      If you’ve considered purchasing the larger Word Teaser sets, this set is a great option to try first. This is a mini deck with 50 cards (rather than 150 in the larger). Each card contains a question regarding a U.S. state along with a hint on one side, and then information on the back. For example, “What U.S. state is only about 55 miles from the Russian border?” The hint is: “This state could easily hold Texas, California, and Montana in its borders.” Although there is just one question, the real wealth of information is on the second side. Each card becomes a “fast facts” card about a state, with the name, abbreviation, capital, population, land area, date it entered the union, nickname, and motto. With all these facts, this set is great for create-your-own games or supplementing a unit study on the United States. Cards are 2 ½” x 3 ½” and come in a storage box. For 2 or more players. ~ Ruth

      This biography provides readers with a concise and satisfying overview of the life of Ronald Reagan, from his simple Midwestern upbringing until his days in the White House and beyond. Although this biography of President Reagan by Winston Groom is not as comprehensive as others in print, it is a very readable version of our oldest president’s life. The book contains nice size print, but no illustrations. 152 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    Full of colorful artwork and photos as well as black & white illustrations, vocabulary tidbits, maps, and biographical sketches, it is skillfully formatted into an appealing and engaging text. Each of the 28 chapters (i.e. weekly lessons) have text interspersed with Narration Breaks (place to stop and recount orally the information that has been covered) and questions: "Ready to Explore". Each chapter ends with a two-page photo montage (a feature I love) that pertains to the chapter's focus. For instance, there is a collection of Native American dwellings each with short informational captions in America's Story.

       The Teacher Guide is a combination book. It is part teacher book, with some course instructional information, detailed daily lesson plans, an overview of the activities built into the student worksheets, teaching tips for struggling learners, supply lists, suggestions for special projects, and answers for student worksheets. Information for the teacher (about 10% of the book) includes a section on the importance of narration and words of encouragement from the publisher. The remainder of the book is student worksheets (which are reproducible for your own homeschooling family). These worksheets provide the heart of a student’s journal to accompany the course. Very nicely designed and well-illustrated, there are daily front-and-back worksheets. These are similar but appropriately different for each age level between the two series. The whole TG is three-hole punched, and for the record, there are no tests in either series.

      America’s Story worksheets include Draw-Write pages (journaling lines, space for sketching, copywork), Mini-Project pages (cut & glue projects), Written Narration pages, Timeline pages (cards for each chapter with space for students to create their own timeline), a Special Prayer Book (a cut apart book for writing a weekly prayer for his/her country), and Artist Study (quick introduction to an artist with a variety of related art activities). Mapwork and vocabulary study are also a featured part of these pages.

    Some characters and events are larger than life – though whether actual events or others' fascination with the story made them that way is sometimes hard to distinguish. In any event, some things are an inseparable part of our history: The Seven Cities of Cibola, The Battle of Adobe Walls, John Colter, California Gold Rush, The Mountain Meadows Massacre, George Armstrong Custer, Sitting Bull, Comanche, James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok, Calamity Jane, Billy the Kid, and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Author Michael Rutter investigates the mysteries surrounding these iconic people and events, chronicling the points that contributed to these great myths and legends of the West. Note: some mild cussing is used at points in the book. 161 pgs, pb. – Zach
