    The first of four units in the MFW high school program, this one is considered foundational to the rest and covers Bible, history and English and is worth 3 full-year credits (1 credit per subject). The lesson plans are designed for the students to work independently the majority of the week, with a parent-student conference and discussion of topics covered on Fridays. You will need to add math and science to the curriculum (MFW recommends Saxon Math with DIVE CDs for math and Apologia Science) and may also want to consider adding foreign language, logic or other electives. For Bible and history, students will read through the Old Testament along with Taking the Old Testament Challenge. The Old Testament Readings are also central to the ancient history study along with Notgrass Exploring World History. Students will fill in an Ancient History Timeline Book to record events from their reading. There are comprehension questions, map work and service projects as well. In English, the focus is on essay writing, particularly the argumentative essay, and students will write five of these during the year. Literature from the periods covered is also read and analyzed from a Christian perspective. The Limited Edition Package includes Lesson Plans; Ancient Literature Supplement; Ancient History Timeline Book and figures; Daniel Inductive Bible Study for Teens; Unwrapping the Pharaohs; Student Bible Atlas; Exploring World History set; What On Earth Am I Here For?; The Odyssey; The Cat of Bubastes; Bulfinch's Greek and Roman Mythology; New Answers Book; The Iliad; Encyclopedia of the Ancient World; The Tabernacle; Eric Liddell; the Epic of Gilgamesh; Taking the Old Testament Challenge and Journey Through the Bible.

    With more maps and more detail, this is Rand McNally's next step up from the Primary Atlas (#037759). The colorful atlas begins with an overview of map and globe terminology, followed by world maps: a physical map, political map, world land use map, and climate map. Next is a United States political map, plus a section on U.S. regions and a timeline of original settlers and explorers, before moving on to political maps for all seven continents. Simple map legends are included for each map, as well as interesting facts, captioned photos of regional people, animals, or landmarks, and simple timelines/charts/graphs. Each of the maps in this atlas also contains a map question, challenging students to apply their map-reading skills. A glossary and index are provided at the back of the book. 48 pgs. ~ Lisa

    Learn about world animals and their habitats with this book of 15 illustrated maps and over 150 animal stickers. There are maps of all seven continents, plus a few of single countries. The maps are simple physical maps with labeled, white outline shapes of various animals located all over the maps. Students learn by studying the maps and then selecting the correct animal stickers to place in the outline shapes. Each map contains a brief overview of the country/continent's climate and physical features. Also included on each map is a thumbnail world map, showing the particular continent or country highlighted in red. For added interest, each map has a fun text box with information about a particular animal and a challenge to find that animal on the map. A simple map key is located in the front of the book, and easy-to-use grid squares help develop early map reading skills. Index included. ~ Lisa

    Introduce your youngest students to geography with this atlas from Rand McNally. It begins with a section on basic map reading terminology and then proceeds through maps of the United States, World, and all seven continents. The maps featured are colorful, large-print political maps with shaded areas designating mountain ranges. Simple map legends are included for each map, and the margins contain small captioned photos of people, animals, or landmarks from the continents and countries. A basic fact or two about the continent is listed at the top of the page, with some maps containing a "map skills challenge." For example, the Africa map states, "Africa is the warmest continent," and the map skills challenge is "How many rivers can you find on the Africa map?" Index of countries included. 17 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    First published in 1923, this atlas has gone on to become the number-one college reference atlas used in the United States. Probably the most comprehensive and up-to-date atlas of world geography that we sell, this one will meet all your needs – from a basic reference tool for finding countries, capitals, cities, mountains, rivers, and oceans, to a detailed study on, quite literally, hundreds of different aspects of worldwide geography. The atlas is divided into three sections: World Maps, Regional Maps, and Tables and Indexes. The World Maps section is a collection of dozens and dozens of mostly thematic maps, but it also includes a political world map, a physical world map, and three ocean floor maps. The Regional Maps section then looks at each of the continents in turn, as well as the major oceans and polar regions. North America is more closely studied than the others, with 50 different thematic maps of the US providing an in-depth look at the geographic aspects of employment, transportation, climate, and other topics, plus over 130 pages of world reference maps. The final section contains the tables of statistics, glossary of foreign geographical terms, abbreviations and pronunciations of geographic names, 30,000 longitude and latitude locations, and a subject index that no atlas would be without. Complete, colorful, and up-to-date, this atlas is a very easy-to-use resource that will help every reader or student of geography get to know our world. 400 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    The sister book to the National Geographic World Atlas for Young Explorers, this atlas uses the same colorful style of maps and comprehensive coverage that make these atlases the perfect easy reference for young students. All fifty states are given a two-page spread, with full-color physical maps showing major highways, national parks, cities, mountains, lakes, reservations, all the major industries around the state, deserts, rivers, borders, and more. There is also a brief description of the state, along with state facts and some interesting trivia. A two-page spread is also given to the territories administered by the US. The atlas begins with ten thematic spreads covering how to use the atlas, the physical United States, the natural environment, natural hazards, the political United States, population, immigration and minority populations, potential geographic areas where alternative energy can be used, and Washington D.C. A list of facts and figures, a glossary and an index round out the atlas. Full of nothing other than National Geographic standard photographs from each region, locator maps and color coding are used to make this atlas more accessible to all users.

    While this atlas comes in a mini size (4.25" x 5.3"), it still contains an impressive amount of maps and facts about the world. The first third of the book is composed of detailed maps of all the different continents and areas of the world. At first the maps are of entire continents and then they narrow in on specific countries, states, and areas. Standard items like bodies of water, cities, capitals, landforms, regions, etc. are labeled and many maps contain small captions that list historical events that happened in different areas on the map. The rest of the atlas is a "factfile" guide that shares statistics about the 195 countries of the world. For each country, the atlas includes another map of the area and information on geography, climate, people & society, and economy, and stats on date of formation, population, area, density, language, religions, ethnic mix, government, and currency. With 260 detailed maps and full coverage of the world's regions, this handy little atlas is a great reference to have around. 432 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    This book reminds me of one of my favorite ways we used to study the Bible as children. We would read a chapter of the Bible, discuss it, and then each of us would draw a picture of what we thought was the most memorable part of the chapter. However, this Bible story book takes the concept a bit further, and because it is published by How Great Thou Art, would you expect any less? The full-color, hardcover book features 59 of the most well-known Bible stories from the Old and New Testaments. A 15 year-old homeschooler adapted the stories, keeping the facts close to the Bible while adding fun details, dialogue and onomatopoeia ("Thump!" "Swoosh!") that will appeal to children. Chapter and verses references are provided in the Table of Contents so that you can also read the stories out of your family's Bible as well. Several discussion questions are provided at the end of each story to reinforce the facts of the story. Each story ends with an art lesson related to the story, such as drawing a tower that touches the sky and finishing King Nimrod's face after "The Tower of Babel" or drawing Ruth in Boaz's barley field, or drawing the four examples Jesus gave of where the seeds fell in "The Parable of the Sower." The lessons include a variety of activities, from asking children to complete a given "starter" drawing to drawing specific scenes or items mentioned in the story. The illustrations, however, may be my favorite part of the book. Unlike many Bible story books with only one illustrator, this book has had hundreds! Each story is filled with wonderful examples of homeschool student artwork that were inspired by that Bible story. Although some of them follow the art lesson at the end, many of them are scenes of the story, interpreted in a variety of media. I love the range of ages and styles included here; some of the illustrations just make you smile. Making art is a terrific way to remember the Bible story and gives you something you can look back at as the years go by as well. Because the art lessons are not complicated and most involve drawing, few art supplies are necessary and you can do them just about anywhere. In fact, the only supplies that are recommended are colored pencils and a fine point black drawing pen. But you may want to have additional craft materials on hand in case your children are inspired by some of the very original paintings and collages featured in the stories! - Jess

    This Rand McNally Atlas is colorful and appealing for middle-grade students. The atlas begins with a Discoverer's Tools section that introduces students to map reading and terminology such as map projections, directions, grid systems, legends, and symbols. Next is a world maps section with physical, political, climate, environment, and population density maps. The U.S. maps section includes even more types of maps, with physical, political, climate, environment, population density, and time zone maps. A Regions of the United States contains close-up, detailed regional maps along with a narrative overview and captioned photos of landmarks and charts pertaining to unique topics of interest within the region. The text is large and readable, with bold vocabulary words keyed to an index. "Time to Explore" boxes scattered throughout the atlas challenge students to use map reading skills to answer questions. The final section of the atlas, Settlement of the United States, begins with a timeline showing the population growth of our country. Maps showing U.S. population changes are included, such as Native American homelands, routes to the New World, the original thirteen colonies, and immigration patterns. The back of the book includes state tables with statistics (i.e., population, population rank, area in square miles, year admitted to the Union, capital city). A glossary is included. 128 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Roaming around the country to various homeschooling conventions, I've spent my share of time on historic Route 66. However, I've never seen the theme of Route 66 used in such a fun and productive way. Oftentimes Sunday School and Bible classes get in a rut of telling the same basic stories and doing the same activities over and over again. There's no danger of that when using this fun theme, because lessons and activities are provided for every book in the Bible. Students learn about each book (author, setting, etc.), as well as important stories and lessons within them. The book seems intended to be used in a Sunday school setting, with lessons divided into three 12-week units, but it could easily be used for a Bible class with just a student or two, or each activity page could also stand alone and be used to supplement other materials. Each lesson begins with a travel guide for teachers, which includes an overview of the featured book, key verses and stories in the featured book, warm-up questions, and ideas and suggestions to help with lesson planning. The lessons can require fairly small amounts of prep work, or you can go all out with the Route 66 theme; the material is pretty flexible. Three reproducible activity pages are included in each lesson, based on that particular lesson's book of the Bible. Activities can be completed with pencil or markers and include things like crosswords, word searches, hidden pictures, fill in the blanks, short-answer questions, and more. Fuel Up pages have short answer questions challenging students to read specific verses in the Bible to find the answers. Review pages (or Remember Where We've Been? sections) are provided at the end of each unit, which offer cumulative review questions for students to answer alone or in groups. The Route 66 theme helps students feel like they're really going on an adventure as they work their way through the 66 books of the Bible. There are even instructions and reproducible pages for making a Souvenir Scrapbook, which is a creative and fun way to keep track of what they learn. If you're looking for a fun way to educate your child or Sunday School group on each book of the Bible as well as the author, era, purpose, key verse, and the main characters and stories of each book, you should definitely take a look at this book. With all of the different components, your students are sure to get a solid overview of the Bible. By Christian Ditchfield, 192 pgs, pb. ~Rachel

    Here's a Bible that will stand up to daily use and work well for Bible class as well as personal study time. This hardcover Bible includes study resources as well as the full ©2011 text of the New International Version (NIV). Sixteen pages of study references are found in the front of the book and include full color timelines for the Old Testament, Kings & Prophets of Israel & Judah, times of captivity and the periods between the testaments, New Testament, ministry of Jesus, the parables of Jesus, and the miracles of Jesus. At the back of the book you will find 16 pages of full color maps and a 12,000 entry concordance. The Bible text itself is printed in a two-column format with 9-point textbook type. At the start of every Bible book is an introduction and an outline that overviews the book. Chapters are subdivided, titles are in bold print and footnotes found at the bottom of the pages.

    There are some differences with the ©2011 NIV from earlier editions of this version. Approximately 95% of the text is unchanged from the 1984 edition, but there is some updated language such as "ancestor" for the word "forefather" and "flesh" for "sinful nature." If you are familiar with and like the NIV, this Bible would be a durable option for your students or even for you. ~ Donna

    Any description of this atlas has to include a suggestion to view the sample pages online. After all, a picture is worth 1000 words! Looking at this atlas is a visual (and informational) treat. Each state (and Washington D.C.) covers a two-page spread. It has the appearance of looking like a desk blotter; with a journal open showing a map and a brief overview of the state. Surrounding the map are notes, dates, facts, illustrations and trivia "paper clipped" or "taped" in place. Readers are introduced to all of the basics: state birds, flowers, seals, flags, statistics, quarters, events, people, and much more. The maps are topographical with major cities and Interstate highways marked. Thematic maps show farm resources, expansion, population, climate and regions; and the paperback atlas ends with a state almanac and a list of geography terms defined. – Zach

    In a remarkably fluid manner, this reference shows the political, religious, and trade changes occurring in Europe, North Africa and the Near East from A.D. 362 to A.D. 1483. There are 47 maps in all, arranged in six sections. Each section features five to six maps, spaced in intervals of about 40 years which show the political boundaries of the area at that time. The last map or two included in each section depicts the territories of Christianity and Islam, and various other maps may also be included that show trade routes and cities of the period, population of various regions, or further exploration of the world. Each two-page spread consists of the map on the right-hand page, with the left-hand page providing a detailed commentary on the changes that are reflected on the map. While the commentary may be a little advanced for younger students, the maps provide an easier-to-understand visual look at the known world of the period, and could be used as visuals for a wider range of students with some explanation. The maps themselves feature black-and-white land territories and blue bodies of water. Various shading patterns make it easy to distinguish the territories of different kingdoms and peoples. Additional notes and an index are also included. A fairly compact guide, this would make an excellent supplemental resource to any in-depth study of medieval history, where students can actually "see" the shift from Roman to early modern times. - Jess

    As far as biblical atlases go, this one really caught my attention. Its clean, uncluttered layout, and colorful, clearly labeled maps combine with numerous photographs and illustrations to deliver a uniquely vibrant look at the lands described in the Bible. The 75 maps explore biblical history from the time of Abraham to the Revelation, while the accompanying texts and charts help to explain what the reader is looking at. A great companion to any Bible study, and an intriguing book to simply browse through. 175 pgs, pb. – Zach

    While this atlas has a fairly unassuming look to it, and a price-point to match, it actually contains a stunning array of information. At 112 pages, you might just get more for your money out of this atlas than from most. A helpful highlighted tab section printed across the top of each open spread tells you exactly what you are looking at. The first tab, of course (after the table of contents), is how to use the atlas; the next tab contains the legend/projection/scale. Then comes latitude and longitude, map types, the solar system map, the world physical map, the world political map, the world's ocean floors, earth dynamics (earthquake and volcano zones), geographic features (the only section I found that refers to "millions of years"), climate, vegetation/land cover, environmental issues, population, population issues, languages/literacy/religions, land use/GDP/employment, mining/energy, information sharing, and transportation. The continent section spends the most time on North America, with maps detailing the following: political, physical, population, land use and resources, climate, and vegetation. The US is looked at in detail through the following: state flags, physical and political maps and facts, climate, vegetation, land use, energy and minerals, transportation, population, and income. Canada and Mexico both have close-ups showing political and physical country maps, with flags and crests. The other continents have the following maps: political, physical, population, GDP, land use, climate, vegetation, and environmental issues. This atlas gives you a really thorough overview of the world using thematic, political, and physical maps and deals with the world mostly at the continental level. The only regions that are looked at more closely are the US, Canada, and Mexico. A very colorful, easy-to-use resource. – Zach

    Not all atlases are created equal. Kids will actually love this atlas, with its interesting, easy-to-read text and multitude of 3-D pictures. Look into the wide open mouth of a piranha, stare down from the top of the Eiffel Tower, walk a razor-sharp mountain edge in the Himalayas, check out the towering inside view of the magnificent Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, bungee jump from the Kawarau Bridge in New Zealand, to name but a few of the pictures that leap off the page in 3-D. Continent by continent, students will see 2-D political and 3-D physical maps, geographical facts and figures, and tons of pictures (both 2- and 3-D) - because, after all, this is an atlas and tour. A fun book to explore, this 94 page hardcover comes with 2 pairs of 3-D glasses. – Zach

    (description by publisher - stay tuned for our own!)

    When Jesus spoke to his disciples just prior to his resurrection, He told them that the Old Testament is about Himself and His Gospel (Luke 24:27; 44-47). As we read the Old Testament, we are confronted with a massive ancient history, spanning over thousands of years. Hundreds of names, dozens of foreign nations, laws, sacrifices, and feasts all comprise the tome of ancient Scripture. What does this have to do with Christ and His Gospel? Volume 1 of The Bible in the Ancient World will provide your students with a study of Old Testament history and geography, and how these background details are a necessary part of understanding the Gospel. In 18 easily completed lessons, the student is introduced to a full layout of Biblical History as they read through Scripture, background lessons, and complete map projects. Additionally, dozens of photos from Bible lands are presented to the student along the way. In completing this curriculum, your student will gain a firm grasp on how the historical and geographical details of the Old Testament are essential components of that which Jesus says, "concerns himself."

    This study of the book of Matthew takes a unique approach. Rather than focusing on a chapter-by-chapter reading, Matthew is studied from the perspective of the Kingdom of God. Part 1 covers Announcing the Kingdom of God - expecting the kingdom, proclaiming the kingdom, living the kingdom and proof of the kingdom. Matthew chapters 1-10 are covered. Part 2 covers Delaying the Kingdom, with a look at the hostility and refusal of the Kingdom of God and finally the accomplishment of the Kingdom. Matthew chapters 11-29 are studied.

    Using a workbook approach, the study incorporates Scripture reading, commentary, and fill-in-the-blank questions. Worth noting, there are not any daily lesson breaks, any breaks are topical. Since this is a multi-age workbook, parents are given the ability to plan lessons in a way that best meets the needs of their children. All materials come in PDF format on a CD-ROM and are printable for immediate family or single classroom use. No specific Bible version is recommended, although I would suspect a word for word or thought for thought translation would be preferable to a paraphrase. ~Deanne

    An engaging online version of the Veritas Bible courses providing (through an activation code) a multi-sensory, interactive format with parallel content but adding exciting games and videos. The emphasis is still on memorizing names, dates and places; learning how God worked in early biblical times in order to provide a solid foundation for more in-depth studies in later years. The student can work at his/her own pace while the program keeps track of things, recording grades from worksheets and tests. ~ Janice

    So much of the Bible deals with geography: people coming from here and going there; this land being given to or taken from these people; conquerors taking over, empires crumbling, and missionary journeys of the apostles - it's a lot to try and visualize these changes and movements. However, when you have a book with 132 color maps, 140 color photographs, and concise text explaining the geographical and historical context, the task of understanding biblical geography becomes much simpler. The atlas describes first the biblical setting of the ancient Near East, the natural regions of Palestine, and life in ancient Palestine, and then goes through the Old Testament period and the New Testament period through to the third century A.D. With brief articles about geographic regions and cultures, historical charts, and indexes to help you find people and places, this is a very comprehensive Bible atlas. ~ Zach
