    Have you ever stopped to realize that a comprehensive understanding of the earth, its structure, and its inhabitants are a necessary foundation for interacting meaningfully with our increasingly global-minded world? Taking an overview approach, the North Star Geography course covers geography skills (reading maps, using geographic tools, cartography, surveying, and navigation), physical geography (geology, meteorology, oceanography, ecology, hydrology, and astronomy), and human geography (sociology, culture, religion, transportation, agriculture, government, and economics). Bright Ideas Press and world geography – what a great idea! Student Reader plus Companion Guide CD-ROM (activities: maps, hands-on, research options, quizzes/tests) – what a great idea! Quality content, Biblical worldview, and user-friendliness all rolled up into one package – what a great idea!

    Obviously, the Student Reader is the heart of the course. Each of the sixteen lessons provides 15-20 pages of reading text, full-color illustrations, photos, sidebar articles, and maps. Lessons are divided into teaching segments which are both highly readable and interesting. The organization lends itself to flexibility, and the course could be done over one year (two weeks per lesson), two years (four weeks per lesson), or even one semester (one week per lesson – a bare bones approach). Vocabulary words are in bold with definitions provided in the glossary at the end of the text. The Reader concludes with a reference list that provides options for further study.

    The accompanying Companion Guide CD-ROM (pdf files) provides both basic and "extra" activities in addition to all content from the Reader. It's these pdf files that will allow you to tailor the course for high school, for junior high, or for a combination of ages. Families may make photocopies or print pages as needed, but classrooms and co-ops should contact the publisher for a multiple-use license. Depending on the course time-frame you choose, you will probably have to do some selection of activities, as there is a wealth provided.

    • • Hands-On Activities – there is lots of variety here – some short and simple, some more involved. Materials lists are provided when necessary (and tend to be easy-to-get items).
    • • Build Your Own Atlas – there's a segment for each lesson that includes labeling outline maps, completing fact files, and creating a set of political, physical, and thematic maps. Outline maps are provided but a good atlas as a reference is helpful (i.e. Wondermaps or Atlas of World Geography).
    • • Note-Taking Pages – each lesson has a set of 10 questions taken from the text that serve as lesson review and a study guide for the quizzes.
    • • Memorization Lists – a list of 198 countries, 70 regions and physical features to learn – roughly 16 items per lesson.
    • • Research Questions – a set of questions for each continent which encourage the student to conduct his own research (answers included).
    • • Quizzes and Tests – quizzes for each lesson (based on note-taking questions and map work). A final exam includes questions taken from all 16 of the lessons (answer keys and grading rubrics included).
    • • Graphic Organizers - can be used for all types of studies – world/continent, country, culture, regional geography, and government fact files.

    Homeschool geography courses have tended to be research frameworks that can be used by multi-age students and over several years. While having lots of advantages for families they require planning, preparation, and, often, outside resources. North Star takes a different approach providing a very solid base of textual information but giving lots of options for additional activities and research. It provides all necessary forms and pages, requiring only a good world atlas to accompany the course. ~ Janice

    Some of the highlights of this original Busy Bible are lifting the numbered flaps of the earth to see each day's creations, Joseph's coat of many colors, helping Ruth gather grain, unzipping the great fish to find Jonah, setting up a nativity scene, and playing the Good Samaritan. When children are finished playing, they can Velcro the book shut and place it back in its clear carrying case, which features a snap close and a handle for easy transport.

    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

    This popular book by Jane Straus is both a reference guide for the rules of grammar and punctuation, but also a workbook that provides exercises to review those rules. The first 60 pages of the book contain the most common rules of grammar and punctuation. Topics include subject and verb agreement, pronouns, modifying parts of speech, problems with prepositions, fragments, commas, semicolons, parentheses, hyphens, dashes, capitalization, writing numbers, and much more-basically all the grammar rules you need to know in high school and college. The middle section of the book has over 60 pages of rules for commonly confused words like who vs. whom, that vs. which, good vs. well, etc. Along with each rule, there are one or two examples so students can see the rule put into practice. The final part of the book contains numerous quizzes (2 sets of exercises for each grammar topic or punctuation mark), as well as a grammar pretest, a grammar mastery test, and a punctuation, capitalization and writing numbers pretest and mastery test. The pretest and mastery tests given are great for before and after evaluation, and the exercises for each topic ensure that students know how to use the rules they are learning. Exercises generally prompt students to find errors in sentences, rewrite sentences, pick the correct word for the sentence, or identify parts of a sentence. These review methods are probably more effective at incorporating the rules into real life than multiple choice or matching exercises found in other books. Answers for all the exercises are included in the book. This is a great quick reference book with effective tests and exercises, and it is also well organized, practical, and easy-to-use. Reproducible. 201 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Like the other terrific books in the Painless series, this one endeavors to make learning easier and more enjoyable, without skipping out on any of the "meat." We begin with a description of government in general and a comparative look at the founding father's view of democracy versus how it actually operates in America today. We then learn about the Constitution and how it forms the basis for our government, civil liberties and civil rights, the legislative, executive and judicial branches of the federal government, our election system, political parties, and much more. The book also includes discussion questions and quizzes, to use either as self-evaluation, or for more formal assessment. Easy to use, and enjoyable to read, this would make an excellent supplement to an American history program, or a great introductory-level read before starting a heavier-weight government course in high school. Answer key included. - Jess

     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

    A great book for the beginning stargazer! Authored by H.A. Rey (of Curious George fame), the book starts with the more well-known constellations, introducing and naming them and showing you the constellation both with, and without, lines connecting the stars. Also, it shows you the names of the bigger stars, and which constellation they are in. Quizzes are given after several constellations, and "sky views" show you the sky from the north and south at different times in the year. These pages give you plenty of practice picking out constellations on the page before you move outside for the real thing. It also helps you to find out exactly what months, days, and times a certain constellation will be visible. Stories about constellations are fun to read and make the constellations easy to remember. The sun and planets are also covered, and you learn what planets you can expect to see from earth, and when. Soon, you'll be ready for your own trip to outer space! - Megan

    If you are planning on doing Latina Christiana I with your children this coming year, here is a great opportunity to study the Latin words you'll be learning as vocabulary roots as well, reinforcing the word meanings in both places! Of course, even if you're not studying Latin concurrently, this book offers a strong root-based vocabulary course that examines Latin roots and some Greek roots as well. Each lesson presents a group of roots, prefixes, and suffixes to learn which correspond to the order of lessons in Latina Christiana I. Roots, prefixes and suffixes are introduced with their meanings, and are also clearly labeled with an "R", "P" or "S." Words that contain these parts are listed below in shaded boxes, and meanings are also provided for these words along with additional explanation or notes that are helpful. After the meaning has been given, a sentence with a blank is provided where the student can see how the word is used in context. Some lessons also contain a continuation of a story with blanks here and there, where students must supply the appropriate root-based word they have studied to complete the story. There are challenging review quizzes at the end of every lesson, which test students' knowledge of definitions, prefix meanings, suffix meanings, root meanings, and even the differences between a word's meaning in Latin and the word's meaning in English! Context Quizzes are also provided periodically, where students fill in the blanks in sentences by using words from the word bank above, gathered from several different lessons. There is no separate teacher's guide, so occasionally, teacher notes are referenced in the margins and explained at the end of the lesson. Complete answer keys are provided at the end of the book, along with alphabetical lists of all words introduced, words by prefix, words by suffix, root words, prefixes and suffixes all indexed by lesson number. With no fancy layout or graphics and a rigorous examination of roots, prefixes and suffixes, this a solid choice for root-based vocabulary study. 192 pgs, pb. – Jess

    This reproducible lab resource manual contains 60 labs which are referenced in the teacher guide, but will correlate with many other high school chemistry courses as well. Pick and choose labs that correlate well with your chemistry program. Each lab includes a materials list, procedures, and questions. Teacher notes, post-lab quizzes, and answers are included. This manual features your "standard fare" labs but also covers some of the more interesting applications of chemistry, such as photography, glass manipulation, and papermaking. These labs should be used to reinforce concepts that have already been taught. Please note that it was written for a high school lab and will require a significant amount of lab equipment and chemicals as well. A comprehensive materials list is provided at the beginning of the book. All in all, they're great labs, but will require some investment to do on your own. Consider this one for a co-op class as well! ~ Anh

    Subtitled "Mastering the Paragraph," this course teaches students how to write nine different types of paragraphs: descriptive, definition, narrative, process, compare/contrast, cause/effect, analogy, defending a position, and literary character analysis. As well as learning these different types of writing, students will also learn to evaluate paragraphs critically, the way teachers do. The text is set up to be a 36 week course, which includes cyclical lessons for the different styles of paragraph writing, a few introductory chapters on sentences, formal writing guidelines, the purpose of writing, writing process overviews, and a final test week. The book also lists outlines for a slower, two-year schedule and an accelerated schedule of 20 weeks.

    How is writing in each paragraph style taught? A three-week rotation begins with students constructing an assigned paragraph, progressing to researching and preparing notes for a timed-write session in the second week of class, and finally, correcting and editing the paragraph from week one. The lessons are clearly laid out, with plenty of examples to illustrate the type of writing being taught. The answer key/test booklet is extremely helpful to have, as it contains answers for all of the daily assignments, as well as quizzes and a final exam. Another bonus to the course is its author, Shari Barrett, with a wealth of experience in the subject area and in the homeschool realm, having taught her own children at home since the 1980s, and other chidren as well. She holds a degree in secondary education, a passion for writing, and a real desire to teach - now that's a great combination! ~ Zach

    As the story begins, we meet Mole, who grows tired of his thorough spring cleaning and can't resist a break to enjoy the spring weather above his den. He ambles along, enjoying the sunshine and the busyness of the other animals until he comes to the river, which entrances him with its sights ands sounds; he has never seen a river before. Water Rat finds him in this state, introduces himself, and they instantly become friends. Rat then invites Mole on a picnic, where he is introduced to Rat's other river-dwelling friends. From that point on, Mole accompanies his river friends on all sorts of adventures, from a venture in the Wild Wood to see Mr. Badger, to an ill-fated road trip with Mr. Toad's gypsy cart, to a mission to stop Mr. Toad from tearing up the highways and scattering frightened animals with his new motor car. A delightful, whimsical read where each animal has a most proper and unique personality, this is a great read-aloud! Unabridged versions; please note there is a word or two which may be offensive. - Jess

    DK offers another in the line of First Encyclopedias to encourage young learners. Divided by the geologic time periods, this book presents dinosaurs in chronological order – Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. The book is rounded out with sections on other forms of life, fossils, and the end of the dinosaurs. Every page is filled with illustrations and bite-sized pieces of information. At the bottom of each two-page spread, there is a question and answer about one of the creatures found on those pages. Each section of pages has color-coding at the bottom, and special sections throughout the book encourage readers to look more closely at the pages – “picture detective” encourages you to find specific things on the page and “weird or what” gives some type of interesting fact. The back of the book includes activities and a glossary. Another great dinosaur resource from DK! 136 pgs, hc. ~ Donna

    If you have a child who is interested in learning to program, but is not experienced or old enough to dedicate themselves to a full-blown programming study, this book is a great starting point. The focus is on simplicity: no downloads, no additional software, and no prior experience needed. All programming in the course is done online at an MIT Scratch-based Internet site. Throughout the book, kids will learn very basic programming skills, beginning with making a cat move across a virtual stage. From there, kids learn how to perfect their program, add features to it, and most importantly, debug it! Every instruction comes with full-color illustrations of how kids programs (and the result) should look to make sure every step is understood. All important concepts, like looping to repeat parts of a program, are thoroughly explained in easily understandable terms. Capping everything off is a wonderful HTML and CSS tutorial for creating an offline website, complete with their game and anything else they want to add! 64 pages. Spiral-bound.

    Making movies can be a little intimidating, so an easy-to-understand guide could be your best friend through the process. This book, while a little text heavy for younger filmmakers, is more surface level than the other film books we sell, which can be really great for someone looking to get their feet wet without having to learn a lot of jargon. This book is extremely kid friendly in giving handy tips to work around aspects perhaps out of the film makers control (actor skill and age, set design, gear, budget, etc.). Its more of a Learn by Doing book rather than a detailed look at the film industry, which has its own pros and cons depending on your childs learning style and your goals. The graphics are really fun and engaging, and the information is accessible to middle school age children. 63 hardcover spiral-bound pages. Laura

    A dry erase board with an attitude! This white, dry-erase paddle is a super convenient size. It is big enough to use for drawings: 8” x 6 5/16”. The handle is 1 1/2” x 3 3 1/4" long with rounded corners and is also dry erase. The chipboard paddle is sturdy enough to be placed in a support and used as a sign. Only one side is dry erase. It would be great used in a group setting, as a way to add some pizzazz to oral discussions or quizzes, or to write answers as part of a game. ~ Ruth

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

    Customize your 8" Time Timer by removing the frame, adding one of the 2 blank faces in this kit, and adding the vinyl stickers to show your activity. For example, if you want your student to get ready for bed herself, you can set the timer with stickers at time increments showing what to do: clean room, take bath, brush teeth, read, turn off light, sleep. You could also write on the blank face with wipe-off markers and have your student work independently for an hour showing 15 minute (for example) increments on math homework, spelling words, reading history and reading for fun. You get the idea: this a very flexible tool. It's great for visual learners because as you turn the knob, the time appears in red and your student can see time pass when the red disappears. Comes with 2 blank faces, 110 1cm square vinyl stickers, and directions. ~ Sara

    Five poster-size charts come in different colors (red, purple, blue, orange, green). Each chart measures 18” x 24”, has 36 rows (alternating color/white) and 25 columns. They look like a page from a teacher’s grade book where you write the students’ names down the left side, assignments across the top and a grade in each square. In a classroom, you could use one a month to show homework assignments (useful when students are absent), good behaviors, class job assignments, books read and such. Use them in a Sunday School where students are to learn Bible verses or demonstrate behaviors. Homeschoolers can use them as chore charts, activities/schedules, behavior, books children have read, verses to memorize, etc. I like the large format: great for a visual learner to see their progress. Not laminated. ~Sara

    Designed for the serious student of God, this awe-inspiring study focuses on the God-head and what it means to magnify His Majesty. Beginning with the knowledge of God, you will dig deep into the nature of God, the attributes of God, the History of Christ, the Person of Christ, and the Holy Spirit. A recommended reading list is included with aligned application activities to expose the student to the important works of great men of God, like A.W. Tozer, Thomas Watson, C.H. Spurgeon and many others.

    Consumable softcover Student Manual contains introductory reading assignments, charts/diagrams and outlines corresponding to the teacher's lecture, inductive study questions completed independent of class time, application activities, and a glossary. The Teacher Manual on CD contains 35 lessons, weekly schedules for three-, four-, or five- day per week Bible classes, learning objectives, teaching strategies, optional scripture memorization plan, weekly quizzes and unit tests (answer keys included), and reduced student pages with answers. While designed for upper level students, I suspect many adults will be brought to their knees as they study the fathomless topic of the God-head. I personally was overwhelmed by the complexity of the One I call my Lord and Savior as I read through this book. ~ Deanne
