    For some kids, the study of history can be well, dry. Spark their interest with Amazing Facts in U.S. History! This activity book contains a series of quizzes on strange, but interesting, facts about Early Explorers, Native Americans, the First Thanksgiving, the 13 Colonies, the Revolution, the Gold Rush, the Civil War, World War II, U.S. Presidents, and more!

    Prior to each quiz is a summary of the topic to follow, the actual quiz questions are not covered. The goal is to spark interest in a topic. These would be an excellent way to excite interest in a topic or use as a guide for a history based unit study or research project. Quiz answer sheets provide explanations for the more unusual facts. Several "mystery from history" sections, which involve logic puzzles and word games, are also included. ~ Anh/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

    Having a bit of trouble with world geography? Need a book that you can use to practice naming places or geographic features? It sounds like this could be the workbook you need. There are eight sections in this book: the world, North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and Oceania, and the poles. Each section is pretty much structured the same, except for that of North America, which shows in more detail the states and provinces of Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Page-by-page, here is what you will find in the South American section: first is an introduction page to the continent of South America, giving a few facts and lists. Next are the maps, one political map showing boundaries and names, one physical map with names, one blank outline map, another blank map showing only the borders of the countries within that continent, and one map showing physical features but no names. The last two maps in the section are fill-in-the-blank activity pages, showing half the continent with each country numbered and correspondingly numbered blank lines at the bottom of the page. The world map section talks about different projections, latitude and longitude and hemispheres. The book ends with some fun activities to help review. ~ Zach

    The daily warm-ups provided in this book will help young students understand various aspects of the Constitution and U.S. government. Each worksheet provides five quick exercises (one for each school day) that review certain parts of the constitution. Exercise examples include listing items (like listing 5 powers given to Congress), true or false, defining words, writing an opinion about an issue, short answer questions, and more. Thereââ‚™s a wide variety of exercise types so students wonââ‚™t get bored, and each exercise shouldnââ‚™t take more than 5-10 minutes a day. The entire Constitution (with amendments) is printed in the front of the book (taking up 18 reproducible pages) and students can use it as a reference to answer most of the daily questions. Exercise pages are also reproducible and perforated, so you can hand out each exercise day by day, or just give your student the page to complete the entire week of activities. The exercises are organized into convenient units covering the legislative, executive, and judicial branches, Articles 4, 5, and 6, the Bill of Rights, and the rest of the amendments to the Constitution. Answers included in back, 46 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Subtitled "Beginning Latin for Homeschoolers and Self-Taught Students of Any Age," I could see this book serving as a great introduction to Latin for the family who is not sure they want to jump right into a full-fledged Latin course. Of course, it would be just as useful for an older student (or even Mom and Dad), if they have never studied Latin but want to learn it on their own. The course was designed out of necessity by author William E. Linney, after he was asked by a relative to teach Latin to her children. He set out looking for a course that would not require a Latin teacher, was self-paced, self explanatory, offered lots of practice exercises, was non-threatening, and inexpensive. When he couldn't find a course that suited his needs, he designed this one. The book contains 134 lessons, which are short (usually less than a page in length), un-fluffy, and incremental in progression. Lessons strike a nice balance between introducing new vocabulary, explaining simple grammatical concepts, and memorization of noun and verb forms. No lesson covers all of these tasks, but instead focuses on one objective and covers it well. Lessons that introduce new Latin vocabulary feature a new Latin word, its English meaning, and sometimes a pronunciation tip. This is usually followed by about ten sentences to translate. Lessons on grammar are also bite-sized, and different forms and cases are introduced gradually. As they are introduced, they are added to a chart, and students will translate sentences that use the forms and cases that they have learned. As charts are filled with endings or forms, students may be asked to memorize them, to aid in future lessons. Just for fun, "Latin Expressions" are scattered throughout the book. In each one, the author takes a common Latin phrase like "caveat emptor," or "etc." and explains the Latin history behind each phrase. Don't underestimate how these little "sparks" of knowledge whet your appetite to learn more! By the end of the book, students will have stockpiled basic vocabulary of around 100 words, be comfortable translating simple sentences in Latin, and have a grasp of basic Latin grammar.

    There are a couple of aspects of this course worth noting. First of all, because the book is more of a text than a worktext it is not designed to be consumable. For translation purposes, the author recommends translating the sentences in a separate notebook. If extra practice is desired, you may wish to translate the sentences back to the form given in the lesson. Secondly, while we all realize that pronunciation is very difficult to teach "out of a book", the author has considered this, and has come up with an ingenious solution. He has provided MP3 audio files free of charge on his website, which can be downloaded and used with the lessons. As an added bonus, you can choose from either classical pronunciation or ecclesiastical pronunciation. Audio commentary on the lessons and a host of other helpful resources is also included on the website. Lastly, this course would be excellent prep for an older student who will be studying Latin in high school or college who hasn't had the benefit of laying a basic Latin foundation earlier in life. Upon completion of this book, I think students would be more ready to tackle Lingua Latina, Oxford University Latin, Henle Latin, or Cambridge Latin, than if they were starting off cold. Latina Christiana I or other complete courses designed for younger students could also be considered reasonable continuations, although there would be much more overlap/review between courses. This is a terrific way to get started in Latin and I am glad that the author did not find what he was looking for to teach Latin, because he has certainly written a course that fulfills all of his goals! – Jess

    The Teacher Guide is a very important part of this program. You will find a course schedule, worksheets for each lesson, answer keys (a mix of answers and solutions), quizzes, and tests. Also included in the worksheets are math problems from historical text books, such as Applied Mathematics for Junior High Schools and High Schools and Secondary Arithmetic: Commercial and Industrial for High, Industrial, Commercial, Normal Schools, and Academics and Practical Algebra: First Year Course. These problems help students understand the role of math throughout history, but they are also good thinking math problems. There are two versions of the schedule – two-year and one-year. The two-year schedule is basically one lesson per day using both books to equal two years of junior high math. If you have a student who is really motivated and wants to finish both books in one year, there is a schedule for that. In this option, students complete about 2 to 3 lessons per day – depending on the length. The Student Workbook is consumable (not reproducible); pages are perforated with plenty of space for students to show their work and answer questions.
