    Unlike math or reading, geography may be one of those subjects studied intermittently, or even as one concentrated course, not something we hit every day, and this can make memorizing places and names difficult for those students not so good at memorization. Similar to the other Daily Warm-Ups books, each page is a mini-lesson that can be completed at any odd time of the day, and gives the student just a little taste of the subject on a daily basis. Activities include matching, true/false, charts and graphs, reading comprehension, riddles, and more. Not a comprehensive study of world geography by any means, but an easy way to keep the kids sharp, and keep them thinking about geography all year long. - Jess

    Following the same great format as Trail Guide to World Geography (see description), this book focuses on U.S. Geography. This trail guide includes 5-minute daily drills, mapping, building a geography notebook--or using the optional student notebook--and a wide variety of additional projects. The literature unit in this book focuses on the Lewis and Clark expedition, using the book The Captain's Dog, by Roland Smith. Heavily used resources include the Uncle Josh's Outline Map Book or maps available on the Student Notebook CD. Other resources are also recommended to help enhance the study; these are listed below for your convenience. In this edition, all students use the Desk Atlas of the United States. A Geographical Terms Chart is recommended with these and all Trail Guide studies. We do not offer the chart that is recommended; however, it is available through Geography Matters. This Trail Guide was revised and updated in 2015 and includes a new QuickStart Section and new assignments throughout. Please note: students must use 2ed of Student Notebook with this edition. ~ Rachel S.

    I am excited that Ray and Charlene Notgrass have written this excellent, one year world history course! While many families enjoy a chronological, multi-year approach to world history, others prefer to study history in a more traditional manner-one year at a time. Written in the engaging narrative ‘voice’ that has made the Notgrass courses beloved by many homeschool families, this new World History begins at the very foundation of our Christian foundation- Adam and journeys to the end of the 20th century, with a final unit on our interconnected world (from the thrill of world-wide sporting events to turmoil in the Middle East).

    Containing 30 units, with 5 lessons per unit, this course will take students one year to complete. It is anticipated that daily lessons will take 45-90 minutes per day, although it is naturally flexible for homeschool families to set their own pace. While the target grade range is 5 through 8, families with younger children will find this a perfect ‘read aloud’ curriculum, as the text has been clearly and engagingly written.

    Let me give a bit of an example of how the unit lessons are laid out. At the start of each unit, there is a brief introduction to the lessons including the recommended literature selection to accompany the reading. Each weekly unit has one lesson from each of five categories: Our World Story (major events in history); God’s Wonders (impact of the world’s created wonders on history and culture); World Landmarks; World Biography of some of history’s most influential personalities and Daily Life (an inside view of everyday life). Daily lessons are richly illustrated with graphics and photographs, including maps of historic places and regions. At the conclusion of each lesson (approximately 5-8 pages), parents and children will select assignments to complete from a list of 5-7 assignments. Older students may be able to complete all the activities-but again- there is built-in flexibility for your individual family’s needs. Assignments include readings from the Our Creative World book (collection of original documents); Map Book assignments; Timeline Book assignments; assignments from the Student Workbook and Lesson Review Book (optional resources), as well as language arts assignments covering vocabulary, creative writing, literature selections. Thinking Biblically assignments are also included with most lessons and are designed to engage students in applying Scripture to history and life. Each unit also provides a suggested weekly family activity-projects vary and include arts and crafts, recipes and games. Materials are easily found for the projects and are designed to bring the family together to enjoy time together building memories.

    Curriculum package contains From Adam to Us Part 1 & 2; Our Creative World, Map Book, Timeline Book and the Answer Key to end of the lessons questions as well as the activities and tests in the Student Workbook and the questions and tests in the Lesson Review. Although it is possible to share the Map and Timeline books, they are available separately, allowing each child to have their own copy. I suspect that most children will be eager to create their own map and timeline.

    If you would like to add more supplemental instruction or review, consider the Student Workbook (5th-6th grade) or the Lesson Review (7th-8th grades). Both include additional assignments that correspond to the daily lesson as well as unit tests and questions related to the literature selections. Most literature based questions are recall based. However, there are a smattering of higher level thinking questions.

    Middle school children will be enthralled as they view world history through the lens of a Creator God who is alive and active, from the very foundation of our world through present day. ~ Deanne

     Wordlessly follow the Yellow River’s path, gazing at the grandeur and peering in at Anno’s elaborate and diminutive illustrations. Concentrate on the colossal like Xian’s terra cotta soldiers or the Great Wall. Marvel at minutiae like calligraphers and peasants in their daily activities or ducks herded on the river. A feast for your eyes and mind! 10” x 9”, 60 pg, sc.

    This book is unique in that it gives children a “snapshot” view of 43 children from around the world. The children live in places as diverse as New Jersey, Mongolia, and Argentina. Children from industrialized countries, developing nations, busy cities, rural communities, tribal cultures, and more are included. The book is divided roughly by continent (North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Southeast Asia/Australasia), and then unique children from each region get a one or two-page spread to tell about their lives. The children are all shown with their families. Although most have traditional family situations, the book was updated in 2016, and there are now several single-parent families, a divorced couple, a polygamist family (p. 42), and one child’s sister is noted as having a wife (p. 14). The book includes tons of photographs and shows and describes their family, home, clothes, prized possessions, food, friends, favorite games, chores, and other aspects of their daily life. Most of the information is given in the captions of the photos and an intro about how old the child is, where they live, and how the family supports itself. The kids are 6-11 years old, and while they have a large variety of backgrounds, beliefs, and cultures, it is interesting to see how much they have in common. 3-11 children are included from every region. 80 pgs, hc.  ~ Rachel

    In the year 1285, eleven-year-old Toby is sent to be a page in his uncle's castle. While he's there, he records everything that happens to him so he can be sure to share it all with his mother. He writes about everything from hunts and tournaments to baking bread and cleaning out toilets. Read about his daily routines and exciting adventures from his point of view. The diary-like writing is accompanied with colorful pictures, which illustrate Toby's story. Extra notes about the medieval time period and a glossary are included in the back of the book. This book is a great way to get an up-close look at life in a medieval castle. 64 pgs. - Rachel S.
