    Games are the perfect format to learn geography, and this one is especially simple and effective. Similar to the Timeline games from the same company, each player holds four cards and tries to place them correctly in relation to the cards already on the table. In this edition, each card features a country. The front of the card shows the country name and a fitting illustration, the back of the card contains the same picture along with four pieces of relevant information: the country's population, pollution output, gross domestic product, and land area. Players decide which characteristic to play by, flip one card up in the middle, and then take turns trying to place their country cards correctly around the ones on the table. Once a player has selected a spot for their card, they turn it over to view the information and see if they were right. Correctly placed cards stay flipped up on the table, wrongly placed cards are discarded and players draw a new card from the deck. As you can see, the more cards that are on the table, the harder it becomes to place a new card. The first player to place all of their cards wins. A great game for learning about countries and compiling tidbits of knowledge! 2-8 players, 15 minutes playing time, and the 110 cards are packaged in a nice little tin. If you enjoy this one, try Cardline: Animals too! – Steph

    What lives longer a toucan or a warthog? Like the Timeline games by the same company, your job is to place your cards correctly in relation to the cards already on the table. Each player is dealt four cards, with a beautiful illustration of an animal on the front, and the same illustration on the back along with three important details: the animal's size, weight, and lifespan.

    In Dinosaurs, players are challenged to place cards by length or weight, so this deck is compatible with Animals if you are playing with one of those characteristics. Please note that this deck includes evolutionary content.

    Players choose which of the three characteristics to play by, flip one card over in the playing area so the information is visible, and then take turns trying to place their cards on the right places around the ones on the table. Once you think you have your card placed correctly, turn it over to check if you were right. Correctly placed cards stay information side up, wrongly placed cards are discarded and players draw a new card. As you can tell, the more cards on the table, the harder it is to place new cards! The first player to run out of cards wins. Quick to learn and easy to play, you also can't help but learn some new facts! This is a great game to play with people of all ages with no big advantages to older players. We pulled this one out last time Grandma and Grandpa were here, and out of all three generations, our 7-yr old won! 2-8 people can play, rounds take about 15 minutes, and the 110 cards are packaged in a nice little tin. If you enjoy this one, try Cardline: Globetrotter for geography! Steph

This game comes with its own cards, but any Timeline set can be integrated for game play. 2-10 players, 30+ minutes playing time.

    Through a broad selection of ancient, classical, Biblical and modern poetry, this guide introduces this symbolic world as appealing, accessible and understandable to anyone. Each poetic device is taught by highlighting a unique poem and its poet. Activities like timelines, puzzles, games, and poetry journals reinforce learning. At each unit’s end, students review all previous concepts and then practice the devices learned. Unit 1 teaches structure and rhyme scheme (including various rhymed lines, shaped, villanelle, free verse, and sonnets). Unit 2 covers epic, ode, ballad, pastoral devotional, narrative, and 3 types of humorous poems. Unit 3 teaches anaphora, refrain, rhyme, consonance, alliteration, onomatopoeia, symbolism, personification, apostrophe, metaphor and simile. The free digital Companion Guide on the publisher’s web site includes reproducible Student Reviews, coloring pages, game templates and a lesson text work space (rather than writing in the text), and text answer key. 8 1/2”x 11 1/4”, 255 pgs, hc. ~ Ruth

    An excellent supplement for hands-on learners, this CD-ROM containing printable PDF files will bring a fresh enthusiasm to your history studies. The Guide Book Text introduces the "travel" itinerary, including tips and a planner so you can prepare ahead of time for the 25 lessons (called Stops). Each Stop includes fact filled, engaging readings which are created to be all you need for a compact or supplementary study. Several of the 'stops' also offer more than one project allowing you and your children options along the way. While some of the projects will require students to research further, others have all the necessary information provided.

    Activities vary and include creative writing, recipes, mapping activities, timelines, games, notebook activities, crafts, and lapbooks. Masters, detailed instructions, illustrations, and photos of finished products are all included to fully equip the parent for a successful hands-on history experience. An additional resource section offers a variety of books, videos, music ideas, bibliography of nonfiction books and websites, and research projects to accompany the projects if parents/students want to become further immersed into the Middle Ages! Reproducible for immediate family use only. ~Deanne

    Scrapbooking, card making, timelines, vocabulary games, name tags, bookmarks, art class, Sunday school, day care – there are so many things you can use a handy paper cutter for! Scissors have their place, but when you need something straight and FAST you really do need one of these. It is not the guillotine-type of paper cutter, but a sliding blade. Fits up to 15" sheets, with a fold-out arm for measuring and keeping the paper squared up. The sliding blade is in a channel and will cut card stock or regular paper easily; one replacement blade is included. A special feature of this model is that you have to push down pretty firmly on the blade to come into contact with the paper. This is easy for an adult to do, but not for a child, making it safer to use around kids. The plastic frame is heavier duty than the ones I have from the craft store. Also, the button with the blade is on a track and does not fall off. I had to work to get it off and back on again – also a good safety feature! ~ Sara

    Volume Two picks up where Story of the World Volume One left off, and it tells the fascinating story of the “Dark Ages,” from the fall of Rome through the Renaissance. This volume has been written very similarly to the other also, with a very readable text, appropriate for young children, told in a clear and engaging style. Each of the many chapters is relatively short, and broken up into smaller chunks that are the perfect length for curling up together and reading aloud. Also like the preceding book, this story of history doesn’t limit itself to a dry, white-bread-without-the-crusts retelling of a primarily European history, instead it is a rich, whole wheat blend of European, Indian, Chinese, Australian, Arabic, Japanese, Jewish, Mongolian, Turkish, African, Russian, and American history during the period, providing the young student with a much more complete view of what was going on all around the world during that intriguing time period. To cover every event in each of these diverse histories would take a whole library, however, and just as Susan Wise Bauer tells us in her first volume, use this volume as a springboard to more detailed readings about any events that you and the children find interesting and want to learn more about. A timeline and an index are included at the back.

    Like its predecessor, the Activity Book corresponds chapter-by-chapter with the text from the Story of the World readings, and the sections and activities are well-organized and easy to implement. Each chapter begins with review questions for the book. Narration exercises are also included, so that the child may write or dictate to you a summary of what they learned. A list of books for additional reading follows, each with a concise summary and an approximate reading level to help you find those most appropriate for your child’s ability and interest. Corresponding literature, consisting of more "story-like" volumes such as cultural tales and myths are also featured to liven up your history reading, lending a little more interest to those lovers of fiction. An excellent range of activities follow the reading lists, including map work, a coloring page, and projects, which include art, crafts, games, and other more "involved" activities. An abundance of opportunities for "beyond-the-book" learning about here, but as the author mentioned in the activity book for Vol. 1, you should not feel pressured to read every book and complete every activity - history studied in this manner should be a fun and enjoyable journey for all involved, not an endless checklist of items you "have to" complete to pass a test. These courses lend themselves very well to family study, and a lot of the activities would be much more enjoyable with at least a couple siblings or friends. Fortunately, Susan Wise Bauer has anticipated this, and has denoted chosen activities with a "C" to highlight its use as a good co-op or classroom activity. All in all, this looks like an very well-rounded, extremely enjoyable, and solidly chronological approach to history

    The text is available spiral-bound in the first edition or in paperback or hardcover in the revised version. the Activity Book is a bound paperback and is the revised version.

    This book covers it all, from the dawn of history right up to the year 2000, for all the major civilizations, all the rulers, and all the events in world history. Pages are filled with clear, interesting accounts of historical events, realistic reconstructions of scenes, and tons of incredible photographs. More than 100 charts and maps are included, allowing you to see exactly where events took place. Besides being an intriguing book to read, this is also your link to world history on the web. After reading about a subject, go online; every link leads you to a website where you can read additional information, watch video clips, play games, see photos, and use other unique website features to experience "virtually" all of world history. I was never much for history, but I wish I had this book when I was younger; these websites look really intriguing. For a study of the ancient world you can get virtual tours of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, a virtual walking tour of Rome and Athens, learn to speak Ancient Greek, write in hieroglyphics, take interactive tours of museums, explore the Valley of Kings in Egypt and learn about the pharaohs buried there and their tombs through photos and panoramic movies, view profiles of famous Romans and Greeks, explore a clickable Roman marketplace, and loads more. Some sights are interactive, where you can, for example, reenact the Battle of Hastings, and some are treasure troves of information, maps, timelines, and diagrams.

    Note: The first 100 or so pages of the book discuss the "Prehistoric World" (starting 4,550 million years ago with the Big Bang and proceeding to 12,000 years ago when the last ice age came to an end). This section outlines evolution and likely contains objectionable material. However, the rest of the sections (Ancient World, Medieval World, Last 500 Years) are more factual and make up for the first. A colorful, captivating book. 416 pages. Stephanie

       Projects are just a natural fit with social studies, but coming up with project ideas can be time consuming for a teacher/parent. Get kids interacting with history in fun and creative ways with these 25 projects you can do with a minimum of art/craft supplies (scissors, glue, colored pencils, rubber bands, file folders, craft sticks, boxes and resealable plastic bags.) That’s the entire supply list! Students follow clear instructions to complete the projects. At the end of each creation is a self-evaluation and an assessment rubric for the instructor. It is very easy to use. It’s a great way to get kids to learn following step-by-step instructions too! Some of the projects include: an origami caterpillar with information on each flap, a rubber band book, a shape book, matchbook report, a biography hanger, and loads more. There are enough objective tasks that do not require a student to be super creative, but the creative kids can still put their own spin on the products they create. Oh, and for the non-creative adult, you can do this one! ;-)   ~ Sara

      Math is used in every aspect of life and there is no exception for horse lovers. This workbook shows students how to apply math concepts to working with horses daily. Intended as a supplement for 4th or 5th grade, this workbook is full of real-world story problems that will invite the horse lover in your life to also love math.

      This isn’t a systematic presentation of math concepts. Sections are arranged per the horse information, not the math. For example, the first chapter is titled A Day in the Life and is about telling time (timelines) and doing time problems. The student is asked to draw hands on clocks to show specific times and math problems that ask the student how long an event might take or how long it took to complete a task. There is no instruction on how to do the problem; it is assumed that the student will already know this. A Trip to the Tack Store is about money. Horse Science and Stable Management and Sports include addition, multiplication, and measurement. Horse Facts and Math Games and Things to Make and Do, give horse lovers an opportunity to apply what they have learned in the book – work through a math maze, crack the race code, learn some horse history, make your own hay net, make your own fly fringe, make horse cookies, and more. Pages with math problems to work provide work space and answers are found at the back of the book.

      Level 1 is the first in a three-book series that is in progress right now. The book is 175 pages, and spiral bound, for ease of use. For more math activities, students can join the Horse Lovers Math Club at horseloversmath.com. Combine the real-world of horses with math application that is sure to please the horse lover in your family. ~ Donna

    Fourth in the A Child's Geography series, this one or two semester course studies the vast and tiny kingdoms that made up Western Europe, along with the modern day countries of Western Europe. Picking up where the A Child's Geography Volume 3: Explore the Classical World (#007672) ended, this book explores the tumultuous times between the Classical era and the Renaissance. While having a basic knowledge of the Classical period is helpful in understanding the nuances of the Middle Ages, it is not necessary to complete the other volumes in the series before embarking on this journey.

    Written in a similar style to the preceding volumes, history and geography are taught with a living book approach that weaves together engaging text and vibrant photographs and graphics. Students will truly feel as if they are walking in the footsteps of the great minds from the medieval world like Charlemagne, Ferdinand and Isabella, Joan of Arc, Johannes Gutenberg, and Martin Luther while exploring Spain, Portugal, France, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the tiny kingdoms: Andorra, Monaco, Liechtenstein and Luxembourg.

    While the textbook is a standalone resource for readings and narration exercises, the author has provided a website link to download additional activities. This includes timelines for each chapter, maps to label (and completed maps), hands- on activities that include games and craft projects, recipes, supplemental reading resources, prayer guide and much more. Additional links are scattered throughout the text which provide media resources on a variety of topics. Chapters include bold vocabulary words with a glossary in the back. 240 pgs, SC. ~ Deanne

    There can be no doubt that Bright Ideas Press understands homeschoolers and knows what we are looking for in terms of educational experiences. And it’s all here in this music appreciation course. Easy to use with minimal teacher prep, designed for a one-year study arranged into 32 weekly lessons, and adaptable for multiple children of various ages (just like your family!). You see what I mean! Add to this a determined effort to recognize the impact that Christian faith and the church has had on composers and their music, and you’ll begin to understand the benefits of this study.

    Musical periods (ancient to middle ages, renaissance, baroque, classical, romantic, and contemporary) and biographies of specific composers (26 ranging from Vivaldi, Handel, and Bach to Scott Joplin, George Gershwin and John Williams) are covered in the textual information provided in the lessons with mapwork and timeline activities. Specific listening recommendations are outlined for each composer and time period. A strong aspect of this program is the effort to show the interrelationship between different composers as well as historical events.

    You can expect to spend three days on a lesson, each of which begins by listening to recommended selections. Other parts of the first day include reading through the textual component, filling in the note-taking pages or answering the Student Review Questions, filling out the Composer Info Card, doing mapwork (where the composer was born and lived) and timeline work. The third day is just listening.

    Composer Info Cards are prepared for each composer and are exactly what they sound like. An illustration of the composer along with his name and musical period are inserted on the front of the card; a map, biographical facts, and names of compositions are on the back. One of the most interesting aspects of this program also shows up on the back of the card. The student is asked to record the evidence that we have that this person was or was not a Christian. This is discussed in the textual part of the lesson and original source information is sometimes contradictory or spotty.

    The Appendices are an amazing compilation of valuable material. Aforementioned composer musical selections with web-links, listening cues and discussion questions are included along with a valuable glossary and suggested resources for students and teachers. Purchase of the text includes access to a downloadable Companion Guide. In this Companion Guide, you’ll find answers to the lesson exercises and student review questions, plus all the reproducibles: student review/lesson exercise pages, Composer Info cards, maps, timelines, coloring pages, and game templates. Purchasing families have complete freedom to make copies of any of these resources as needed for family use but co-ops and schools are asked to contact the publisher.

    The target audience for this course is middle school students. However, I think there’s a lot of room for flexibility here. For instance, it would be easy to draw younger family members into listening both to read-aloud lessons and music and the coloring, leaving mapwork and timeline work for the older kids. But, what about high school credit for this course? The content here is thorough and complete, and if covered as outlined in the course, it would seem adequate for a high school level half-credit in music appreciation. If using it at that level, though, I would encourage the addition of some essay-writing assignments. Text is 2nd ed. HC. 162 pgs. ~ Janice

    If you've used one of Amy Pak's Time Travelers CD-ROMs, you'll have an idea of what you can expect in this art appreciation Activity Pak. If not, well, then you're just in for a treat! This CD-ROM contains all the files and instructions you need to create an art appreciation lapbook, file folder game, and a sketchbook. The CD is very well-organized and easy to navigate. You'll start by creating the individual booklets and paper organizers that make up the lapbook, including the booklet of art media, a timeline of art styles and movements, organizing a whole "exhibition" of booklets for 33 famous artists, creating a very cute "paint box vocabulary" booklet defining artistic terms, and painting your own masterpieces in the styles of ten artists. When you've completed everything, the assembly instructions show you how to put it all together in a very attractive, information-packed lapbook. You'll also enjoy creating your own file folder game, "Art Gallery." Files for the board, instructions, pieces and cards are all provided, so you can print, cut, assemble and play! You will probably want to print the art reproduction cards used in the game on a color printer. Files are also included to print and assemble a 5 ½" x 8 ½" sketchbook for sketching or journaling with artist quotes on every page. One thing I love about Amy Pak's products is that they are always well-designed and attractive, and this one is no exception – based on the files on the CD, your finished projects will be beautiful! Win/Mac compatible, requires Adobe reader, a free download. – Jess
