    I've been waiting for this book for awhile – and I suspect there are others waiting right there with me. History of the Ancient World gave us a sequel to Story of the World for older readers but left us with the need to design our own curriculum and study materials. This is so much better! Now History of the Ancient World can function as a stand-alone high school (or middle school if your child is ready) history/geography course.

    There is a set of exercises for each chapter. Some sections – Who, What, Where and Comprehension – are answered in one or two complete sentences and can be done "open-book." The Critical Thinking section (not done open book) requires the student to produce a brief written reflection on the ideas presented in the chapter. The student is helped in this by preliminary exercises. The fourth section – Map Work (not included with every chapter) – asks the student to go through a carefully structured set of steps – tracing repeatedly, then copying while looking at the book, and finally, reproducing from memory. [All needed maps are provided in the back of the book. Map Work will require black pencils, colored pencils, and large amounts of tracing paper.]

    The set of 85 worksheets (reproducible for families) are in the back third of the book. The front third? Well, I guess you would call it the answer key, but it feels like more. Each item/question to be identified or answered is specifically referenced to the text (by page and paragraph number). Sample answers are given for each item including the essay questions. That's it! There are no lesson plans or additional information or teacher helps - just what you need to provide a strong history course. Although there are no quarterly or final tests, these would be easy to compile based on the information provided here. 533 pgs, pb. Medieval – 832 pgs, pb ~ Janice

    Or, in home school language: a literature-based unit study. This one uses some of my very favorite children's picture books (see list below). For each of the 18 books, there's a story summary and a "before the story", "during the story" and "after the story" suggestion. A helpful shaded box points out themes, skills, vocabulary, and related books. This is followed by "connections" to curriculum areas including: language arts, math, science, problem-solving and social skills, fine motor, gross motor, visual discrimination, art, and creative dramatics. Reproducible activity pages are provided for some of these. This is great for preschool, as you can center one or several days around these books, themes and activities – even an entire week if you integrate the related literature selections. As an example, for If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, emphasized themes are: being a good host, patience, real and fantasy. Skills focused on are making predictions, alphabet, counting, biology, and manners. Special vocabulary is carried away, comfortable, finished, mustache, remind. Related books include If You Take a Mouse to School and If You Give a Moose a Muffin. Before reading the book, you ask your child to predict what might happen if they gave a mouse a cookie and relate that to what they do when they get a cookie. During the story, you take advantage of the many "cliffhangers" in the book, allowing children to guess at the sentence endings before turning the page. After the story, the author suggests additional readings (this is because children have such fun with the outlandish turns of events – most stories have other activities in this section). There are two Language Arts Connections; one is playing with magnetic letters on a cookie sheet (related to the drawn red letters and cookies on the book cover); the other is to make alphabet cookies (sounds yummy!). For a math activity, there's a reproducible page for children to match the chocolate chip cookies with the same number of chips. Science Connections have you researching what mice really eat. If you have access to a mouse, the book suggests experimenting with various foods. If not, you'll have to settle for using another book, using the internet, or visiting a pet store. In Problem-Solving and Social Skills Connections, children practice being good hosts or hostesses. You can play the mouse and let your child entertain you (tea party, anyone)? Then, as the mouse does in the story, children practice fine motor skills by drawing pictures of a scene from the book or of their family as the mouse does. Children practice writing their names (using tracing paper), tape it to the artwork, and then to the refrigerator, just like mouse. For Gross Motor Connections, you again mimic the mouse, this time in sweeping and cleaning (remember, the mouse got carried away and swept the entire house!). The book suggests supplementing with a little house-sweeping music of your choice. In Art Connections, children construct Barbershop Portraits as you reread the book, paying special attention to the part where mouse trims his hair. Children paste long strands of yarn to self-portraits for hair (deliberately making the hair in need of a trim). After the glue dries, children use safety scissors to "cut" their hair to a desired length. In Creative Dramatics Connections children practice proper mealtime manners. After rereading the section of the book where mouse asks for a straw and a napkin with his cookie snack, you provide yourself and your child(ren) with paper plates, empty cups and straws, and napkins. Then you pretend to be a group of mice, eating cookies and drinking milk, demonstrating how to eat a cookie over your plate, use your napkin and drink properly with a straw. If children do well, follow through with real cookies and milk then show children how to clean up after the meal. A final reproducible page has children color the pictures that show how someone in the family takes care of them (also great as a discussion starter).

    Students experience art through history by participating in projects highlighting techniques and styles through the ages. Comprehensive in scope, the book begins with prehistoric art and progresses through the late 20th century. Each major period (Ancient World, Middle Ages, World Beyond Europe, Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo, Romantic, Impressionism & Post-Impressionism, Early 20th Century, Late 20th Century) is further divided into periods, locations, or schools of art. Each major section and sub-section begins with background information to set the stage. Within each sub-section are one or many projects designed to help students understand and appreciate concepts and methods used in art of all kinds (not limited to paintings). There are 80 different projects in all. Materials needed for the project are listed first, followed by a sample of the artwork and narrative description highlighting the type of art, method used to create it, a particular technique or feature, etc. Directions and instructions are then provided for completing a project simulating the art or concepts. To get the full visual impact of works referenced you will have to find reproductions, since the author provides only line drawings of the art. This is purposeful, since the pages are intended to be reproducible student handouts - in some cases, artwork is done directly on the page. Projects vary from simple drawings to elaborate construction. A few are extremely ambitious, but rather accurately impart the amount of effort involved in creating the type of art being studied. So much is included here that the best I can do is describe a few projects. The first project is Prehistoric Painting. Students make earth-pigment powders using brick, unglazed tile, or rock that is easily filed. A flat stone is used for a "canvas" to recreate a simple cave painting of an animal. The outline is drawn in charcoal or charcoal pencil. Earth powders are mixed with honey (just like they did way back then), and used to color within the outline. Project #20 (from Gothic Art) is creating a stained glass window using tracing paper, felt tip pens, and black construction paper. During the Italian Renaissance period (1400-1600) projects include Shading and Foreshortening, Renaissance Composition, Linear Perspective, Fresco Cartoon (mimicking the process by which frescoes where outlined before being painted), creating a picture based on one of many of Leonardo da Vinci's observations and ideas, and making a model of one of da Vinci's inventions. Project #53 has students use broad felt-tipped pens to try out Impressionist techniques on a basic line-drawn scene. I'm sure students could come up with some outlandish ideas for the Dada art project (Early 20th Century), inspired by Man Ray's Gift (an iron with tacks fixed to the bottom - a study in irony). Students will come back to earth by Project #80 (inspired by Spiral Jetty, an abstract sculpture formed with rocks and earth in Utah's Great Salt Lake) which focuses on creating art from/in nature. Students create their own earthwork, planning a simple tabletop design using stones, sand, gravel, dirt, and similar natural materials. (I have an excellent natural "collage" on my window right now - I call it The Undersides of Many Tree Frogs).

    Turn a cute lantern into a fun hot air balloon! Use the included string, tracing paper, flag stickers, and more to transform a 7 fabric lantern and a little wicker basket into a custom, beautiful balloon. Not a fan of collage? Thats ok too. Think of the simple white lantern as a canvas; armed with your own art supplies, your options are endless! When everything is dry, pop in two AAA batteries (not included) and hang your balloon in your room for a custom light fixture that reflects your unique style. Laura

    This is one of those inexpensive, craft room staples that once you have used it, you will find loads of projects to use it for! It is a liquid that, when dry, creates a thick, shiny, clear coating onto your paper crafts, jewelry, photo art or what have you. You could tint it blue and use it for water in a diorama with your Safari animal figures! It's great for holding beads or glitter in place. Save the time of layering coat after coat onto your projects. Drying time will vary according to thickness. ~ Sara
