      These maps come from Rand McNally, a trusted name in map publications. They are paper (not laminated), offer the political view, and measure 50”x 32”. State boundaries are clear and states are in color, mountain ranges, lakes, and rivers are labeled and easy to find, cities are labeled and state capitals are marked with a star. Lines of latitude and longitude are marked with degrees, time zones are labeled, and the information is current. The same great wall map is available in either a rolled or folded option. The rolled map is packaged in a plastic tube for storage and no fold lines.  ~ Donna

    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

    When you're homeschooling it makes sense to study nutrition as a family, right? After all, you probably are all preparing and eating the same meals, and meal planning and shopping may even be cooperative efforts (if not, Mom is probably overworked!). Nutrition 101: Choose Life! was written for homeschooling families by a team of four moms (including two homeschool moms) to educate families about the relationship between our bodies and the food we eat. It's a unique book in that it is part textbook, part reference, and part cookbook. It's also a beautiful book, with glossy, full-color pages and good quality illustrations and photos. Finally, it's also biblically-based with plentiful Scripture references (KJV version) and a constant reminder that we are charged with maintaining the incredible body systems that God endowed us with. The course is divided into six main units, covering the major body systems: the brain and nervous system; digestive system; respiratory system and the senses; muscular and skeletal systems; cardiovascular and immune system; and the endocrine system and emotions. Units are further

    divided into four chapters, each designed to be completed in about a week. The authors provide a suggested daily schedule; however, you can easily adapt this to fit your needs. Each body system studied ties into a study of a particular nutrient or nutrients that you are encouraged to work into your diet, and to this end, quite a few healthy, whole-food recipes are included. The end of the book is also literally packed with a huge assortment of appendices (including lots of helpful charts!) and a thorough answer key for the activities. Each chapter includes text for reading, discussion questions, activity suggestions for elementary and secondary students, additional resources for further exploration, a "power recipe" and related activities. Typically, you'll first read about a body system, learn its function and all of the major parts, then continue on to learn about common health issues related to that body system and their causes. This is usually followed up by a closer look at a particular nutrient or group of nutrients that is beneficial to that particular body system.

    The "Power Recipe" (and associated list of activities) for each chapter is usually related to one of the featured beneficial nutrients. For instance, Unit 3, Chapter 4 is on the eyes. The first part of the chapter examines the parts of the eye and how the eye works. Then you'll read about eye sight issues including pink eye, sties, cataracts, glaucoma, presbyopia and age-related macular degeneration. Next you examine nutrients that help maintain eye health including antioxidants, beta-carotene (to be converted to Vitamin A), lycopene, anthocyanosides, DHA, lutein, zeaxanthin and others. Several foods that have an adverse effect on eyesight, including trans fatty acids and processed foods are also discussed here. Discussion questions include how to protect your eyes, what foods are bad for your eyes, and applying what you've read about the eye to a particular Scripture. The activities are hands on and include spending time blindfolded (elementary level), finding a percentage of family members that wear glasses or contact lenses (elementary), explaining the difference between an ophthalmologist and optometrist (secondary) and discussion other meanings of vision (secondary). The "Power Recipe" focuses on carrots as an ingredient for a fresh carrot juice smoothie, and several carrot and juicing activity suggestions round out the recipe activities.

    The format of this course makes it extremely easy to use as a family. You can assign everyone to read (or read aloud) the text, and then get back together for the discussion questions. Discussion questions tend to be fairly easy if you've read or heard the chapter, so everyone would be able to participate here, maybe even over dinner! Depending on the ages of your students and the time allotted, you will probably want to pick and choose activities to assign. The featured "Power Recipe" would be easy to incorporate into a meal and the related activities may naturally fit into meal preparation.

    While this course is packed with excellent information, recipes and activities, there are a few items I should note. First of all, for all of the anatomical information and vocabulary covered, there are no tests or worksheets to reinforce the reading. The focus of the course is really to educate families and encourage them to change their eating habits, not provide easily graded assessments! However, this would be fairly easy to supplement if desired. The recipes and foods you are encouraged to try are healthy whole foods with low to no sugar, whole grains and possibly some ingredients you haven't met before. If you've never explored your local health food store, you'll find quite a few reasons to visit it now! You'll also find that there are some pretty strong opinions presented here, for example, when discussing toxins found in household cleaners and personal care products, or when examining specific nutrients or supplements-including extensive recommendations for Young Living Essential Oils. You will likely come across something here that you may disagree with, based on your own beliefs, or at least something that will make you stop and think (or perhaps do some further research on). Lastly, I did notice a couple of typos in perusing this resource, which was disappointing in such an otherwise appealing book. Whether you are looking for a nutrition course or trying to educate yourself or your family on why you should eat healthier foods, this is definitely a resource to consider. It's one that you'll want to leave on the shelf long after you've "finished" the course, as you'll be referring to it again and again! 448 pgs, pb. Jess/Deanne

    Institute for Creation Research presents a well-researched, engaging introduction to the animal kingdom. Beginning with animals in God’s creation and the classification system, there is a brief discussion about humans as animals and an introduction to Charles Darwin’s work. Once the Biblical foundation is established, animals are divided by their design: swim, flight and land mover. A variety of animals are studied within this designation before introducing extinct and fossilized animals, and how animals use their senses and communicate. Additionally, children learn about camouflage, bioluminescence, migration, habitats, hibernation, and more. Beautifully illustrated with photographs and drawings. A recommended supplement to My Father’s World Exploration to 1850. Indexed. 117 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

    Eight lessons help kids understand what it means to be salt & light to the world and encourage them to develop a Christlike servant attitude. 262 pgs, hc.

    I Peter 3:15 says "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have," and this book offers the information you need to prepare to give those answers. This hefty 400+ page book will prepare believers to defend their faith and offers solid research and scientific fact for those who are skeptics, from the perspective of two gentlemen who were atheists and came to Christ through evidence.

    This text explores the meaning of truth and the truth of religion through evidence that supports Bible content in the areas of origins, miracles and signs of God, testimony to Jesus' life, inspiration of the Word of God, and more. The curriculum guide follows the text chapter by chapter and is designed to help students remember and understand the content presented in the text. This guide is published by Apologia and co-authored by Frank Turek & Chuck Winter. Frank is also one of the authors of the text, so the two books work together flawlessly for a complete one-year study of worldview and apologetics. The curriculum guide presents supplemental material, study questions, and activities for discussion, writing, and reflection. There is no answer key for the guide, but the author suggests that most answers can be found easily in the text, and sometimes page numbers are given to help you find them. Each lesson begins with pages to read from the text, important vocabulary with space to write their definitions, and four sections titled hook, book, look, and took. Hook is designed to get your attention and make you think; Book takes you deeper into the topic covered in the chapter; Look allows opportunities for the student to research assignments or other suggested activities; and Took summarizes the information and helps you apply it. A DVD series has been developed which features Frank Turek and enhances the content of the course, but it isn't required to complete the course.

    This course is easy to read and presents arguments for Christianity in a truly logical fashion. Humorous anecdotes are presented to reinforce some topics, and biographical information of some very famous scientists dot the landscape of this text and curriculum. Even if you don't want to use this as a high school course/elective, the text is an interesting read for anyone who has questions or wants to know how to defend their faith.

      In case you haven’t noticed, much of the English-speaking world is in the process of abandoning the Christian faith in favor of the humanist world around them. We’re not surprised to learn that students coming from the public schools are in this category but, stunningly, the percentages are not much better for those coming from Christian schools. Only homeschoolers are showing a difference in that trend. Why? It seems they are more likely to have received a more foundational education in Christian worldview. This easy-to-use course from Kevin Swanson and Generations With Vision will help ensure that your children have that same, secure foundation under them as they mature into more interaction with the world. Designed as a self-study course for 5th – 8th graders, there are ten (ten weeks) well laid-out lessons--each providing text, memory verses, and follow-up activities, including vocabulary. Lessons cover who God is, where everything came from, ethics, your community, the family, the church, the civil government (and what good civil government is), and good law. Answers are in the back. This workbook is consumable and non-reproducible. 160 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    Young people today are bombarded with examples of foolish behavior and humanistic thinking. How can we as parents, teachers and youth group leaders equip them with wisdom for making right choices through their later teen and adult years? How about guiding them into a right understanding of wisdom? Looking at the differences between Godly wisdom and worldly thinking as well as wisdom and foolishnesses, this study leads students in understanding what God's word says about every decision they will make in life. Topics include: Attitudes, Friendships, Loving people, dealing with the flesh, walking in the Spirit, integrity, meekness and humility, self-control, finances, controlling our words, being a good leader and much more. Consumable softcover Student Manual contains introductory reading assignments and lesson reviews, outlines for teaching sessions and inductive study questions designed to challenge students to "dig into" God's Word. The Teacher Manual on CD contains 35 lessons, schedules for three-, four-, or five- day per week Bible classes, learning objectives, teaching strategies, optional scripture memorization plan, weekly quizzes and unit tests (answer keys included), and reduced student pages with answers. ~ Deanne
