    Enthusiastic users of Susan Wise Bauer’s Story of the World will be excited to rediscover the modern era, “From Victoria’s Empire to the End of the USSR.” Formatted similarly to the previous volumes in the series, the Modern Age text contains 42 chapters highlighting some of the major people, places and events in world history, from 1850 to 2000. Some highlights include: the Crimean war, the American Civil War, the Second Reich, the Japan’s Meiji restoration, the Suez canal, the Boers, Western expansion in the U.S., the Boxer Rebellion in China, the Mexican Revolution, the rise of Joseph Stalin, Hitler’s rise to power, the Holocaust, the Atom bomb, the partitioning of Palestine, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, Chernobyl, the end of Communism, and much more. As usual, students will get a “balanced” view of world history, with events from nearly every country in the world - not just Europe and the U.S. Each “story” from history is told in an exciting, readable way, which is sure to hold students’ attention - especially as they cover history in the not-too-distant past! The activity book is once again substantial and invaluable, containing both teacher and student portions. The parent’s pages feature review questions with answers, guidelines for an outlining exercise for the student, suggested further reading and literature tie-ins, map activities, and hands-on projects related to the topics covered in the text. As usual, the projects are very creative and I can definitely see kids getting excited about doing them - one of the activities for Chapter One definitely caught my eye! In this activity, kids will get to time themselves and compare “loading” two different “rifles” with cardboard tubes, homemade “cartridges,” and a few other kitchen materials! The parent’s portion for each chapter also features cross-references on the same topic to other resources, including the Kingfisher History Encyclopedia, the Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World, the Usborne Book of World History, the Usborne History of the 20th Century, and the Usborne Internet-Linked Encyclopedia. The student’s portion of the activity guide includes partial outlines for each chapter for them to finish, outline maps for map activities, worksheet activities, and timeline figures including world flags from each country’s independence or establishment. The tests and answers for this volume are bound into a paperback, 3-hole punched volume, and include tests and answers for each chapter. Once again, Susan Wise Bauer has put together a very exciting and multi-faceted history study that everyone will love!

    The text is now available in either paperback, hardcover, or spiral binding, for your convenience. The Activity Book is a bound paperback. - Jess

    This fun and educational supplement will be a great diversion from boring textbooks and endless amounts of reading! Students will love putting some of their other talents into their history lessons. This book is divided into several sections including Creation, Noah, Tower of Babel, Egypt, China, Joseph and Moses, David, Jonah, and the Trojan Horse. As you can see, it covers many aspects of early history with a good mix of Biblical accounts and other historical events. Each section begins with a drawing of the time period or place, followed by drawing instructions for all different aspects of the picture, and concluding with a page of information about the time period so students can practice their penmanship. For example: Egypt starts with a colored page featuring a pyramid, mummy, and sphinx. The following pages have separate step-by-step drawing instructions (1-3 pages per drawing) for each of those items. The information about Egypt closes the section, written in cursive so students have a model to copy their handwriting after. Sprinkled with interesting facts and Bible verses, this book is sure to bring the ancient times to life. 64 pages. ~ Megan

     Concluding with the profound observation, America is a great nation and people are needed to practice, protect and promote economic liberty, this course introduces students to the history of economic thought, and modern economic issues currently facing America, before family economics, entrepreneurship and power of education are explored.

      One semester in length, the full course kit contains 3 Texts, 3 Activity books and the Teacher’s Resource Kit (TRK), along with the TRK digital download.  Designed for independent study, each text, called a chapter, cover fifteen topics.  Each text contains the lesson reading, bold vocabulary words with definitions in a vocabulary “box” on the page, life principle quotes and video clips via a QRC codes. Corresponding activity books provide questions for each topic. Questions are fill in the blank and matching, with lines to write the life principle.

    The Teacher’s Resource Kit includes black line masters for section quizzes (9), chapter tests (3), quiz and chapter test answer keys, activity answer keys, and the table of contents. Black line masters are reproducible for classroom use.

      Chapter 1 introduces students to economics as the engine by which capitalism, free enterprise, private property and the relationship between employees, employers, and entrepreneurs create jobs. Additionally, this chapter also explores government regulation, supply and demand, and economic factors such as taking risks, investments and profit and loss. The evolution of economic precepts and principles, from ancient Greece, Rome, Europe and the Dark Ages are explored. Historical persons that shaped modern economic theory are presented including Moses, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, William Penn, Winston Churchill, Margret Thatcher, and Ronald Reagan. This chapter also delves into the Industrial Revolution, World Wars I and II, and the Cold War, and their impact on economics. Worth mentioning, the impact of an economy based on Biblical principles is discussed for its historical value and includes a look at Marxism and Darwinian theory. Chapter 2 further explores the history of the Judeo-Christian and European influences that were foundational to the capitalism in the United States. The authors compare the historical teachings of Catholic and Ana-Baptist beliefs and provide a brief overview of the Protestant reformation and the influences of the Church on economic philosophy. This is done neutrally with no scripture verse support or proselytizing noted.  An in-depth look is given to the economic significance of the US Constitution, Mayflower Compact and the Bill of Rights. Students will briefly examine the impact of the industry, railroads, progressive education, unions, the New Deal, welfare, immigration, private organizations and “trickle-down economics.” Chapter 3 reviews contemporary economic issues including banking, creditors, credit cards, checking accounts, debt, impulse buying, mortgages, dividends, stock market, collateral, loans, bankruptcies, insurance, real estate, gross and net income, inflation, IRAs and 401Ks, tax audits, and much more.  Students are also introduced to the pros and cons of starting and operating a small business, along with post high school options: college, trade school, and military.

      A captivating look at the foundations of economic philosophy that will appeal to students-especially those without a desire to study the math and deeper theories of economic thought. All texts and activity books are softcover. ~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

    Digging back much further than the development of the Periodic Table, this extremely readable (and entertaining!) book tells the whole story of chemistry, from the first pure elements ever found and used in ancient times (gold and silver) to Mendeleev's development of the Periodic Table, and beyond to the discovery of protons, neutrons and electrons. Along the way, we are introduced to the great thinkers of Greece, Medieval alchemists, Robert Boyle, Joseph Priestly, Lavoisier, John Dalton, Humphrey Davy, Ernest Rutherford, and many other colorful characters from chemistry's history. Believe me - they are definitely colorful! Avoiding dry facts and scientific language, author Benjamin D. Wiker has written this readable history of chemistry with an excellent blend of fact, anecdote and interactive writing. - Jess

    There are times when I pick up a new item and find myself saying "Wow I sure wish this was around when I was being homeschooled!" I loved maps and geography. Actually, I still do. So when I had the opportunity to explore this program, I was very excited. The concept is very simple: these are PDF maps that can be manipulated to show just what you need you can add or subtract names, borders, rivers, color, cities, and physical features at will. With the newest version, you can even edit maps in Adobe Reader and print them. This makes this a fantastic resource for many ages and skill levels and a really great value. There are four main map categories on the home screen: World, USA, Historical, and Thematic. The program includes 75 maps of the world, over 60 USA maps, over 150 historical maps and map sets from Mystery of History. When you click on "World" you are shown a world map with continents and oceans named. You can create a map at that level or click on one of the names to "zoom in" on a particular area. The next map, again, gives you the option to create a map or "zoom in" to get details on a couple of neighboring countries. There are only a couple of instances where the closest "zoom" will show an individual country (like New Zealand, Australia, Ireland/Northern Ireland), most show a continental region (like Southern Africa or Korean peninsula). The USA category can be explored by state or by region. In a similar manner to the countries, states are shown with their neighbors (though neighbors are only labeled with the state name and rivers if selected). The category for historical maps is further divided by time period: Ancient (Creation 33AD), Middle Ages (33 1456), Renaissance and Reformation (1457 1707), and Modern (1708 Present). Thematic maps include American history, Explorers, Native Americans, World Wars, Biblical Maps, 20th Century Treaties, and Chinese Dynasties. You can access different maps through several means. The first is the "zoom in" process described above. The second is via the left-hand navigation that pops up as soon as you select any category. This lists all of the major regions or time periods in the category so you can pick from the list quickly. The third way to access maps is via one of the alphabetical indexes unique to each of the four main categories.

    The content doesn't end there. All of the maps used in Mystery of History volumes 1-4 and All American History volumes 1-2 are included in the program. When you select one of those volumes you can either scroll through all of the maps or use the left-hand navigation to find the required map. These maps are not customizable, but are presented as they would be used in the programs.

    Another useful feature is the Teacher's Guide. The resources of the TG will be helpful for learning about this program as well as teaching geography in general: quick start guide, tutorial video, user manual, downloadable MP3 workshops on "Loving Geography" and "Packing a Punch with Timelines and Maps", and several lessons adapted from the book "Hands-On Geography": 50 bright ideas for using outline maps, the 5 themes of geography, how to make a salt-dough map, history and geography, 16 easy mapping projects, and Joseph's Journey.

    As far as supplemental geography resources go, this one is fantastic in scope and depth. With over 350 different maps and the ability to customize as needed, you can incorporate maps and geography into any lesson with ease. Compatible with Windows through Windows 10 or Mac and requires Adobe Reader 12.0 or higher. ~Zach
