    So, why are we offering another map outline book? Well, this one is different from the others, and we just couldn't decide which was "better", because they both would serve a slightly different user. The book begins with a Mercator Projection map of the world, followed by 45 different maps of individual countries or small clusters of countries (too many to list here). Unlike Maps, there is only one, unlabeled, map for each title, and waterways are clearly shown. An inset map of the region is included, with map's location darkened for easy reference. Also included on each page is the area covered by the map in square miles. The U.S. map is marked with state boundaries and waterways. Maps for each of the 50 states appear alphabetically, again with waterways and square miles shown. A U.S. map is inset on each page, clearly showing the location of that state in the U.S. by shading. Basically, there are significantly more country-specific maps in this book, helpful if you need more detailed maps of smaller regions. For example, Germany is its own map in this book whereas it's lumped in a "Northern Europe" map in Maps. In fact, Northern Europe is broken into about four different maps in Blank Map Outlines. None of the maps are labeled, however, so you'll need to refer to an atlas for labeling. The other major difference is the inclusion of waterways (rivers and lakes) in this outline book.

    This 12 ¼" x 9" binder provides you with a handy place to record the chronology of history from 5000 B.C. to today. Beginning in 5000 B.C. each sturdy page holds a bold horizontal line across the middle of the page representing 1000 years. The span of time on each page quickly decreases to only 50 years by 650 B.C. and then slowly fluctuates from between 100-5 years on each page from 0 A.D. to the present, varying to allow all major events and figures to be marked. At least one year is marked on every page below the timeline in order to provide you with markers, and quotes from people throughout history adorn the top or bottom of every couple pages. Following the 112 timeline pages are 17 blank maps of ancient times and the world today. This book is nicely packaged in a 3-ring binder, allowing you to easily flip through the pages and view specific dates. You may easily use this record for writing or drawing in events and people yourself as you study, or see above for accompanying timeline packets. ~ Steph

     This coloring book by Usborne presents the national flag of every independent country in the world for you to color. The flags are grouped according to their continent of origin, and helpful maps of each continent are also included which enable readers to see the location of each nation. Several blank flags are featured on each page, with full-color representations along the outside edges for reference.  Alongside each blank flag is a short explanation detailing its particular symbols or colors; these references do not often include the date when a particular flag was adopted. The value of this resource goes way beyond the fact that it can be used as a coloring book. 48 pgs, pb. ~ Mike

    Have you ever stopped to realize that a comprehensive understanding of the earth, its structure, and its inhabitants are a necessary foundation for interacting meaningfully with our increasingly global-minded world? Taking an overview approach, the North Star Geography course covers geography skills (reading maps, using geographic tools, cartography, surveying, and navigation), physical geography (geology, meteorology, oceanography, ecology, hydrology, and astronomy), and human geography (sociology, culture, religion, transportation, agriculture, government, and economics). Bright Ideas Press and world geography – what a great idea! Student Reader plus Companion Guide CD-ROM (activities: maps, hands-on, research options, quizzes/tests) – what a great idea! Quality content, Biblical worldview, and user-friendliness all rolled up into one package – what a great idea!

    Obviously, the Student Reader is the heart of the course. Each of the sixteen lessons provides 15-20 pages of reading text, full-color illustrations, photos, sidebar articles, and maps. Lessons are divided into teaching segments which are both highly readable and interesting. The organization lends itself to flexibility, and the course could be done over one year (two weeks per lesson), two years (four weeks per lesson), or even one semester (one week per lesson – a bare bones approach). Vocabulary words are in bold with definitions provided in the glossary at the end of the text. The Reader concludes with a reference list that provides options for further study.

    The accompanying Companion Guide CD-ROM (pdf files) provides both basic and "extra" activities in addition to all content from the Reader. It's these pdf files that will allow you to tailor the course for high school, for junior high, or for a combination of ages. Families may make photocopies or print pages as needed, but classrooms and co-ops should contact the publisher for a multiple-use license. Depending on the course time-frame you choose, you will probably have to do some selection of activities, as there is a wealth provided.

    • • Hands-On Activities – there is lots of variety here – some short and simple, some more involved. Materials lists are provided when necessary (and tend to be easy-to-get items).
    • • Build Your Own Atlas – there's a segment for each lesson that includes labeling outline maps, completing fact files, and creating a set of political, physical, and thematic maps. Outline maps are provided but a good atlas as a reference is helpful (i.e. Wondermaps or Atlas of World Geography).
    • • Note-Taking Pages – each lesson has a set of 10 questions taken from the text that serve as lesson review and a study guide for the quizzes.
    • • Memorization Lists – a list of 198 countries, 70 regions and physical features to learn – roughly 16 items per lesson.
    • • Research Questions – a set of questions for each continent which encourage the student to conduct his own research (answers included).
    • • Quizzes and Tests – quizzes for each lesson (based on note-taking questions and map work). A final exam includes questions taken from all 16 of the lessons (answer keys and grading rubrics included).
    • • Graphic Organizers - can be used for all types of studies – world/continent, country, culture, regional geography, and government fact files.

    Homeschool geography courses have tended to be research frameworks that can be used by multi-age students and over several years. While having lots of advantages for families they require planning, preparation, and, often, outside resources. North Star takes a different approach providing a very solid base of textual information but giving lots of options for additional activities and research. It provides all necessary forms and pages, requiring only a good world atlas to accompany the course. ~ Janice

    More structured than a nature journal, this "outdoor workbook" is a great tool for families and students who prefer some guided instruction and inspiration as they observe, record, and learn from nature throughout the year. It features a varied, interactive format that kids won't soon get bored with, great forms for observation you can print from the publisher's website, and lots of terrific activity suggestions. The book is divided into three parts: "How to Be a Naturalist," "Learning the Sky," and "Exploring Nature." The first part introduces students to the skills and tools of the naturalist, provides suggestions and forms for setting up a nature journal, offers ideas for observation and appreciation (listing species that live in your neighborhood, making a "nature arrangement" or using observations to write a nature poem), and even includes quick drawing lessons that all culminate in an "field expedition." Because weather plays such a large role in nature, it gets its own chapter, and students are encouraged to draw the sky over different days and times, "read" clouds, draw a weather map, learn why we have seasons, play with shadows, keep a moon journal, discover nocturnal animals, learn three constellations and write a sky poem. The majority of "Exploring Nature" is organized by month (January-December) and provides specific activities and mini-lessons on seasonal nature topics. In March students will learn about the spring equinox, check for life in small pools of water and streams, turn over logs and rocks, draw birds, observe and draw budding twigs, and much more. In August, the focus is on water (the book assumes a family vacation here!) and students learn about the water cycle, find out more about a local stream or river, experiment with water, learn about water creatures, find sources of water in nature, keep a nature journal on vacation, and sleep under the stars. Several forms are provided for all months, including "Nature Notes" and "Nature Quest" forms, and a blank page for a "Picture of the Month." You can print more of these online for ongoing observation projects. Quite a few helpful resources for parents can be found in the appendix, such as safety information, suggestions on how to use nature journals in teaching and how to use the book to meet state curriculum standards, a bibliography (including suggested field guides and books for kids), recommended websites and a list of nature organizations. If you're new to nature studies and looking for some time-saving forms and activity suggestions, this is a resource to consider – and its reasonable enough you may want to get each child their own copy. – Jess

    This is a unique approach to math practice – real world math within the context of the 50 states. Work through each state with place value, rounding, estimation, fractions, and percentages using data taken from the Census Bureau for 2008. We live in Illinois, and one example for our state is, "In 2005, the average cost per day for a hospital stay was $1,637; if you double this number, what digit is in the hundreds place?"

    The cd is full of PDF files (you need Adobe Acrobat Reader) arranged alphabetically by state names. Each section or state is referred to as a 'workbook' and includes basic instruction, objectives, 80 practice problems (20 problems in each area mentioned earlier), answer keys, and "What's the Big Idea" which is a blank page on which the student is to explain what they have learned. All content addresses NCTM standards. The activities can be used to reinforce mathematics and social studies, and is designed for the independent learner. Learn a little more about your state and hone your math skills. ~ Donna

    C10011 As a parent or teacher, you have probably heard the complaints about learning math, "Why do I have to learn this, I'll never use it." These books help you answer that question with real world examples and problems.

Within each volume, there are 11 sections or workbooks and each of them contains 10 real world math activities, and each activity is two pages in length. Those two pages are full of word problems which are related to the same topic such as shipping packages, college housing costs, choosing a cell phone plan, or music downloads. Volume I includes workbooks for arithmetic I, calculus I, exponential and logarithmic functions I, fractions, percents, decimals I & II, linear functions I & II, periodic and piecewise functions I, polynomial, power, logistic, rational functions I, quadratic functions I, and sets, probability, statistics I. Volume II contains workbooks for arithmetic II, fractions, percents, decimals III & IV, geometry I & II, graphing & other algebra skills I & II, linear functions III, periodic & piecewise II, quadratic II, and sets, probability, statistics II. Detailed solutions and explanations are included on the pages that immediately follow each activity.

    The purchaser of these volumes has permission to copy for classroom or family use, and activities are mapped to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. CD-ROMs are also available with printable text. This one book will give you word problem practice, reinforcement and supplementation for curriculum, real world topics that can also be used for discussion, and meets the standards – it's like one stop shopping for math! ~ Donna

    This is another quality, standards-based curriculum that is now available to homeschool families. If you want to be sure that your child is covering material found on standardized testing or your goal is to keep pace with grade-level classrooms or put your child back into the classroom without gaps, Scott Foresman covers the necessary information at each grade level.

    Content-wise, Grades 5 and 6 are very similar. The United States (Gr. 5) and Building a Nation (Gr.  6) are identical through Unit 7 (the Civil War and the end of slavery). The grade 6 text – Building a Nation – has an additional two units (Expansion and Change; The United States and the World) which take the historical narrative up to the end of the 19th century. We assume the reason for this duplication is that most states require state history in either 5th or 6th grades. You would then choose to use either the 5th grade or the 6th grade course to cover the first part of American history.

    Homeschool bundle includes the necessary student and teacher information at each level. Grade 5 & 6 bundles include 2 volumes of the teacher edition with pouch cards and pouch, hardcover student text, and workbook.

    The Teacher Edition includes small-format student text pages with teaching notes in the margins, reproducibles, reference lists, skills handbook for citizenship, research, and geography. Strategies for teaching vocabulary, planning guide, answer keys for the workbook, and other resources are included in the overview of the curriculum and for each unit. You will see some resources mentioned that aren’t included in this bundle, but are not necessary for the completion of the course – transparencies, quick studies, posters, etc. Suggestions for family and calendar activities, writing rubrics, reading suggestions, and graphic organizers are also found in the teacher edition. Online resources can be found at the publisher’s website, sfsocialstudies.com – library, current events, atlas, activities, and biographies, along with live links to learning partners for this curriculum – Smithsonian, Colonial Williamsburg, and others.

      Student Texts provide grade-appropriate reading opportunity along with a plethora of visuals – diagrams, timelines, photos, illustrations, and maps – ideal for those who need a little more than just the reading. Units are divided into chapters and further divided into lessons. Each lesson includes a preview, vocabulary, review, and “think and apply” questions. A review section provides summary at the end of each chapter, and can be used as an assessment opportunity (answers provided in the teacher edition).

      The Workbook included in each set includes reinforcement activities - vocabulary practice, lesson reviews, reading skills practice, skills worksheets, and projects. Multiple choice, short answer, fill-in-the-blank, reading graphs and maps are all used to enhance and strengthen the students understanding of textual content.
