    Retail: $1.99
    Rainbow Price: $1.76

    A safe, plastic compass (no sharp points, made with SAFE-T plastic) that lays flat on your paper. Held in place with one finger while you insert a pen or other writing implement in a drawing guide hole. It's called a Bullseye compass because of the Direct View compass point which allows you to exactly place the center of the circle at any point. A sliding radius indicator lets you select radius in metric or standard units. Holes in the indicator that line up with the arrows provide extremely accurate construction. The compass also has a built-in protractor for measuring and constructing angles and the radius arm doubles as a ruler with both standard and metric markings.

  • Item #: 036400
    Retail: $0.00
    Rainbow Price: $2.15

       One of my biggest complaints with a compass is that the legs don’t hold in place while you are trying to complete a circle. This inexpensive yet sturdy plastic compass by Maped Helix takes away that frustration. The compass tip is retractable for safety and a twist-lock holds the compass legs firmly in position. Although this comes with a little pencil, it will work with any standard pencil or pen and measurements are in cm and inches. ~ Donna

    This book is now in 2nd ed. and chapters include What is Astronomy, The Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, The Moon, Mars, Space Rocks, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Kuiper Belt and the Dwarf Planets, and Stars, Galaxies, and Space Travel. The last few chapters are where you see a change in the chapter sequence from the first edition – chapters 11 and through 14. There are still interesting activities and projects including a model solar system made of balloons, pinhole eclipse viewing box, making a compass, understanding the moon phases, and creating an astrometer. Children are sure to remember the information they are learning between hearing the text, performing the hands-on activities, and completing the journal pages.

    The text is formatted differently from first edition – it begins with an explanation of the text, activities, course website, notebooking journals, and science kit in clear bold print. Each lesson is full of new photography and illustrations and interspersed with scripture. Blue “Think about this” and “Wisdom from Above” boxes give special attention to the Creator, and orange questions are scattered throughout the lessons for students to think about and explain. Activities for each lesson include instructions and illustrations for completion. Every chapter is rounded out with “What do you Remember?” where students recall information from the lesson. The appendices include a lesson-by-lesson supply list for hands-on activities and an answer key for “What do you Remember?” questions.

    Notebooking journals are now in full color and color-coordinated. A suggested schedule is in the front of each notebooking journal, but you decide how many times a week to do your curriculum. The schedule lists daily assignments (71 total), and the lists have items listed in 3 different colors – green for textbook reading assignments, blue for notebook assignments, and brown for science kit activities. Pages in the notebooking journal are formatted for students to answer questions and complete activities. A review of the inner planets now follows lesson 8, review of the outer planets follows lesson 12, and a final review follows lesson 14. “Take it Further” pages are now drawing, making lists of books you’ve read, movies you’ve watched, additional experiments you may have completed, and making scrapbooking pages. Copywork is still included and coloring pages in the junior notebooking journals. There are answer keys in the back for vocabulary crossword puzzles and final review questions.

    Because of the content changes, first edition products won’t work with the 2nd edition. Experiments are different (four of them are unchanged), so lab supplies do vary as well.

    The good news is that, as Christians, we know how the story turns out - we win! The bad news is that, as Christians, we often have trials, some very unpleasant, along the way. Trial and Triumph: Stories from Church History presents 46 gripping stories of brothers and sisters in Christ who stood firm in the face of bitter persecution. The brief four to five page biographies of such greats as Polycarp, Tyndale, Luther, Calvin, William Carey and Hudson Taylor show what God can do through ordinary people who trust and obey Him. It is inspiring to read of these men and women who defied ungodly authority, whether in the church or in civil government, and stood on the Word of God.

    Polycarp was a leader in the early Christian church at Smyrna during a time of Roman persecution. When he was seized, Polycarp was told to swear an oath to Caesar or he would be fed to the lions; but he refused. He was told to swear an oath to Caesar or he would be burned at the stake; but he refused. As the flames were about to end his earthly life, he shouted out a prayer of praise to the Lord.

    Elizabeth was the beautiful daughter of the king of Hungary. She was filled with compassion for her people during a time of great famine. Against the wishes of the royal advisors, she emptied the grain bins and personally gave clothing and meals to the poor. After the death of her husband, Elizabeth was put out on the street. She continued to praise God for allowing her to serve the poor and began spinning wool to earn a living. When her father found out about her circumstances, he begged her to come back and share in his inheritance. But Elizabeth said that she had already received her inheritance from her Father in heaven, the eternal mercy of her Lord Jesus Christ. She served the poor until her death from a fever at age 24.

    This book is excellent material for family reading or individual inspiration. - Jerry
