The Intermediate/Junior High guide features 35 weekly lessons with reading assignments, mapping activities, research and discussion topics, hands-on and craft suggestions, vocabulary lists and more.

    Did you know that Mark Twain wrote a major work on Joan of Arc? I didn't either! However, Mark Twain himself stated, "I like Joan of Arc best of all my books; and it is the best…" He spent twelve years researching detailed accounts written by both the French and the English, and two years writing. This story is amazingly told (remember, it is written by one of the best storytellers of all time!), as Twain ingeniously has a fictional man by the name of Alden, translating a fictional memoir by the narrator and Joan's long time friend, de Conte. This is an extraordinary book about an infamous woman, written by a literary phenomenon. Pb, 452 pgs. – elise

       Originally written in the mid-twentieth century, this text provides readers with an interesting overview of some of the leading personalities and events from world history, beginning with the fall of the Roman Empire to the close of the reign of Queen Elizabeth. Students will gain valuable exposure to the laws and culture that developed in medieval Europe, as well as the significant changes that came to people in the West because of the Crusades. Several chapters also touch upon the feudal system in Europe, the influence of the monks and monasteries, and the exploits of influential knights and monarchs. Some of the cultural references in the text material are a bit dated, yet this world history supplement still offers readers a useful overview of the early development of Western Europe. 216 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    Fourth in the A Child's Geography series, this one or two semester course studies the vast and tiny kingdoms that made up Western Europe, along with the modern day countries of Western Europe. Picking up where the A Child's Geography Volume 3: Explore the Classical World (#007672) ended, this book explores the tumultuous times between the Classical era and the Renaissance. While having a basic knowledge of the Classical period is helpful in understanding the nuances of the Middle Ages, it is not necessary to complete the other volumes in the series before embarking on this journey.

    Written in a similar style to the preceding volumes, history and geography are taught with a living book approach that weaves together engaging text and vibrant photographs and graphics. Students will truly feel as if they are walking in the footsteps of the great minds from the medieval world like Charlemagne, Ferdinand and Isabella, Joan of Arc, Johannes Gutenberg, and Martin Luther while exploring Spain, Portugal, France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the tiny kingdoms: Andorra, Monaco, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg.

    While the textbook is a standalone resource for readings and narration exercises, the author has provided a website link to download additional activities. This includes timelines for each chapter, maps to label (and completed maps), hands- on activities that include games and craft projects, recipes, supplemental reading resources, prayer guide and much more. Additional links are scattered throughout the text which provide media resources on a variety of topics. Chapters include bold vocabulary words with a glossary in the back. 240 pgs, SC. ~ Deanne

    Weaving together primary sources containing eyewitness accounts, original writings, detailed maps and numerous colorful illustrations; this is not your typical Middle Ages History text. In fact, you may quickly agree that this book breathes new life into world history! Beginning with an introduction to the "cast of characters" students are quickly transported back in time as the storyline unravels revealing this pivotal time period that is crucial to understanding our own times. The history of the Middle Ages is one of believers and barbarians, popes and peasants, competing empires and unforgettable leaders. It also the story of the fall of the Roman Empire, invasion of the Huns, the rise of feudalism, and the reign of plunder brought by the Vikings. But it is also a story of faith: Augustine and Aquinas, Francis of Assisi, Joan of Arc, and the Crusaders; the spread and reform of religious institutions; expansions of trade and city life, the rise of regional empires and local feudal regimes and the revolutionary advances in science and technology. Engaging writing, abundant illustrations and a detailed timeline all flow together to create a telling of history that will delight teens and adults alike. Recommended for the Beautiful Feet Medieval History Literature guide, this book would be a valuable asset to any study of the Middle Ages. Hc, 189 pgs. ~ Deanne

    More than just artist biographies, this book goes behind the scenes of many great works of art from a variety of periods and styles. Everyone from the Dutch masters to modern American artists are here. Gorgeous color photos accompany interesting text. There are 40 projects for students to try themselves, ranging from writing a poem to making a collage to creating an action figure or puppet and writing a story about it. Over 50 artists including Rembrandt, Matisse, Degas, O’Keefe, and Calder. It’s a different approach to an art book and I quite liked it. In fact, I read the whole book! It could be a good starting point for a unit study or just add it to any art program at home or at school. 175 pp, sc. ~ Sara

    This colorful workbook offers many pages of pre-writing practice disguised as fun follow-the-path and tracing activities. The first twenty pages are brightly colored pictures with paths for kids to trace as they help the frog jump across the lily pads, the plane land on the runway, and other similar concepts. The paths get increasingly difficult, calling for more and more control and concentration. The next several pages move on to tracing shapes (appearing on inviting coloring pages) and then specific strokes. Two full pages of bright stickers provide further fun and motivation for young students. 32 pgs, perforated for easy removal. – Melissa

    Learn what your body needs to be healthy and then prepare these delicious recipes to please not only those parts, but your taste buds too! This cookbook teaches children about the nutrients needed by individual parts of the human body as well as keeping the body as a whole healthy. After getting acquainted with the kitchen through the cooking tips and safety rules on tools, terms, and appliances at the beginning of the book, children are ready to start meeting the cravings of their body. The rest of the book is divided into two sections. In the first, chapters focus on separate body parts or systems such as the heart, blood, muscles, bones, teeth, nerves, digestive system, and hair, teeth and nails. Each of these pieces of the body requires different nutrients and vitamins to stay in good shape. Each chapter in this section begins with an explanation of that body part, discussing the features of the part including how it works and what it needs to work well. Following this interesting introduction is a fun activity or experiment that further explores that amazing body part. The rest of each chapter holds 4-6 scrumptious recipes containing the nutrients important for that part of the body. The recipes, marked from 1-3 based on difficulty, list the time and tools needed for preparation in addition to the needed ingredients and clear directions. The chapters in part two follow the same format but focus on the body as a whole, concentrating on the food pyramid, energy and exercising, maintaining a healthy weight, and fruits and vegetables. Again, each of these sections holds an informative description, fun exercise, and easy, tasty recipes. Appendices hold the nutrient content of the recipes, a guide to food labels, and tips on what is safe to eat. 184 pgs. ~ Steph

    I devoured all of Joan Aiken's books when I was younger, and this one was no exception. I loved the story about Bonnie and her cousin Sylvia, who overcame depressing and odd events with cooperation, cheerfulness, and faith. The story begins in the deep of winter, with Bonnie expectantly awaiting the arrival of her cousin Sylvia. Although the troublesome wolves of that region cause some trouble with the train, Sylvia arrives and Bonnie, who is aching for a friend, is sure they will have a wonderful time. Unfortunately, soon their guardian and school teacher Miss Slighcarp, a distant "cousin" arrives as well to watch over them and the household while their parents leave on a cruise to improve Bonnie's mother's health. Miss Slighcarp hardly waits until the parents are gone to wreak havoc on the household, send the "spoiled brats" away, and try and discover how to get her hands on Bonnie's father's fortune. The cousins must go to great lengths to restore Bonnie's house and to find their father's lawyer, in a distant city, to help them. - Jess

    What would you call your artistic style? Are you a fan of bright moving colors like Miro? Do you like to use positive and negative space like Chillida? Do you want to try drawing with scissors like Matisse did? This book is interactive. As you learn about 18 artists, you will be asked to draw, paint, cut and create both in and out of the newsprint pages. Many of the activities use simple art/craft supplies you likely have on hand (and if you don't you can improvise.) There are several colored pages in the back to get you started. It has a nice variety of projects that leave you room to add your own artistic flair. It does focus more on modern art, which is nice since there are loads of classical art books out there! Add this to your art lessons and see what happens! Approx. 130pp, sc, 8x11". ~ Sara
