    Dinah Zike's book of ideas for studying US history – foldables style! Foldables – 3-D interactive graphic organizers – form the basis of this hands-on activity book. In case you are not familiar with foldables, the first section of this four-part book is an introduction to what foldables are and the why and how to use them. The second part teaches how to make foldables, with folding instructions (in color) for one, two, three, and four-part folds, as well as foldables with any number of parts. Section three has 38 ideas for foldable activities covering US history from the "first Americans" and Native Americans right through to the new millennium. The book is well illustrated, with lots of diagrams of the right folds and cuts to make. The final section (the fourth) is actually 47 pages full of reproducible graphics of the states, the presidents, and many other random things which pertain to US history. These hands-on projects would work equally well in a homeschool or classroom setting. 138 pages, pb. ~ Zach

    This book gives a detailed, interesting account of United States history in a story-telling style. Full-color photographs and illustrations that support the text add to the learning experience. Timelines, profiles of historical figures, maps, charts, and graphs also help in learning and building map-reading skills. Meant to be used as an aid with any social studies curriculum, the book begins with an account of the arrival of the first Americans who traveled from Asia over the Bering Land Bridge and ends with a discussion of the information super highway of the twenty first century. The book is not written from a Christian perspective and religious references are not included.

    The book is broken down into ten units that tell of different eras in our history. Unit One tells about the Americas until the early 1500's. It discusses how people first came to the continent and tells of ancient Native American culture. Unit Two covers from 1492 to 1700 and shares the European exploration of America. Unit Three tells of the adventures that took place and the people involved during the colonial times of 1550 to 1775. Unit Four discusses the Revolutionary War and the beginning years of the nation from 1775 to 1810. Unit Five discusses the expansion of the U.S. from 1785 to 1860. Topics such as Lewis and Clark, The Erie Canal, the gold rush, and the Pony Express are covered. Unit Six tells about the Civil War, covering everything from slavery to Gettysburg to Lincoln's assassination. Unit Seven portrays the life events of the American people from 1865 to 1900. The railroad, pioneer life, and the Nez Perce are just a few of the topics covered in this section. Unit Eight covers from 1890-1920, including inventions like the airplane or ideas like the assembly line or the beginning of women's suffrage. Unit Nine tells of some struggles America overcame from 1914-1945, such as WW I, the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, and WW II, but it also lists some positive things that happened during the period, such as Jesse Owens winning Olympic medals and Charles Lindbergh crossing the Atlantic. The final unit covers 1950 to the present time.

    Students read about all these historical events in a pleasant manner, and included activities add interest. Activities include writing essays about events or people, identifying things on maps, filling out word puzzles, and creating time-lines. Answers included. ~ Rachel S.

    Lavishly illustrated with maps, photographs and reproduction paintings, this family reference has appeal for Americans of all ages. Defining the character of America in three words - optimism, action and energy, this National Geographic book will teach and entertain its readers. Chapter 1 begins with the settling of America and the people groups who have made us who we are collectively. Profiles on William Penn and Pocahontas are included along with an interesting article entitled, "Can America be a 'City on the Hill'?" which explores America's religious ideals and the reality of greed and materialism. The second chapter looks at the birth of America including early wars and the constitutional convention. Profiles of Thomas Paine and Abigail Adams are included, and the great historical debate between federalists and anti-federalists is summarized. Chapter 3 covers our expanding nation and profiles Thomas Jefferson and Nat Turner. Chapter 4 offers a look at women's rights, slavery, the Civil War and reconstruction with profiles on Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Abraham Lincoln. Industry and Empire are the focus of chapter 5 with profiles of Andrew Carnegie and Chief Joseph. This is followed by the New Deal and the growth of government. Chapter 6 profiles crusader Ida B. Wells-Barnett and Huey Long. Chapter 7 looks at war, prosperity and social changes from 1941-1968, with profiles of Joseph McCarty and Martin Luther King Jr. The final chapter looks at 1969-present with profiles of Sandra Day O'Conner and Cesar Chavez. A key events timeline is found across the bottom of each chapter's first page which adds to the value of this compelling resource. As we consider where America is today, the author leaves us with the discussion point of more or less government in the economy, which is a question that we will continue to grapple with as we strive to progress as a nation.

    Also included is the entire text of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Gettysburg Address and the Declaration of Sentiments as well as a listing of websites to explore, historical places to visit, and many other helpful resources. Whether you utilize this for school research or a coffee table book to be set out and enjoyed, there is much to appreciate within these pages. HC. 240 pgs. ~Deanne

Each topic or lesson covers two pages, and includes comprehension questions, a vocabulary drill and a few ‘fun facts’. The text also includes several color photos and maps, along with a glossary.

    Continuing the successful "detective" series from The Critical Thinking Company, the U.S. History Detective book can be used as a supplement to any history program, as a review course, or as a stand-alone text. The goal of this text is to encourage and develop critical thinking, analysis, and reading comprehension through the study of U.S. history. Book one covers the span from Colonial Times to the Reconstruction after the Civil War. Each lesson includes an informative text where each sentence is clearly numbered for easy reference. Colorful pictures, maps and timelines illustrate the text throughout. The question section in each lesson requires students to support their answers with specific references back to the text (hence the numbered sentences). This helps students get into the practice of providing supporting evidence for answers rather than relying simply on recall information. The various questions in each lesson will give students the opportunity to make inferences and draw conclusions based on their evaluation of the text, distinguish between fact and opinion, understand historical chronology, expand their vocabulary, link history with geography, and practice answering analytical essay questions. There are 65 lessons grouped into 9 sections. There are also more than 20 reviews throughout the book and answers to all lessons and reviews are included. This is a consumable book and permission is given to make copies for home or classroom use. – Zach
