons fit in. Appropriate subjects for each lesson are highlighted in red. You’ll note that most of our studies and lessons fit into multiple subjects.

Pro-life education is easier than you think!
