How much harder is ECC than Adventures? We have already done quite a lot of geography, so both of my children already have some foundational knowledge.Any thoughts?
It's my understanding that Adventures was developed because MFW families who had oldest children in 2nd grade did fine with ECC, but ran into trouble when starting the full history sequence so young. It's do-able (ask some of the families like Crystal who are still doing it), but most of them would advise you to take the gentler route. Adventures days are 2.5-3 hours, while days with ECC & up are about 4. And Adventures, by the way, is very gentle on the history -- no wars & such.
