    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.

    Hear it is! Weight know longer! This is won grate book that shouldn't bee mist! Seriously, this is a very helpful resource. The cover says it has "more homophones than you can shake a stick at." I don't know how many that is, but 101 sound-alike pairs and triples are covered in this book via grade-leveled worksheets and other activities. Worksheets have target homophones in large lettering on the top and ten fill-in-the-blank exercises The worksheets are intended as reinforcement; you should introduce the homophones and their correct usage before having students work them. There are also additional activities or fun facts at the bottom of each page plus an entire page of additional suggestions for using the sheets. A section of graphic organizer sheets can be used to illustrate (or paste pictures of) homophones and define them. This could even be part of your instruction process prior to having students work through the exercises. A section of homophone crossword puzzles is included following the worksheets. A table tells you when you can use each puzzle (the first can be completed after using the 2nd grade sheets). Six different homophone card games are provided, complete with cards to photocopy onto cardstock and/or laminate. A final section of More Homophone Tools contains a listing of books about or using homophones; My List of Homophones student sheets (for students to compile their own lists); tongue twisters; riddles; puns; answer keys for the worksheets and puzzles; and, finally, a mega-list of homophones (maybe more than you can shake a stick at). I think it's safe to say that this is the only homophone reference/resource book you'll ever knead!

    Two-sided paper poster has a world map on one side and tons of activities on the back. I would recommend getting 2 of these. It would be a bit troublesome to keep flipping over to the map side. First you are labeling the map (countries/oceans/equator, etc.) and also the hemispheres/ tropic lines/latitude/longitude and more. You will be learning about U.S. time zones, compass roses, types of maps and other map terms and uses. Sound like a lot for one poster? It is! A crossword puzzle is your reward for doing all the other work. The map is just paper, so you can use colored pencils or crayons to color your map. It comes rolled up and measures 17” x 22” ~ Sara

    While I already knew that Ellen McHenry has a talent for making complicated topics fun and understandable for middle schoolers, I was impressed all over again when I saw this study on the brain. I mean, it seems manageable to teach chemistry to kids, but neurology? Things can get complicated when you start following nerve pathways across and through the brain! However, I was relieved to see that you don't need to be a brain surgeon to teach this course. The book has two parts – a student booklet and a teacher's section, both of which include reproducibles that you can copy for your own family or one classroom. The student booklet is at the core of the course, and includes all of the text and text-based activities. There are ten topical chapters in the booklet, plus "half-chapters" that end in .5 and cover "extras" that you could choose to cover or skip, depending on your interest and time available. The chapters cover the history of brain research, basic brain anatomy, the right and left sides of the brain, the parts of the brain and their functions, brain cells, neurons, learning and memory, the brain's connection to the body, sleep and brain doctors. Each chapter includes several pages of friendly, straight-forward text on the topic, augmented by black-and-white graphics and the little fingerprint guys you might recognize from the author's chemistry programs. Several review activities are provided at the end of each chapter. These are quite wide-ranging in format, so much so that I'm just going to have to give you specific examples! For instance, in the first chapter on brain research, the first activity asks students to research different brain scans on the internet and answer question about each, then read to find out more about Phineas Gage (the strangest story in brain research!), and finally, students complete a color-by-number "PET Scan." In the chapter about brain parts and functions you'll find a crossword puzzle to complete, a diagram to color the parts of the brain, and "The Brain Song" to listen to, which is available as a download on the author's website. Other fun activities include making a 9-square puzzle of connected neurons and using the right and left sides of your brain to complete specific challenges. An answer key is provided at the end of the student portion, and contains all of the answers to activities with specific answers. The teacher's section is primarily made up of more involved, hands-on activities. These are organized by corresponding chapter and include fun ideas like making a brain "hemisphere hat" using the reproducible patterns that show the different areas of the brain, doing an MRI on an orange, making a human neuronal network, building an edible neuron, and much, much more. I was very impressed with the hands-on activities overall; they are very creative! This would be a very fun curriculum to use with a co-op, or with several of your children at one time. I would recommend finding some good text resources on the brain, as the visuals are a bit limited here, and there may be topics you'll want to read more about, but I think the content and the activities here will definitely capture children's interest! Packaged in a 3-hole, looseleaf format (no longer includes CD; all digital files are available on the author's website). – Jess

    You may not have time to work an entire newspaper-sized crossword puzzle every day. You may not want a page-a-day crossword calendar because you don't want to have one more thing to get behind on. Well, here's a low-pressure, calendar-format crossword-a-day solution! While there is a crossword for each day of the year, no date appears on the page. Just use them on days when you have a few minutes to spare, or get an urge to wake up your brain. They are small (usually 15-18 clues), but challenging enough to make you feel satisfied when you complete them. The not-quite 4½" x 4 ½'" cube will fit unobtrusively on your desk or nightstand.

    This activity book is full of mazes, word searches, crossword puzzles, and trivia about the 50 United States. States are grouped by regions (New England, Northeastern, Mid-Atlantic, Southeastern, Southern, Midwestern, Western, Southwestern, West Coast, and Non-Contiguous), and each region has one or two worksheets that provide fun puzzles about that area. Black and white illustrations with speech bubbles also share facts and statistics about that area. The information doesn't go into great detail about each state, but it does a good job of showing the highlights of each state and what they're most known for. In the middle of the book is a map of the United States with room to place a sticker on every state. Included is a two-page spread of 75 stickers. There are 50 license plate stickers which show how the plates look in full-color. These are great to put on the supplied map whenever you get a chance to visit each state. The other 25 stickers are also included, which feature famous monuments and other objects that kids can place wherever they want. A complete answer key for all the puzzle pages is included. The perfect book to bring along on those family road trips (or for some imagined traveling right at home). 24 pgs. ~ Rachel

    This unit study takes the hands-on, multi-disciplinary approach of Galloping the Globe and applies it to U.S. geography. This course is intended to teach students about the fifty states and the District of Columbia through six different subject areas and a couple of informational paragraphs. Each subject has a very state-specific application: geography – physical and topical forms located in the state; science – state trees, birds, flowers, rocks/minerals, and many other science related topics that are important to each state; language arts – based on the preamble for each state's constitution; history/biography – historical figures, leaders, authors, artists, and others connected to the state; literature – set in the states, written by an author from the state, or relating to some other aspect of the state; and Bible – using the motto for each state to help in character development. There are also mapping activities and hands-on projects for each state, as well as internet resources that may be useful. A CD-ROM accompanies the book, including over 150 reproducible outline maps, word searches, crossword puzzles, and other puzzles and activities to be used throughout the study. The appendix of the book also contains reproducible forms for character traits (character study and development being an important aspect of this course), state symbols, state science charts, order of statehood, state report, recipes for making maps, biography report, animal report, geography dictionary, state flag pledges, state notebook, and travel & tourism information. As far as teaching tips, the first section contains overviews and tips on each of the subject areas, suggestions for the general activities, website resources, a more detailed language arts guide, teacher preparation points, and ideas for adapting the course for use by older students. Cantering the Country can be adapted to take anywhere from 1 to 3 years. 255 pgs, pb. ~ Zach
