From Akebu to Zapotec

Akebu to ZapotecSonlight had a extra download in 2009 (It was called Core 1 Tips – but with the cores renamed and the website under change I am not sure how to find it Sad smile

I am going to provide the direct links that were given in the Sonlight download for this book.  Please note these link direct to the PDF’s – they were really hard to find and link to any other way.  I found these really good – I printed up the map for the kids to mark the country on and the info about the country I printed for me so I could share more about the people as we read about each one.  They are from www.vernacularmedia.org/  There was so much more we could have done with these lessons – but if we took every rabbit trail we would NEVER finish a core!!




Akebu people – supplemental lesson PDF

Brokpa People – supplemental lesson PDF

Chut People – supplemental lesson PDF   we read about these people after we had read some books about the Vietnam war, which made the people and the place seem a little bit more real and closer to home for us here in Australia.

Dongxiang People – supplemental lesson PDF

Elkei People – supplemental lesson PDF

Fania People – supplemental lesson PDF

Gusilay People – supplemental lesson PDF

Hrusso People – supplemental lesson PDF

We made a cover for our notebook which you can download from HS Launch here

There are prayer journals for your children to pray about some of the people they read about here at Wycliff.org (Lesson 7-8) the prayer cube (lesson 6) is a cool idea too.

There are pages here from Jjn3beans’s homeschool Launch Page (sorry I am not allowed to link direct to the downloads – but they are listed on the left side of the page)

This book made a HUGE impression on Duckie, she included the people in her prayers and reminded us to also pray for them. It never ceases to amaze me how different things appeal at different times, we have read the book before but this time for her it was so different.


  1. THANK YOU for posting the links to the Akebu to Zapotec peoples! I too was having a hard time finding them on the new website at Sonlight, and was just googling and googling till I could find the PDFs. This is very helpful!

  2. They are now found on what is called the Core Tips B, http://www.sonlight.com/BCD.html these CDs now come with the core packages or you can order them individually if you already have the Core curriculum. Thanks for posting this!!!!

  3. yes, thank you for posting this - i didn't know there was anything already put together and i was googling abeku to create my own supplements when i found this - very helpful! thank you.
