    A set of 25 map activities to help you incorporate geography into your study of U.S. history. Requiring no preparation time, these are activities to be used independently by students with any text or study of the U.S. to help student visualize events and movements in U.S. History. As with the World History Map Activities, each exercise includes an instruction/worksheet and a map to complete. Maps and activities are reproducible for your home school only, so you will need only one copy. Answers are included to all worksheet activities and map exercises. This book is extremely well-done, covering every phase of U.S. history from discovery through "American Involvement in Vietnam."

    For all your hands-on, kinesthetic, visual, arty, or just-plain-bored-with-textbook students, I recommend this! With 26 different map activities covering various periods from the first Americans (stated as arriving 15,000 years ago) to the landing on the moon, each major period of US history is included. Each map activity includes a two page spread with directions on how to make the maps, followed by two reproducible map pages which usually require tape and scissors to complete. The period-applicable maps, once completed, become 3-D maps with moveable pieces. All are in black and white and can be colored, if desired. The directions pages also include teaching points on the geography and history surrounding the maps. A really neat supplement to any US history program, some of the periods mapped include: Vikings discover America, settlements at Roanoke and Jamestown, piracy on the high seas, Washington crosses the Delaware, the trail of tears, western cattle trails, building the Panama Canal, and many more. 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.

    A simple yet charming story to help young children understand their geographical place in this world. Colorful, detailed illustrations make it fun to follow along with a little girl using maps to take a journey which starts at her bedroom and gradually widens to include her house, town, state, country, and the world. I especially like the fun and easy activity suggestions, such as mapping your own house or making homemade postcards, which are included with this Reading Rainbow™ selection. ~ Anh

    A wonderful way to incorporate geography into your world studies! Besides teaching basic map concepts like longitude and latitude, they help teach the facts and ideas of history; each map becoming a do-it-yourself visual aid. There are 35 map activities in all - each with a research and instruction sheet and a map to be completed, that span history from "Ancient Near East" to "Africa: The New Nations". Some maps are examples of historic concepts and terms. The map of Africa in 1914, for example, is a vivid portrayal of the concept of imperialism. Some activities are self-contained, some require reference to a text, others require some research in an atlas or encyclopedia. These sheets are not keyed to a particular text, but should work well with whatever text or course you choose - or use by itself as a survey course. A key is provided for each of the exercises, but there is no key for the map work. Sheets are reproducible (for within your home).

    Starting with the immigration of even the earliest Native Americans, American History the Easy Way will lead you on a chronological study of this great country. Presented in a way that is intended to be grasped easily, the text is clear and thought provoking, and it is frequently divided by headings to make particular periods or events easy to find. To help with recall and retention, each section within a chapter ends with "links from the past to the present," "dates," "key points to remember," "key people to remember," and questions in the form of identification, true/false, and multiple-choice. The chapters end in the same way but also include several open-ended analysis questions for essay practice. The chapters break up US history in the following way: Nation of Immigrants, European Settlements in North America, American Revolution, Constitution and the Establishment of the New Nation, Sectionalism and Nationalism: 1801-1850, Growing Nation – Social Change: 1800-1860, Slavery and the Civil War, Changing Lifestyles: 1865-1914, From Panic to Empire, Turmoil of War and Depression, WWII and the Early Years of the Cold War, Civil Rights, Vietnam, the Cold War, and Watergate: 1960-1976, The Presidencies of Carter, Reagan, and Bush: 1977-1993, Social Changes: 1945-2002, and Recent History: the Clinton Years and After. Illustrated with maps, graphs, and pictures, this book is guaranteed to help with your history grades. ~ Zach

Children will voyage across the Atlantic with Christopher Columbus, accompany Daniel Boone on his trek to cut a trail into Kentucky, experience the gold rush with Dame Shirley, travel the Underground Railroad to freedom with Big Joe Bailey, and return to America after the Vietnam War with a Vietnamese family who helped America during the war, all in the pages of this book. Each page holds an enthralling account of that expedition and the history surrounding it told through the words of a specific person on the journey. Colorful maps outline the paths traveled, with significant points marked by a red numbered square and detailed by the corresponding caption. ~ Steph

    The first paragraph from the preface of this book offers a wonderful insight into this book. It reads: "The story of the Christian Church is intensely interesting. It deals with some of the most dramatic episodes in history. For the children of God it is also instructive and inspiring. They regard it as a heritage that should be passed on to their children." This book was created as a textbook for a Christian-perspective class about church history. The text is divided into five sections, and spans history from 33 A.D. to present times. The five sections cover the young Christian Church, the Church in the Middle Ages, the Church in the Reformation, the Church After the Reformation, and the Church in the New World. Each section is then further divided into chapters which discuss the growth of the church, divisions, rises and declines of power, reformations, the church in various countries, various denominations, and lots of other components of church history. After each chapter, review questions are offered to promote further thinking about the chapter and its relevance to current life. The questions can be rather complex and are probably best used with students from the upper grades. Maps and timelines throughout the book correlate with the text, and dozens of black and white photographs with captions illustrate the events. 412 pgs w/ index. ~ Rachel S.
