    The United States has many amazing and diverse landmarks that range from natural wonders to historical sites. Now follow the mazes that wind through such places as Plymouth Rock, Mt. Rushmore, Hoover Dam, the Grand Canyon, Niagra Falls, Brooklyn Bridge, La Brea tar pits, and the Alamo. Facts are included with all twenty-four mazes. Once the mazes are complete—solutions are included for those who get lost—they can be colored. – John

    Well, this certainly wasn't what I was expecting! It's quite different and SO much more. Don't let the subtitle – Using Common Core Standards and Informational Text – and your feelings about CCSS get in your way. This is an unusual – and creative – grammar supplement and will be a nice change of pace for students who are tired of anything called "grammar." 23 well-known landmarks (Statue of Liberty, Eiffel Tower, Niagara Falls, etc.) described in a brief informational paragraph become the basis for exercises that review, instruct, and practice aspects of grammar that are particularly troublesome. For instance, the segment on the Liberty Bell focuses on making pronouns agree with antecedents. A three-point instructional snippet prepares the student for four sections of exercises (30 sentences total) that tell the student to "select the correct pronoun;" "choose the correct subject or object pronoun;" add an 's or an ' to show possession;" or circle the letter of the section that contains an error." All 30 sentences pertain in some way to the Liberty Bell, providing significant additional information to the initial paragraph. Answers to all exercises are included.

    Grammar coverage is systematic and comprehensive although not intense (no diagramming) and includes parts of speech, types of sentences, capitalization, punctuation, troublesome usage, homophones and more. This is would be a great change-up for students tired of grammar or for those following a Charlotte Mason approach to usage-based grammar or as a review/refresher for practically anyone. (And, by the way, the whole CC thing seems to have been attached because of the informational texts that are utilized – a big thing for CCSS.) 86 pgs, spiral-bound, consumable. ~ Janice

    The history of America is full of exciting, amazing stories depicting courage, determination, and desire - things it would seem the early pioneers and settlers had in abundance as they set themselves up in this new land. This book features clear, easy to read language accompanied by brightly colored illustrations as it shares the story of how the Revolutionary war began and some of the events involved in winning American freedom. Enjoyable and educational. 37 pgs. ~ Zach

    Make your own paper models! Heavy, embossed, crisp white cardstock is die-cut with tabs on the sides to assemble your own Eiffel Tower, Big Ben and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. They are quite elegant-looking in white, but you can use chalks, crayons, paints or colored pencils to color or rub for interesting effects. Each model goes together easily with tabs/slots. You can also glue them together if you'd like. A cool addition to a unit study on Europe or the World Wars, these are a great gift item for any Euro-phile! Add them to a unit on famous artists or any art class you are using. I would use them to decorate a classroom! ~ Sara

    Hold American landmarks in the palm of your hand! This book contains 16 miniature cardstock replicas of famous U.S. buildings from coast to coast. Scales range from 1:300 to 1:3000, and the book progresses from the easiest model to the more challenging projects. The pieces are labeled with standard paper-folding symbols and are ready for you to cut out, fold, and glue. A short history of each building is listed on the top of each page, and the back of the book provides a reference explaining the symbols and providing additional paper-folding tips. Once you've mastered the Washington Monument and Transamerica Pyramid, you'll be ready to tackle the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, or Monticello. ~ Lisa

    If you're looking to supplement your history curriculum with a little U.S. geography, this is an easy way to do it. Each state is given a page of description, including the first explorations of the state, a brief history, major industries, and famous people that were born there, as well as other assorted facts, and the major statistics on the state in a small box at the bottom. The facing page features 10 questions about the preceding page of information, as well as a map activity, requiring the student to locate important cities and landmarks on an outline map of the state. Several related topics appropriate for a short report are also listed. Unlike many other state studies, this one features the U.S. territories of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, and other minor territories. Also, additional map exercises are given for groups of states, to be completed on outline maps also included. Last but not least, an answer key is located in the back of the book. Worksheets are reproducible.

    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

    This clearly written, bilingual textbook introduces students to the fascinating cultures of the Mayans and Aztecs. The text is parallel, with the left-hand page presented in English and the right-hand page translated into Spanish. Black and white maps and photos of historical artifacts and landmarks are included as well. The text begins chronologically, covering the different periods of ancient Mayan history. Then it proceeds to the Mayan lifestyle, building methods, and encounters with the Spaniards. From there, Aztec history is covered, including topics such as government, religion, rulers, language, and the end of the Aztec empire. Multiple-choice quizzes appear at the end of each chapter, and websites for further research appear throughout the text as well. (Please note: at this time, there appears to be no answer key available for the quizzes in the book. However, the answers to the quizzes can be deduced from a close reading of the relevant chapter.)

    Learn the history behind our country's most important places, interesting objects, national holidays, and inspiring words with this colorful book. It begins by defining the meaning of the word "symbol," then progresses to explaining the meaning and historical background of over twenty US symbols. Plymouth Rock, the Statue of Liberty, our flag, the Liberty Bell, the Declaration of Independence, and the National Anthem are some of the topics covered. Each topic is explained in about two to four pages and is enhanced with colorful (sometimes humorous) illustrations. The last section of the book explains the origin of nine US holidays, including the date each was first celebrated. The back of the book includes a glossary, index, list of books to read, and a dedication page explaining the symbolism of New York's World Trade Center and 9/11/01.
