    Which came first - the beginning of construction on Notre Dame Cathedral, or the printing of the Gutenberg Bible? Test your historical perspective with Perspective. 2 to 8 players try to place event cards in chronological order in four categories: Ancient, Middle, Modern, and 20th Century. If you think one of the other players is "out of order", challenge them. Flip the question cards to reveal the dates on the back. If you're right, you get to give that player one of your cards. When all of your cards are played, you win! 200 event cards included. Recommended for ages 12+, but can be used as young as age 10. A fun way to impart historical knowledge and a frame of reference.

       The popular Timeline card game is now available in board game format! This version uses the same mechanics from the card game, but it includes a board for tracking progress as well as introducing a number of challenges. These challenges can be tackled in solitary style or by joining forces with other players. This game comes with its own cards, but any Timeline set can be integrated for game play. 2-10 players, 30+ minutes playing time.

    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

    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

    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

      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

    I am excited that Ray and Charlene Notgrass have written this excellent, one year world history course! While many families enjoy a chronological, multi-year approach to world history, others prefer to study history in a more traditional manner-one year at a time. Written in the engaging narrative ‘voice’ that has made the Notgrass courses beloved by many homeschool families, this new World History begins at the very foundation of our Christian foundation- Adam and journeys to the end of the 20th century, with a final unit on our interconnected world (from the thrill of world-wide sporting events to turmoil in the Middle East).

    Containing 30 units, with 5 lessons per unit, this course will take students one year to complete. It is anticipated that daily lessons will take 45-90 minutes per day, although it is naturally flexible for homeschool families to set their own pace. While the target grade range is 5 through 8, families with younger children will find this a perfect ‘read aloud’ curriculum, as the text has been clearly and engagingly written.

    Let me give a bit of an example of how the unit lessons are laid out. At the start of each unit, there is a brief introduction to the lessons including the recommended literature selection to accompany the reading. Each weekly unit has one lesson from each of five categories: Our World Story (major events in history); God’s Wonders (impact of the world’s created wonders on history and culture); World Landmarks; World Biography of some of history’s most influential personalities and Daily Life (an inside view of everyday life). Daily lessons are richly illustrated with graphics and photographs, including maps of historic places and regions. At the conclusion of each lesson (approximately 5-8 pages), parents and children will select assignments to complete from a list of 5-7 assignments. Older students may be able to complete all the activities-but again- there is built-in flexibility for your individual family’s needs. Assignments include readings from the Our Creative World book (collection of original documents); Map Book assignments; Timeline Book assignments; assignments from the Student Workbook and Lesson Review Book (optional resources), as well as language arts assignments covering vocabulary, creative writing, literature selections. Thinking Biblically assignments are also included with most lessons and are designed to engage students in applying Scripture to history and life. Each unit also provides a suggested weekly family activity-projects vary and include arts and crafts, recipes and games. Materials are easily found for the projects and are designed to bring the family together to enjoy time together building memories.

    Curriculum package contains From Adam to Us Part 1 & 2; Our Creative World, Map Book, Timeline Book and the Answer Key to end of the lessons questions as well as the activities and tests in the Student Workbook and the questions and tests in the Lesson Review. Although it is possible to share the Map and Timeline books, they are available separately, allowing each child to have their own copy. I suspect that most children will be eager to create their own map and timeline.

    If you would like to add more supplemental instruction or review, consider the Student Workbook (5th-6th grade) or the Lesson Review (7th-8th grades). Both include additional assignments that correspond to the daily lesson as well as unit tests and questions related to the literature selections. Most literature based questions are recall based. However, there are a smattering of higher level thinking questions.

    Middle school children will be enthralled as they view world history through the lens of a Creator God who is alive and active, from the very foundation of our world through present day. ~ Deanne

    "We the people…" perhaps the three most important words in the U.S Constitution, these few words turned the world upside down by taking away power from the ancient monarchies of Europe and putting that power into the hands of the American people. This book introduces students to some of America's most important historical documents in the Preamble, the Articles of the Constitution, and the Amendments. The book includes a varied collection of activities such as comprehension questions, vocabulary, constructing a timeline, constructing a government tree, interpreting political cartoons, games and more. Activities can be used in totality as a comprehensive unit study or selectively as a supplement to another program. Reproducible, answers included. - Enh

    This coloring and activity book will help kids remember important people, places, stories, and lessons from the Bible. More than 100 Bible stories are included, beginning with Genesis 1 and ending with Philippians 1. Each two-page spread lists the Scripture reference at the top of the page and includes one coloring page depicting a scene from the story and an activity page. The activity pages are varied and provide great hands-on tools for kids to retell Bible stories in their own words. Some of the activities include puzzles, story slides, 3-D scenes, Bible timelines, board games, moveable characters, mini books, and more. (The activities don't require complicated supplies—scissors, glue, crayons, and around-the-house objects are sufficient for most of the projects.) A table of contents arranges the stories/projects chronologically, and a teacher's page provides suggestions for using the coloring pages to enhance storytelling. Reproducible. 240 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    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

    This is one of the most visually appealing, fun books about the states that I have seen. Not at all a boring facts book of the 50 states, this book presents facts and history about each state in a variety of ways. Each state occupies one or two pages and is given a brief passage outlining many of the important or interesting things about that state. Graphics and boxes hold especially intriguing facts, such as the outline of a Monopoly board on the New Jersey pages bordering a fact about the man who invented the game Monopoly, naming the properties after streets in Atlantic City, New Jersey. I couldn't even begin to list the many other methods of displaying interesting things and occupying children - each state's pages are completely different. Pop-ups, recipes, famous people boxes, pictures, spin wheels, removable letters from envelopes, timelines, pull tabs, maps - the list goes on. I am positive that you will enjoy your trek through each and every state that makes up our country!

    This classic text introduces students to all aspects of ancient Greek society. Each chapter covers a different topic, including the People and Land (geography), Homer, City-States, Sparta, Wars with Persia, Religion, Games, Education, Alexander, and more. Plenty of captioned black and white photos, maps, diagrams, and illustrations appear throughout the text. For example, there is an illustrated page explaining the names and functions of twenty-two different types of pottery that Greeks used in their everyday lives; a floor plan of a typical Greek house; and photographs of ancient coins. The text is engaging and readable, with excerpts from classic Greek literature and an anecdotal, "storytelling" quality that makes you feel like you are witnessing the events unfold. An index in the back of the book contains information on the Greek alphabet and language, a list of discussion questions for each chapter, a timeline/date chart, and a list of sources for further reading. Index included. By H.D. Amos & A.G.P. Lang. 224 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    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

    It makes perfect sense to use favorite books to learn about literary elements. Students will learn about character as they read Amber Brown is Not a Crayon, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, Dear Mr. Henshaw, and Holes. How to Eat Fried Worms, Bunnicula: A Rabbit Tale of Mystery, Mr. Popper's Penguins, and Bud, Not Buddy are used to teach plot. Sarah, Plain and Tall, Knights of the Kitchen Table, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler help students understand setting. Theme is taught using StoneFox, The Whipping Boy, The Prince of the Pond, and Shiloh (books are not included).

    Each section of this book includes an explanation of the literary element, its importance to the story, an example of its use in the featured book, and a lesson for each book. Within each lesson you will find a story summary, learning goals, discussion starters, and activities (2 per story) to be completed, such as graphic organizers, writing exercises, making games, and a variety of other activities. For example, after students read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory they make their own tourist brochure highlighting the interesting parts of the chocolate factory. Students make a snapshot timeline for the events of From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. Encourage a love of reading and learning through the content of this book. Activity pages are reproducible for classroom or family use. 96 pages, pb. ~ Donna
