Would it be too overwhelming to do both history tracks in 4th grade - LoOL and Famous Men? Or, would it be too redundant?

I did LoOL as my main text and did Famous Men as a read-a-loud with no daily work or testing on Famous Men.

If you are looking to supplement history, then great! As long as other core subjects aren't suffering of course!

I am doing the same thing. Using LOL as the main and just reading through the stories in FMG. I do look at some of the questions in the FMG Teacher's Guide and read the answers to some of the questions aloud as a review for that story. We are not going to be taking our time writing down the names of gods and godesses. I do not think it is a good use of our time to do that. I think a general introduction is good at this point and pointing out the relevance of the similarities in all the stories to stories or lessons in the Bible. I think that the Greeks were still living in a culture surrounded by people not believing in the one true God, so they had to make up stories to explain the existence of everything as well as explaining how their special gifts and talents were developed.
