    If you like the idea of a dvd to teach your high school physics course, Wes Olson has the solution – Physics 101. Like the other courses in the 101 Series, Wes Olson offers an engaging visual course rather than having the student read a text. Learn about the physics of our world, historical figures and their contributions and do hands-on labs to help you understand the concepts.

    Physics 101 covers concepts in these areas: light and color, mirrors and lenses, invisibility and speed of light, sound, acoustics, fire, thermodynamics, heat and cold, electricity, outlets and circuits, batteries and electromagnetic spectrum, Isaac Newton, Universal Law of Gravity, 1st Law of Motion, 2nd and 3rd Laws of Motion, Albert Einstein, relativity, quantum mechanics and the future of physics. There are 20 segments and a video for each that range in length from 20 to 43 minutes - a total of 11 hours and 10 minutes of video. Options are offered for subtitles and closed captions – a variety of languages are offered.

    There are PDFs that you may want to print and are included on the fourth disc (there are four discs in this course). The first pdf is titled, “Course Accreditation Program” and the second is the “Guidebook.” Instructions for opening the pdfs are printed on the face of Disc 1. Print out the files, hole punch them and put them in a notebook for your convenience.

    The Course Accreditation Program (CAP) is important information on how to use the course and get high school credit – a syllabus. Physics 101 provides about 135 hours of content, which is enough for one credit in physics. Basically, a lesson includes 4 steps: watch the video lesson, discuss the questions (found in the guidebook), do the mini-labs, research, write a 200-word report and take the segment quiz. The CAP includes all of the information for doing mini-labs – lists, instructions and where to fit them in. Mini-labs use common household items and a master list is found on page 4 of the CAP. You may run across a few unusual items, such as a canned air horn, microphone with jack to plug into your cell phone, magnesium fire starter, volt meter, etc. Items that are less common are marked, and you can skip labs if the items can’t be found; you will find that some sections have no labs and others have multiple. Instructions are included for assembling a student notebook that will be used all year; here students will record, take notes.

    The Guidebook is 106 pages and includes the table of contents (showing the segment and chapter divisions), an outline for each segment, discussion questions, quizzes, quiz answers and an alphabetic index.

    Physics 101 is a great high school level physics for your visual student or an interesting and informational watch for your family. Presented from a Christian worldview, students will learn about the relationship between science and the Bible in the area of physics. ~ Donna

     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

    This workbook can be used as a stand alone study of US geography, or it can be used in conjunction with the book Fifty States Under God to further explore the geography of each state. Arranged in order of statehood, the study of each state is its own lesson, and discuses three key areas: land regions, borders and geographical features, and major cities. Extensive use is made of state maps in each of these areas to help illustrate these points and features. During each lesson on individual states, students are periodically referred back to an overall map of the US, so they definitely get lots of practice finding and placing states and locations across the country. Prior to beginning the lessons on the states, there are 3 lessons covering the geography of the US as a whole as well as a quiz on US geography and an introduction to geography from a Christian perspective. At various points throughout the course, there are 4 geography overview and testing sections, each one encompassing 3 lessons. The appendix contains extra copies of maps, the tests, and the answer keys. There are schedules included for completing the workbook as either a one-semester course or a one-year course, and there is also a page of suggestions for how to schedule this book with Fifty States Under God. The workbook is spiral-bound and softcover. – Zach

    Just as words are broken up phonetically in order to pronounce them, they can be broken into pieces to reveal the meaning of the word. Knowing word roots is an important part of literacy. Each lesson holds four pages which teach a set of roots. The first page is a word list for the student to read and study the words and their definitions. The second page holds a vocabulary sort which involves matching all of the words with their definitions. The next page is a group activity, read-around review, but it can be performed by one student as well. In this activity each word is on a card, along with a clue as to which word comes next. After the clue is read, the person holding the word card that is the answer reads their clue, and so on until all of the words have been identified. The last page of each lesson contains a vocabulary quiz. After every two lessons a review test ensures the roots are remembered. 144 pages. ~ Steph

    Egghead’s Guide to Vocabulary (7-AD)

      In this one-book approach to vocabulary, there are 3 tiers of difficulty (100, 200 & 300 level words.) The first tier words are fairly common, but still very useful. For each word, you have a definition in language that students can understand and an example of it being used in 1-2 sentences. The sentences have some sort of story/situation to make the word more memorable. The Egghead character is there to point some helpful things (and sometimes just add levity) like the phonetic spelling of the word using the IPA or International Phonetic Alphabet. However, with more difficult words, there are not as many phonetic pronunciations. I recommend you check into the proper pronunciations with unfamiliar words. After a dozen or so words is an exercise – matching, grouping, fill in the blank, reading comprehension w/multiple choice, etc. The level 200 words are less likely to be familiar to students, but are fantastic words to master and use in their speaking and writing. Level 300 words are specifically for SAT or ACT test preparation where you will have to read and decipher meanings and write an impressive essay. There is the same format for all 3 levels, but again, little to no phonetic help at the harder levels. In the back of the book are some helpful resources including lists of prefixes/roots/suffixes and their meanings; 2 longer fill-in-the-blank quizzes; and answers to all exercises. 8x10”, 235pp, Sc. ~ Sara

    So, you could pick up a deck of cards or start through an endless series of workbooks in your quest to become educated about Greek and Latin roots. Alternatively, you could thoroughly enjoy an entertaining DVD backed by online access to flashcards, quizzes and games that test your abilities to retain, recognize, match, listen, spell, and type word roots! Dwane Thomas (Visual Latin) hosts this engaging DVD series, each of which includes 10 lessons (15-18 minutes in length) that explore a total of 20 Latin and Greek roots. 10 or so English words derived from each root means over 200 English words are explained. Honestly, this doesn't even feel like learning! The lessons are to the point – and fun to watch. And the additional activities and games online can quickly become competitive – child vs. child or child vs. parent (don't be too sure of yourself mom or dad: you may think you're out of the age bracket for this course, but I guarantee a challenge!) The online component is very easy to use (I was able to start working on the lesson 1 quiz and games within seconds of going to the website). You can even create an account (or multiple accounts) and then your game scores are ranked against other Wordup! users. Simple, effective and a great value. – Zach

    This activity book (workbook) is designed to help students uncover what they value most and help them self-define the morals and values that make them who they are. The reader works through twenty chapters which focus on character and morals. The first 8 provide a basis for the students understanding of himself: learning to think about ones own thoughts and feelings, interpreting mistakes, finding balance and journeying to reach for ones dreams, etc. Then, the remaining chapters address some specific morals: honesty; learning; respect; peace in nature (appreciation for and value of environment); boundaries; healthy relationships; consequences; forgiveness; humor; gratitude and diversity. Note: no rationale is suggested for why one should have these traits; there are no Biblical references or motivations listed other than those implicitly suggested by quotations from other children who have also worked through this book. Ultimately, the student himself will determine the reasoning. Each trait is briefly described; a criteria checklist is then provided to help the student evaluate his own ability in each area. The student then reads quotations from other kids regarding the topic. The next step asks the student to think about and practice the principles, imagining and drawing themselves using that principle. Finally, the student is asked to answer specific introspective questions. The lesson culminates in writing a final summation of the students view about this trait. These twenty summation statements then become the students overall mission statement.

    To explain this practically, lets use the trait of Honesty. Some goal statements are "I will strive to be honest with myself and with others; I can count on myself and count on others". After reading other kids statements, the student is asked to think about honesty and practice it that day. Finally, the student is asked to write "Why its important to be honest; think about a time when you were dishonest; How did your dishonesty affect you and the person you lied to?", etc. Then the student sums up what he/she has learned and create a mission statement. After completing the book, a student will have developed a life mission statement based on the 20 statements theyve created in the workbook. Designed as a complete workbook with no additional items necessary. Note: no Biblical content. 196 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    It's easy to see the brilliance of our Creator when you look upon the starry skies or a majestic tree. But when you look at a periodic table? I'll bet most of us (myself included) have rarely been inspired to spiritual thoughts by the sight of one. Of course, that could all change after reading this unique book. Author Richard D. Duncan provides readers an appreciation for both specific elements and their Creator though a discussion of each elements discovery and uses which neatly tie into a biblical application. Volume 1 of the series (I have been assured there is another volume in progress) starts at the very top left-hand side of the periodic table with Hydrogen and continues across the chart offering a two-page mini-lesson on each element. Each two-page spread includes a discussion of the element, its properties and its uses on the left-hand page, along with several bulleted facts relating to its name or discovery. The right-hand page relates the properties and/or uses of the element to a biblical lesson that we can take from the element. A short "quick quiz" follows, with several short-answer and multiple choice questions about the element (answers included at the end of the book). A final "response" closes each lesson and offers a short prayer or thought related to the biblical application. Although the lessons are short, the write-ups on each element are fascinating, especially when science history or uses for the element in the Bible are discussed. While you won't find much in the way of chemical concepts here (oxidation-reduction, electron levels, etc.) this is an easy-to-use, casual study of the elements that be enjoyed by any student of chemistry, or for the whole family to use as a tie-in to a chemistry course taught at any level. The book brought to mind Luke 19:40, where Jesus replies to Pharisees who are criticizing his noisy, exuberant disciples. '"I tell you," he replied, "If they keep quiet, the stones will cry out."' – Jess

    This survey course is intended to be "a journey through the basics of the Christian faith." The program is divided into 30 lessons and assumes a group setting with an instructor and multiple students. The first unit is seven lessons on the Bible, and the next seven are on church history. Four lessons cover the major doctrines of the Christian faith, with the next three discussing the defense of your faith (apologetics). Four lessons discuss other religions and the occult, three discuss our current age (the postmodern culture) and the last two help the student to become a more effective witness.

    The course materials consist of a book with perforated pages and a CD-ROM. Both the instructor pages and the student pages are in this book. Instructor pages give teaching directions, basic material that the teacher should present in class, and sometimes charts or a quiz with answer key. The instructor may want to flesh out the information to be presented in class with additional research. (This will certainly be necessary with the section on other religions, as almost no material is included here.) Student pages contain additional information (different from the information in the teacher pages). The CD-ROM includes PDF's of appropriate maps (also shown in the book) and the student pages.

    As mentioned at the outset, this is a survey course, so the course is covering a lot of ground and not going into much depth. Besides being used as a Sunday School class, the course could serve as a 1-year refresher for a high school student before going off to college. sc, 291 pgs.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this CD-ROM product from eMedia. The program is so thorough and complete, with so many extras. It is designed for someone with no prior knowledge, and seems as though it would be extremely easy to pick up and begin with - very user friendly.

    The program consists of six chapters, each divided into several lessons (165 in all). The first chapter starts out with the basics - how to use the various features of the program, types of guitars, stringing and tuning your guitar, finger positioning, chord reading. After you know all that, you get right into the music. You continue learning chords, which are clearly pictured and well described, with one accompanying song and/or exercise to practice. The chords used are always pictured on the same screen. As you learn more chords, the songs involve more chords and there are practice exercises for changing chords smoothly. After every few chords you learn, there is a quiz and an exercise incorporating them. As you get further into the course, there are lessons to educate you in other aspects of the guitar, such as accents, syncopation, double strumming, and notation. By the end of the sixth chapter, you will be able to play over 50 songs of varying styles, including hymns, blues, classics, rock, and other genres. Most of the songs in the lessons are classic examples, such as "Greensleeves," "Amazing Grace," and "Skip to My Lou," but there are a variety of other songs too, i.e. "Downtown Train," "Rock Steady," and "La Bamba."

    As if these lessons don't sound wonderful enough, there are many additions worth mentioning. First, three different buttons are displayed on many of the screens. One is a picture of a video camera. When you click on this feature, a box pops up with the instructor and his guitar, and he talks and shows you what he is doing. This provides a helpful visual for some of the harder concepts, such as strumming, new chords, accents, and double strumming. Next, there is a button with a person shown speaking. Clicking this button allows you to hear the instructor offer short tips and practical suggestions. The last button is my favorite. The audio button appears by all of the songs and exercises. When you click this, the music is played through slowly so that you know what it sounds like and you can play along with it. The chords flash red as they are played so you can follow along. Sometimes the instructor suggests ways to embellish this feature, such as playing in rounds with the audio clip. Yet another added bonus is an animated fret. When you play the audio clip, a picture of the fret pops up, and the strings and fingers of the chords are highlighted as they are played so you can see what your fingers are supposed to be doing as you play. There is also a chord dictionary in case you want to see all of the chords or look up a particular one.

    Also the program suggests list of songs that you can find on the internet at one site. Each time you learn some new chords, there will be a screen devoted to listing a collection of various songs using only those chords you've learned so far. There are so many additional songs here, I think this was one particularly good addition. If your computer has a microphone, other features will come in handy. You can play your guitar into your computer's microphone and it will record and play back the song so you can hear you play. A new instant feedback feature even highlights notes in green that you play correctly - as you play the song! The microphone will also allow the computer to help you with your tuning. An appendix at the end aids you in a further study of notes, sharps, key signatures, and other little tidbits of information. Is this great or what?

    In summary, the sound quality is extremely good, very clear and easy to understand, and the lessons are incredibly simple and well laid out. The program is designed to use in lesson order, but someone who has some knowledge would be able to skip around and use a specific lesson to work on a practicing a particular skill. System requirements: Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7, 16 MB of RAM and 40 MB of free hard disk space; Mac OSX 10.4 or later, 16 MB RAM, 83 MB of free disk space.

    From the creators of the KidCoder and TeenCoder series comes this ultimate course in digital literacy! The goal of the program is to help middle-to-high-school students develop a foundational understanding of hardware, software, file management, Internet safety, and more. The course is divided into two semesters (about 33 weeks) of material; the first covers basic concepts, including an introduction to types of hardware, software, and popular programs like Microsoft Word, Excel, Google Docs, and more. The second semester delves into more hands-on topics which include social media programs, basic Internet utilities, designing web pages, and creating simple programs.

    At the heart of the course is a simple online interface which tracks student progress and helps organize teachers. Two online access codes are sent out with each copy of the product: one for the student, and one for the teacher. The students have access to several tools for each lesson: Lesson Video, Text, and Quiz. The videos are key to understanding topics and are both animated and narrated to help both visual learners and students learning English as a second language. The automated quizzes ensure students have a good grasp of each concept before moving on and are automatically scored for every student and sent to the teacher for review. Teachers likewise have access to a Teacher Guide, a Quiz Answer Key, and Activity Solution Guides / Files, in addition to syllabi, activity overviews, and chapter walkthroughs. These resources are provided at the teacher's leisureeach can be used by itself, left alone if deemed unnecessary, or integrated with the teacher's own supplementary material.

    The full range of topics covered includes: Fundamentals of Computer Hardware / Software, Operating Systems, Computer Files, Computer Maintenance and Troubleshooting, Computer Networks, Search Engines, Computer Security, Word Processing, Spreadsheet Programs, Presentation Programs, Database Technology, Project Management, Digital Images, Internet Communications, Social Media, Creating Web Pages, Programming Concepts, Digital Logic, and Careers and Professional Skills.

    The course caters to group teaching as well; the online software allows teachers to track each student's scores and progress individually. The program is also age-friendly, allowing multiple students of different middle-and-high-school ages to work together as one class. In addition, it is a moderately fast-paced coursethe stated average workload amounts to roughly 3-5 hours of work per week over 33 weeks, but if this is too rigorous for students or you have younger kids in the class, the course is designed to be self-paced. If you are looking for a full-blown course on digital literacy that caters to a wide range of students, this is certainly one of the best! System requirements: Windows 7/8/10 or Mac OS 10.7 or higher. ~ Stephen

    Note: Requires a laptop or desktop with an internet connection and Microsoft Office (latest version recommended).

    Looking for a solidly Christian and academically complete health and nutrition course for your high schooler? You may have just found it! Although this course was not available for an independent review prior to our catalog printing, it appears this course will meet the academic and value needs of homeschool families. Beginning with an overview of anatomy and physiology, this courses scope includes senses, genetics, macro and micro nutrients, exercise and diet. Emotional issues and mental illness, human value, culture, gender roles, families, socialization, communication skills and conflict resolution skills are also covered. Reproductive anatomy and physiology are covered including accurate illustrations and descriptions. Marriage, sexuality, pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases are discerningly explained, along with alcohol and drug abuse, depression, pornography and other topics necessary for our young people to understand for successful navigation in adulthood. This is handled gently, and respectfully, but parents should evaluate their young adults emotional and spiritual maturity prior to lessons. Over 50 projects are included in the text/student notebook which will not require a lab kit. The publisher states this will not meet a high school science lab credit.

    Unlike other Apologia courses, the Student Notebook is required for this course. Solutions are available online with course purchase. Apologia recommends the course be taken concurrently with their 9th grade Biology. Parents should discern their young person's ability and maturity. This one-year course will meet your transcript needs and prepare your student for college level courses. ~ Deanne

    Includes Student Workbook and Test Booklet.

    Consumable student worktexts contain a mix of practice problems and word problems. Space is provided to work out the problems, but some students may prefer having access to "scratch paper" to work problems, especially at the higher levels. The front of the student worktext includes space to record grades for worksheet pages and tests.

    Consumable test booklets are provided to evaluate student progress. Parents are encouraged to reteach previous lessons if the student does not do well. Mastery is the goal, and lessons build upon one another so that future success is dependent on students really knowing the previous concept.

    Student packs include the consumable student workbook and test booklet.

    Consumable student worktexts contain a mix of practice problems and word problems. Space is provided to work out the problems, but some students may prefer having access to "scratch paper" to work problems, especially at the higher levels. The front of the student worktext includes space to record grades for worksheet pages and tests.

    Consumable test booklets are provided to evaluate student progress. Parents are encouraged to reteach previous lessons if the student does not do well. Mastery is the goal, and lessons build upon one another so that future success is dependent on students really knowing the previous concept.

    This excellent (but optional) companion to the Apologia Biology course provides a place to keep everything together - module notes and lab reports. The introductory information includes a rubric for grading experiments, grade recording charts, parent notes/student notes, and most importantly, a daily schedule (no need for separate lesson plans). The module notes provide a uniform format for completing chapter notes, the On Your Own and Study Guide questions, and an (optional) modular summary. The consistent format is only one of the reasons you might choose this notebook option. Full-color illustrations (ready for labeling) as well as full-color dissection photographs would be other reasons. 604 pgs. spiral-bound

    In the quest to cover a little of everything from a particular time period AND present it at a level that a younger child can understand, most elementary history texts are, well, probably just a bit lacking in the exciting and shall we say “interesting” department. At least, I found it as such when I was much younger, although it led me to do a lot of self-reading to complete the picture in the areas that interested me. Susan Wise Bauer attempts to remedy this difficulty in presenting a chronological history to the younger set using a classical approach to history. The Story of the World is structured around a text and a curriculum guide/activity book that serve as a springboard for your futher history explorations. The readings in the text provide a background of the time period covered, augmented by the use of the guide, which contains review questions, suggestions for supplemental readings, appropriate literature selections, and also map activities, coloring pages, as well as an abundance of projects that span history, art, and science that are sure to excite the student.

    The text itself serves as the starting point and backbone of each unit. Each chapter covers a particular time period, and is placed in chronological order. For example, in Volume One: Ancient Times, Chapter One begins with “The Earliest People” followed by chapters detailing periods of Egyptian, Sumarian, Jewish, Babylonian, Assyrian, Indian, Chinese, African, Egyptian, Phoenician, Greek, Persian, Native American, Roman, Christian, Celt, and Barbarian history. The book goes in strictly chronological order, so one time period of a civilization will be covered, and then a different civilization may be covered, returning to another era of the first civilization later, to encompass a significant historical event of that civilization. Each chapter is further split into smaller, more bite-sized amounts that lend themselves well to a younger attention span. The chapters are presented at a level they will understand, but at the same time, find fairly absorbing. History is presented in more of a story-type format that they will appreciate, and the author emphasizes that the book is not intended to give a complete overview of the time period, but rather to give the student a chronological order of major events and an appreciation and understanding of different cultures while presenting it in a way that will foster an enthusiasm and enjoyment of the subject matter. For example, while not every ruler of a civilization may be named, along with major accomplishments, an overview of the period highlighting important events and rulers, along with details of how the people in the civilizations lived comprise the short chapters. Mythical stories as well as historical fiction-type passages about young children from different cultures are woven into the narrative to stimulate further interest. These almost story-type chapters are meant to be read aloud to younger children, or those with reading difficulty, while good readers and older children can read or take turns reading the chapters aloud.

    When a chapter has been completely read, you and the students then turn to the curriculum manual/actvitiy guide. At the beginning of each chapter in the guide, corresponding page references are given from four recommended supplements Kingfisher History Encyclopedia, The Kingfisher Illustrated History of the World, The Usborne Book of World History, and the Usborne Internet-Linked Encyclopedia of World History. These selections further flesh out the history lessons, particularly for those periods or civilizations where less supplemental reading is available. When all the chapter reading has been accomplished, the next order of business are the reading comprehension-type review questions for each chapter section. Following the questions, the student is asked to summarize the chapter in a few sentences. The author again stresses that important facts be included in this narrative, but not necessarily every single one. A few sample narrations are also supplied for each section. The student’s narrative is then written, illustrated with his/her favorite part of the lesson. The narratives can be collected and put into a loose-leaf binder, to create the student’s own world history. After these activities have been completed, a list of readings chosen to supplement and complement the history lesson are supplied, as well as a following list of corresponding literature suggestions to further flesh out the lesson, with books telling stories from that era. Author, publisher, copyright date, and a sentence summary of each book are given for ease in locating the book.

    Now for some real hands-on work! The activities commence with “Map Work,” where a map of the appropriate area is supplied, and the student identifies and marks pertinent areas, routes, and features. The geography section is normally followed by a coloring page, highlighting some aspect of the history lesson, or some other word activity. Finally, the chapter closes with a selection of projects to do to really “get into” the featured civilization or time period. These may be arts, crafts, writing, or science projects, or just fun supplemental activities. Most require only common household supplies and art supplies such as paints & paintbrushes, boxes, newspaper and waxed paper, self-drying clay, etc. Several projects are provided for each chapter, covering a wide range of activities. These could include anything from building your own hut to making your own cunieform tablets, mummifying a chicken, brick-making, baking an African or Greek feast, purple dye, an erupting volcano, an olympic wreath, a Native American sand painting, a Roman chariot, making paper, and LOTS more. When you’ve covered the chapter content as much as is desired, move on.

    While the breadth of activities and readings may seem overwhelming or time-consuming, keep in mind that not every suggested book needs to be read, and not every single project needs to be completed. (But Mom, can’t we embalm the chicken today?) Spend as much time in an era as suits the students, pacing yourself to cover everything that is of interest. The structure of the curriculum makes it especially easy and enjoyable to use with several children in this age range, although I’m sure the older kids would love to get into it too!

    Volume One was revised in 2006 and now features more illustrations, maps, several timelines and additional parent/teacher notes. The text is paperback, and the Curriculum Guide/Activity Book is a bound paperback. - Jess

    This is the consumable Meeting Book used during the teacher-student "meeting" part of the lesson where concepts are introduced, demonstrated and practiced. If teaching more than one student at the same level, you will only need one meeting book. This is included in the Home Study Kit, but available separately if you need to replace it reuse the program with the next child.
