    For some kids, the study of history can be well, dry. Spark their interest with Amazing Facts in U.S. History! This activity book contains a series of quizzes on strange, but interesting, facts about Early Explorers, Native Americans, the First Thanksgiving, the 13 Colonies, the Revolution, the Gold Rush, the Civil War, World War II, U.S. Presidents, and more!

    Prior to each quiz is a summary of the topic to follow, the actual quiz questions are not covered. The goal is to spark interest in a topic. These would be an excellent way to excite interest in a topic or use as a guide for a history based unit study or research project. Quiz answer sheets provide explanations for the more unusual facts. Several "mystery from history" sections, which involve logic puzzles and word games, are also included. ~ Anh/Deanne

    Being a business major, I had to take both macro- and micro-economics, so my mom gave me this book to look at when I had spare time. I didn't have any economics at all before college, but I think a basic understanding such as this book provides would have been beneficial. I was surprised at how similar this book was to the things that I have learned about economics in college. On a simpler scale, of course, but the fundamental ideas being taught are the same. This reproducible workbook first introduces basic economic concepts including supply and demand along with scarcity and surplus, money value and interest, the federal reserve system, and inflation. A variety of activities are used in learning these concepts, such as case studies, graphic organizers, articles and puzzles. The second half of the book reinforces the principles with extensive, real life simulation activities. The child randomly chooses a career card with their salary, and this is their career for the duration of the book. Using this information and other concepts they have learned, they will fill out an application for a checking account, learn how to use checks and balance their checking account, understand their bank statements, fill out a credit card application, use their knowledge of loans and interest to calculate monthly payments on buying a car, fill out tax forms, and role-play many other important, real-life situations. Funny how economics is more interesting presented here than at a monotonous lecture at eight in the morning! ~ Stephanie

    For older students who did not learn cursive in the early grades, this is an instruction and practice book all in one. There are tips for posture, holding a pen, paper placement and even some good hints for the lefties. The font is simple, so if a child has had some cursive at some point, it should not be too conflicting to use this book. For example, the capital Q looks like this typed one, not like a 2. The workbook starts with pages of upper and lower-case letters. Then it moves to letter combos, days, months, common abbreviations, and onto some fabulous quotations to practice as copywork which come from historical documents and classic literature! It's very well done for a broad audience. Reproducible for classroom/home use only. Perforated, 62 pgs, pb. ~Sara

    This inexpensive resource book offers a wealth of terrific life science labs that easily correlate with any life science text, and introduces middle schoolers to lab equipment. It is organized into eight chapters, covering cells, DNA, heredity, simple organisms, the plant kingdom, the animal kingdom, ecosystems, and ecosystem cycles and biomes. Each chapter includes information, a related science lab activity, and a review worksheet. The information is succinctly presented, often with diagrams, charts, and bulleted lists. The lab activities are excellent, and you might be familiar with some of the old life science standbys. In the chapter on cells, three pages are devoted to explaining discoveries related to cells, the parts of a microscope, the main parts of a cell, and the differences between plant and animal cells. Several labs follow, including one where you make microscope slides with onion tissue and cells from a cheek swab and compare the cells, make a cell model using gelatin and a variety of other items, and demonstrate the process of osmosis doing a lab with a bag of scented gelatin in a bath of warm water and iodine. Now, not all chapters are that involved – many of them are much shorter, with fewer activities. Teacher resource pages are found at the end of both units in the book, and these include enrichment activities and an answer key. While you will need iodine, slides and cover slips, a microscope, and a magnifying glass for the labs, all other equipment seems to be readily available household items. 94 pages, reproducible. – Jess

Workbook is consumable and reproducible. Answers are provided. ~ Enh

    This concise, consumable resource provides students of the First World War with exposure to the primary causes of the conflict, and the struggle for neutrality that raged in the U. S. and elsewhere. Readers also learn about the daily life of soldiers on the Western Front who were engaged in trench warfare, as well as issues related to the role of propaganda. The final lessons include important details regarding the political effects of the Treaty of Versailles that ended the Great War. Each of the twenty-one lessons focuses on some important military or political aspect of the war, and provides students with online research assignments and targeted questions that help give them a greater understanding of the issues. Students also gain significant exposure to primary source material, such as treaties and original letters from soldiers, while they learn how to interpret relevant maps and graphs. Answer key and basic teaching recommendations are included. 42 pgs, pb. ~ Mike
