     This two-sided dry erase map board features a white outline of the fifty states that is printed on a light blue background on one side, with the reverse side functioning as an ordinary whiteboard. The board is a nice size, and it is sturdy for use with young students. Use with a fine-tip dry erase marker for labeling states and capitals, or bring out the colors to mark geographical features such as mountains, rivers, or even notable landmarks such as the Grand Canyon or Mt. Rushmore. Measures 18” x 12”. ~ Mike

    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

    Learn about each of the 50 states as you wind your way through challenging mazes! Arranged alphabetically, each page contains a large maze in the shape of the featured state.

     This Thinking Tree notebook is really DIY: in content and in how you choose to complete it. There are 6 pages to accomplish the same tasks for each of the 50 states. Begin with coloring in the state on a US outline map with the capital, population and state motto. Then, fill in boxes with facts – current events, what to see, the flag, famous quote, monuments and popular foods. Next, identify the locations of the capital and other large cities, important landmarks, national parks, major highways and rivers, and anything else you find interesting. The following page documents historical events, famous people, draw the state seal and design a postage stamp. Then read a state-oriented book and summarize a scene and/or watch a movie and draw a scene (you’ll need to do your own research; no suggestions provided). The final page is titled, “What do you want to do in ___?” Note that these outside resources are required: your choice of various library books and documentaries/movies, Google Earth, Wikipedia, a U.S. atlas, a U.S. map, colored pencils or gel pens, black pens and #2 pencils. Pages are reproducible within your home/family. 8.5x11”, black & white, sc. ~ Sara

      This very detailed book starts off by getting the reader to look around them and think about how far technology has brought us in how comfortably we live. Today, we take running water and electricity for granted. Buildings were adapted for safety and a need to house the population. Illustrations and a very well-written text walk you through various man-made structures. Several pages even fold out to show a larger illustration. Some notable buildings include the Pyramid of Djoser in Egypt, various temples of Greece, the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Notre Dame in Paris, the Forbidden City in Beijing and lots more. You don’t just read about the architecture, you learn about the individual artisans who worked together, who paid for the structures, and problems that arose during construction. There is so much historical information, you could add this to about any world history curriculum or even create an original unit study around this beautiful hardcover book! Author Patrick Dillon, illustrated by Stephen Biesty. Hc, 10” x 11.5”, 95pp. ~ Sara

    With 4 new boards, 4 new landmarks (Quarry, Caravan, Village, and Garden), 3 new objective cards, 2 replacement objective cards, and 15 all-new nomad tiles, get ready to welcome even more Kingdom Builder variations! The main addition in this expansion comes from the nomad tiles. Before the game all nomad tiles are shuffled and placed on nomad spaces. When a player reaches one of these nomad spaces, the tile is acquired and the player can use the special action listed—but only on the next round! These actions include moving settlements, adding extra settlements, removing opponents’ settlements, or gaining points.

    New in-game objective cards (which are scored during the game, and not after) add incentive to place settlements in a certain manner, such as filling terrains and placing next to other players or in straight lines. Finally, four additional landmarks give players the ability to: block spaces with stone walls, move settlements until blocked by an object, build a settlement adjacent to three others, and build an additional settlement on a flower space. Additionally, Nomads includes a new set of red playing pieces, allowing up to five players. Expect more cutthroat strategies, bold moves, and a whole lot more variation from your Kingdom Builder games!

    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
