If you own an older edition of Creation to the Greeks, consider upgrading to the current edition. The core of the program has not changed, but several books have been revised or replaced.
* In 2014, Genesis for Kids was replaced by Science in the Beginning. We highly recommend this new book since it provides excellent experiments along with wonderful pictures and information for 2nd-6th graders. Our recommended Book Basket library list was also updated.
* In 2016, Streams of Civilization and Dinosaurs of Eden were revised with new color illustrations and minor text edits.
You may exchange your Creation to the Greeks Teacher's Manual for the current edition. Please call our office at 573-202-2000 to request the upgrade exchange; we'll explain how to return your Teacher's Manual to our office.
If you prefer to use your older Teacher's Manual with Science in the Beginning, refer to this lesson schedule. It doesn't include weekly materials lists for science experiments. http://www.mfwbooks.com/downloads/pdfs/ ... hedule.pdf

Additional information summarized from Message Board conversations over the years:
1. Teacher's Manual: In 2010, Second Editions added Student Sheets rather than copying from the appendix and from other materials. In 2014, Teacher's Manual covers were changed to reflect the Discover/Investigate/Declare stages. Print dates will give you the best idea of whether the page numbers in your Manual will match the page numbers in various books used in CTG which may be changed by publishers at various times.
2. Student Sheets: Current Student Sheets work with all previous editions of CTG.
3. Streams of Civilization: 3rd edition came out in 2016.
4. Dinosaurs of Eden was revised in 2016.
5. Science in the Beginning: Replaced Genesis For Kids in 2014. This is a completely new text by Jay Wile, but similarly arranges science topics around the days of creation. The new science program has received rave reviews and makes an upgrade a valuable option. The science book basket list was also updated.
The MFW website offers a PDF for using this book with an older manual. http://www.mfwbooks.com/downloads/pdfs/ ... hedule.pdf . Also...
6. Archimedes: This book was moved to Book Basket (and is available as an Enrichment item), also in 2014.
7. The David C. Cook Journey through the Bible: Previously called Victor Journey Through the Bible. Page numbers remained the same. Changed around 2011.
MFW FAQ wrote:What are the changes to Journey through the Bible? The Victor Journey through the Bible is now The David C. Cook Journey through the Bible. All of the pages and content are the same. The Teacher's Manuals can be used without any changes. Whenever Victor is referenced, you can use The David C. Cook Journey through the Bible instead.
8. God and the History of Art: This went from 1-volume, plastic spiral, paper cover to 2-volume, bound books around 2008. The content appears to be the same, with a few word changes.

9. The Children's Homer: Cover and paper changes around 2008.
10. Celebrate the Feasts: Previously called Celebrating Biblical Feasts around 2008.
11. Pyramids: This is now softcover, with a red cover, since around 2008.
12. Fast Facts was included in all Investigate packages at first. Now, families typically get that resource in ECC.
Disclaimer: It's always easiest to get a package that was all sold together by MFW at the same time, so page numbers match and titles are clear. However, it typically isn't too much work to do it other ways.
