    What’s your favorite school subject?  Geography?  Well, um, er...no.  That attitude could change with this guide, brainchild of Maggie Hogan (co-author of Hands-on Geography) and Cindy Wiggers (of Geography Matters).  This curriculum is designed to incorporate geography with other school subjects so that it will be relevant and memorable, not isolated and disjointed.  First, the authors impart enthusiasm for the subject matter, give the teacher a geography refresher course, and then provide practical, interesting, even (dare I say it) fun ways to intertwine geography with other subjects.  Included are teaching tips, geography basics, lesson plans, reproducible activity pages and outline maps, a timeline with 300+ figures, all in a convenient digital PDF format, accessible with the serial number found on the inside back cover of the book.  Chapter 7 includes a unit study for Hans Brinker or The Silver Skates, so you will need a copy of that book as well. As protection for the overachieving teacher, a scope and sequence limits the amount of activities to be used in any one year. Please note that all printables are included online as downloadable PDFs, making the the book itself much smaller. All forms, resources and consumables that are available as PDFs are noted as such in the margins of the book. Just register the serial number inside the back cover and you will receive a link to download the PDFs. With so many tips, activity suggestions, lesson plans and more for grades K-12, this is a well-designed and helpful product.

    Right-handed or left-handed, simple shapes, finger tracing, color-coding, catchy repetitive phrases and lots of practice make this single handwriting instruction book quite unique. Use it with big kids to littles. It’s not juvenile looking, but also without a complicated design. Using the horizontal format with a top spiral at the top, work through the pages from the front, then flip over and work through the back sides. The four basic shapes are color coded: orange ovals, lime loops, silver swings and mauve mounds. Finger tracing builds muscle memory. Saying the task steps of a task as you perform them helps reinforce new motor skills. And of course, there is pencil work tracing: inside bubble letters; writing letters; connecting letters, followed by sentences. Each lesson reviews the 4 main shapes. Additionally unique, the letters are grouped by the 4 basic shapes, not in alphabetical order: a good option for visual learners. It’s just well done. Whether your child would benefit from these methods, has never mastered cursive, or is a more traditional learner, this is as good a fit. Writing lines are .75” with dotted midline. Each lesson (10 total) can be completed in one 45-60-minute session, or in (up to 4) shorter, weekly lessons spread. 11”x 8.5”, 111 pgs, pb. ~ Sara

    This inexpensive set is great for learning chemistry hands-on! Models of all kinds of molecules can be constructed from the colored plastic spheres and the plastic bond connectors of long (flexible) and short (non-flexible) lengths. Pieces fit together snugly, which could be frustrating younger students, but the constructed models should stay intact even with handling. Includes 41 carbon atoms/spheres (black), 6 oxygen atoms (red), 5 chlorine atoms (green), 4 nitrogen atoms (blue), 1 sulfer atom (yellow), 1 phosphorus atom (purple), 12 small hydrogen atoms (white), 1 larger Metal (I) atom and 2 smaller Metal (II) atoms (all silver), 39 single covalent bond connectors (short gray rods), 4 single ionic bonds (short purple rods), 8 double/triple covalent bonds (long gray rods) and 2 double ionic bonds (long purple rods).

    The classic toy in its original form! It's surprising how much fun and entertainment this coil of thin metal can provide. Unlike many newer types of slinkies that are made from plastic, this is made from the traditional, silver metal. Walk the slinky down stairs or slopes or just move it rhythmically back and forth in your hands! A favorite toy for kids of all ages!

    By customer request, we are adding this kit, the largest and most advanced of Thames & Kosmos' physics kits. Not just an "upgraded" version of the Physics Workshop, this takes young scientists further in their hands-on physics investigations, especially into the study of water and air. The full-color, 96-page experiment book contains 17 experiments to explore the properties of air and water, particularly with regard to air and water pressure, how air and water flow, and air and water relating to energy. Each section includes hands-on experiments to do, using the materials in the kit and some household items as well. The second half of the book contains instructions for building the models of real-world contraptions which show air and water in action. A hydraulic lift, rotating crane, water turbine, backhoe, wind tunnel, trick fountain and race car are just a few of the fourteen exciting projects. The 212 parts included in the kit are also compatible with other Physics Workshop, Physics Discovery and Physics Solar Workshop. Winner of a Parent's Choice Silver Award. – Jess

    For all your hands-on, kinesthetic, visual, arty, or just-plain-bored-with-textbook students, I recommend this! With 26 different map activities covering various periods from the first Americans (stated as arriving 15,000 years ago) to the landing on the moon, each major period of US history is included. Each map activity includes a two page spread with directions on how to make the maps, followed by two reproducible map pages which usually require tape and scissors to complete. The period-applicable maps, once completed, become 3-D maps with moveable pieces. All are in black and white and can be colored, if desired. The directions pages also include teaching points on the geography and history surrounding the maps. A really neat supplement to any US history program, some of the periods mapped include: Vikings discover America, settlements at Roanoke and Jamestown, piracy on the high seas, Washington crosses the Delaware, the trail of tears, western cattle trails, building the Panama Canal, and many more. pb. ~ Zach

    A vibrant rainbow of color, these twelve super-sturdy pencils will quickly become the favorite medium of your little artists. I loved the feel of the large, rounded, triangular pencils in my adult hand when I took them for a "test doodle." Colors include: red, orange, yellow, green, sky blue, dark blue, violet, magenta, black, brown, gold and silver. Cores are thick - 5.5 mm. A special pencil sharpener is included, but they would also fit in a large-hole pencil sharpener. Prang is known for their vibrancy and these pencils meet their high standard. ~ Sara

    When I look up and see a jet streaking across the sky, I'm amazed that such a big hunk of metal can actually get up in the air and fly. Men have been fascinated with the art of flight for millennia, trying to copy the birds of the air and what their Creator has made the winged creatures do so naturally. Early man-made attempts at flight were dismal failures—until the Wright brothers came along. Flight captured the imaginations of Wilber and Orville Wright from the time they were young. Their curiosity was aroused by the experiments of Otto Lilienthal, and these close brothers began a journey of learning and research. They began experimenting with gliders and failed miserably. So they experimented some more. They were eventually successful, but it was a long, hard road to get there. This is their story, wonderfully told by Russell Freedman and illustrated with contemporary photography (including many photos shot by the Wright brothers themselves). This large paperback would make a great addition to a unit study on flight or inventions, but children will enjoy reading this story just for fun, too. Don't be surprised if they become inspired to pursue and develop big ideas of their own! 129 pgs, pb. –Chad

    Art projects are a great way to reinforce content and represent different cultures. Think about how crafting a Nigerian royalty hanging while studying Nigeria could help children better retain and appreciate aspects of Nigerian life. Chinese printing presses and Peruvian silver wind chimes add dimension to your lessons or fun to a unit study. This book ties together art, history, geography and culture with clear, illustrated directions for over 135 projects using household items. Lots of projects use recycled materials too! The book is divided by continent, and includes all 7, so you can easily find a project to go with your lesson. Some ideas are just fun and relate to the continents, like those in the Antarctica chapter. Your students can make a salt dough penguin, snowy stencils w/glitter & shoe polish, a frozen fish sculpture and a snow globe! What a time saver to have this all at hand! Your students can use it to make great visual aids for a presentation of a culture or geographical region. Pb, 188pp. ~ Sara

      This play sand has all the unique motion qualities of regular Kinetic Sand, but with added shimmer and color. Not only are these colors more fun than your typical brown sand, but they also have a very fine glitter mixed in for some sparkle. The Gem tones come in assorted colors with gold glitter: Amethyst (a beautiful, deep plum color), Emerald (a vibrant green that is reminiscent of St. Patrick’s Day décor), and Sapphire (a rich, gorgeous dark blue). The Metallic shades come in either silver and gold, with the gold being a darker yellow with gold glitter and the silver being a gunmetal grey with subtle silver shine. While it is important to note that the packaging does not quite reflect the real look of the sand (making it look more like pure glitter), the product itself is not lacking in beautiful, rich tones with a more mature, subdued shine that is sure to be loved my kids and adults alike. – Laura

    This game combines wooden nesting boxes with classic bouncy balls to create an open-ended game the whole family can enjoy together.

    As a high school teacher I was always delighted at how much my big kids loved a sticker on their papers – imagine if it was a scratch-off! These scratch-off circles are 1" in diameter and can be placed over a grade/score or even over a privilege! They are silver and scratch off like a lottery ticket. Put one on a chore chart so a child can reveal their treat for doing chores well all week. Place one over a student's score before you hand their work back and let them enjoy the anticipation! Make a party invitation and place them over the time and date! If you have a hands-on learner, you could use these to engage them in a subject. Make review cards and place one over the answer for them to scratch off and reveal. It may help them retain that answer better than if they just looked at the word. Contains 108 stickers. ~ Sara
