    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

     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.

    The apostle Paul was an effective evangelist in the first century because he was able to understand how people of a different culture thought about the important issues of life, then helped them connect their beliefs to the truth of God. For the church to be successful today, we need the same skill. You would think this should be easy, since we live in our own culture, but author Gene Edward Veith, Jr. believes some of us have missed the transition from modernism to postmodernism. Modernism was marked by a belief in scientific rationalism, humanism, and bias against the past. Postmodernism maintains that there is no absolute truth, that all truth is relative. While a modernist might believe that Christianity is not true because of some perceived scientific or historical conflict, a postmodernist believes that Christianity is not true because it cannot be the only truth or the absolute truth, and is therefore dismissed because it is intolerant.

    This is the overview. Veith, a regular contributor to World Magazine, delves into details in four major areas: thought, art (including architecture, television, movies, and literature), society (family, government, and daily life), and religion. I generally avoid philosophy-type books because they are often difficult to understand, but this book is very readable and gives specific examples, an important step in helping me grasp ethereal concepts. Well worth reading to get a handle on what passes for thinking in our times. 256 pgs, pb.

    I have very fond memories of playing this computer game as a child, so I was excited to take a look at this new and updated edition. I wasn't disappointed, as this edition is even more fun and exciting than the original. It's also a ton more educational than it used to be as well. For those who aren't familiar, this is a game where players fill a wagon with people and supplies and then head West on the historic Oregon Trail. Like real people who traveled the trail, you run into problems like food and water shortages, broken wagon parts, flooded rivers, illness and injuries, stolen supplies, bad weather, getting lost, and more. The game is more realistic than is used to be, as players get more choices on supplies to bring and even different wagon styles. Besides being able to hunt like the original game (with better graphics), players can also fish and forage for food, which is a lot of fun. In this edition, players can select various characters, and they'll share historic facts in a storytelling manner, like you're chatting with pioneers as they share their hopes, fears, and adventures. Another great addition is a storytelling time with Captain Jed Freedman. These are basically mini-movies of Captain Jed sharing true stories around the campfire at night. With all these things combined, I was impressed with the amount of history lessons contained in the game. They break up the daily traveling and trials in a realistic manner as players cross plains, ford rivers, and climb mountains. Students can keep track of their adventures in a trip diary, which can even be printed out at the end of the trip (hopefully when the entire wagon has reached Oregon and not when the last member has died from dysentery). More educational, multicultural, and realistic than past versions, this is the perfect supplement for history studies on this period. But honestly, your children will probably want to play just for the fun of it. A staple of many childhoods, this game has only gotten better with time.

    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

    If you're a Christian homeschooler, you've probably struggled at one time or another with presenting a biblical sequence of history to your children. It's often easy to just skip over the evolutionary content that prefaces most world history books, but it's not so easy to estimate biblical dates for early historical events to make them fit into a biblically-based history. Fortunately for us, Ruth Beechick has also struggled with this issue, and this book is the result of her extensive studies. It is intended to provide what she sees as "the best and most biblical view of world history" in a brief course for teens, adults, and even young students. Five chapters cover early times, the kingdom of Israel, Gentile kingdoms, the kingdom of Christ (present day), and dating systems. For the most part, the emphasis is on ancient history, and so we begin in Genesis working our way from Creation through the Flood and beyond. The chapters rely heavily on excerpts from the Bible as the primary text, although the chapter on Gentile kingdoms has brief summaries of each civilization. Coverage is not deep here; rather the intention is to provide students a framework into which they can fit the rest of their world history studies. The author recommends taking time out from a current history program to do this study, as students (and teacher!) will have a much better frame of reference once they have completed it. Although the book could be used with a single student, it would also work well with students at different levels or as a whole family study. The reading level is fairly low, and the assignments are open-ended enough that young and old students can do them to the best of their own ability. Ruth Beechick provides plenty of helpful information for the teacher too, including how to best work through each chapter with students. The book is fairly short (only 121 pages) and is divided into 42 sub-sections; if one section is completed daily, the book will only take two or three months to finish. Each subsection includes directions, questions for discussion (which could be posed before or after the reading), text and/or Bible verses, and notebook assignments. The notebook assignments typically consist of writing brief "statements" about the lesson or short writing assignments based on the lesson. These are then compiled into a notebook during the study. At the end of the book you'll find sample answers, an annotated bibliography, and an index. What a great study to start off your year, especially if you will be using some secular history resources! pb. – Jess
