    If you crossed a common, ordinary pocket microscope with a Swiss Army knife, you just might end up with the X-Scope. Truly the "Cadillac" of magnification tools, this handy little pocket-size 30x microscope also includes an 8x pull-out telescope, a 9x magnifying hand lens, a clock, a whistle, a compass and a flashlight! Ok, if you aren't bedazzled with all those extra features, you will definitely be impressed with the quality of magnification and the bright, sharp viewing provided by the LED bulb. Just flip the light switch, place the object you want to observe underneath, and look through the lens on the top. Compared to other pocket microscopes in our office, this one allowed us to see all those Asian beetles in our office in much more detail! Jess

    Looking for a solidly Christian and academically complete health and nutrition course for your high schooler? You may have just found it! Although this course was not available for an independent review prior to our catalog printing, it appears this course will meet the academic and value needs of homeschool families. Beginning with an overview of anatomy and physiology, this courses scope includes senses, genetics, macro and micro nutrients, exercise and diet. Emotional issues and mental illness, human value, culture, gender roles, families, socialization, communication skills and conflict resolution skills are also covered. Reproductive anatomy and physiology are covered including accurate illustrations and descriptions. Marriage, sexuality, pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases are discerningly explained, along with alcohol and drug abuse, depression, pornography and other topics necessary for our young people to understand for successful navigation in adulthood. This is handled gently, and respectfully, but parents should evaluate their young adults emotional and spiritual maturity prior to lessons. Over 50 projects are included in the text/student notebook which will not require a lab kit. The publisher states this will not meet a high school science lab credit.

    Unlike other Apologia courses, the Student Notebook is required for this course. Solutions are available online with course purchase. Apologia recommends the course be taken concurrently with their 9th grade Biology. Parents should discern their young person's ability and maturity. This one-year course will meet your transcript needs and prepare your student for college level courses. ~ Deanne

    Exactly what was needed in the Apologia elementary science scope and sequence – the Human Body. We waited awhile for this, but it was worth the wait (as we knew it would be). Continuing their pattern of in-depth studies, exciting information, engaging activities, and biblical worldview, this latest course examines the body systems – skeletal, muscular, respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, nervous – along with nutrition, health, embryology, the immune system, and the major organs. It also provides a brief history of medicine and an introduction to cell structure and DNA. Activities within the fourteen lessons include finding blood type, making a cell model, and building a skeleton. Oh! And be prepared! Your student will be looking for household bacteria. ~ Janice

    This awesome bow allows you to shoot arrows over 100 feet! Don't worry, the three arrows included are made from soft foam, so they shouldn't cause too much damage. The bow is 2 feet tall and arrows are 15" long, so they're large enough for some realistic shooting. The bow is springy but durable and has many cool features; there's a wrist guard that helps you line up the arrows, a strong guide cord, and two power cords to give extra power. The design works for both right and left handed shooters and is a great option if you're looking for a shooting toy because it's accurate and has a long range.

    Now there's no reason to wait until your student is in 3rd grade. Bible Heroes is an excellent language arts bridge from IEW's Primary Arts of Language to their theme-based writing lessons. Or you might decide to use it as a new entry point for the IEW program (as you finish your favorite phonics/reading program). Either way, I think you will be very pleased with what this program supplies – lessons that not only provide instruction in writing with structure and style (as the name implies), but also introductory grammar and Bible. The 27 lessons cover IEW Unit 1 (two lessons teaching Key Word Outlines), Unit 2 (seven lessons on Writing from KWOs), Unit 3 (twelve lessons on Summarizing Narrative Stories), Unit 4 (three lessons on Summarizing References), Unit 5 (three lessons on Writing From Pictures), and Unit 7 (one lesson on Creative Writing) The approach is solidly multi-sensory. Lessons include verbal and written activities as well as games for reinforcement and all source material is taken from the Bible. Although the target audience for this course is 1st-2nd grade, material can be adapted for up to 5th grade.

    The consumable Student Book provides instructions which are to be read to the student, additional gray boxes that have notes to the teacher, and space for students to complete lessons and writing assignments. Appendices include: styles helps, game pieces (cardstock), and vocabulary cards (also cardstock).

    Purchasers of this course have access to two free downloads from the IEW website. One of the downloads is the Student Resource Notebook (also available for purchase in hard copy format). It provides supplementary and reference material needed by the student. The other download is the Bible Heroes Teacher's E-book; this Teacher's Manual is a vital part of the course and its use is expected. It provides more detailed instructions for each lesson, a scope and sequence chart, ideas for discussion of each hero and virtue, answers to review questions, sample key word outlines, brainstorming pages, instruction for games and activities, copies of checklists, and copies of game boards. ~ Janice

    As a child, the travel map we used had a picture atlas on the exterior. I spent so much time pouring over that cover that I still remember, as a result, which states produce oil. Here’s an opportunity to provide that experience for your elementary children. The actual atlas is in the first 24 pages. The remaining pages are filled with over 350 stickers to place in the appropriate atlas location. Children can easily find the correct location by finding the “shadowed” picture of the sticker. But it’s not just pictures here! Each map has information and details regarding animals, culture and geographical locations in small, clear print. Maps include one of the world; Western and Eastern Europe; North and South Africa; Western and Eastern Asia; North and Central America; South America; Australasia and Oceania; the Antarctic and Antarctica. End the book with a brief world quiz to test your new knowledge. Once done, you’ll have a picture atlas to continually use! Just wonderful! 9 3/8” x 12”, 34 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    What’s your favorite school subject?  Geography?  Well, um, er...no.  That attitude could change with this guide, brainchild of Maggie Hogan (co-author of Hands-on Geography) and Cindy Wiggers (of Geography Matters).  This curriculum is designed to incorporate geography with other school subjects so that it will be relevant and memorable, not isolated and disjointed.  First, the authors impart enthusiasm for the subject matter, give the teacher a geography refresher course, and then provide practical, interesting, even (dare I say it) fun ways to intertwine geography with other subjects.  Included are teaching tips, geography basics, lesson plans, reproducible activity pages and outline maps, a timeline with 300+ figures, all in a convenient digital PDF format, accessible with the serial number found on the inside back cover of the book.  Chapter 7 includes a unit study for Hans Brinker or The Silver Skates, so you will need a copy of that book as well. As protection for the overachieving teacher, a scope and sequence limits the amount of activities to be used in any one year. Please note that all printables are included online as downloadable PDFs, making the the book itself much smaller. All forms, resources and consumables that are available as PDFs are noted as such in the margins of the book. Just register the serial number inside the back cover and you will receive a link to download the PDFs. With so many tips, activity suggestions, lesson plans and more for grades K-12, this is a well-designed and helpful product.

    This tool is made to be used with standard 1cm base-ten blocks to help children think of whole numbers from 1-199 in terms of hundreds, tens, and ones. The sturdy blue foam frame (11"x 7") comes with 21 number tiles (digits 0-9). Using standard base ten units, rods and flats with the number tiles helps your child picture the numbers more clearly as they place the blocks into the three sections of the frame and attach a number tile to them – a definite plus for a student who is struggling with place value as a concept. A small guide with activities and noting CCSS correlations is included in the set. Number tiles are about an inch square and 10mm thick. Base-ten blocks are not included. ~ Sara

    Perhaps this text was part of my elementary education. The timing fits – and it would explain why the events lovingly memorialized in this publication are still firmly planted in my memory. First published in 1955 and now republished by Beautiful Feet, utilizing the historical accuracy and storytelling ability of Earl Schenck Miers and the amazing illustrations of James Daugherty (full-color, inked drawings), this book takes the reader through tales of adventure, heroism, and patriotism. From Leif's Viking boat explorations of the northeastern coastline to the atom bomb's close to the second World War, you will read about everything in between – explorers, founders, soldiers, adventurers, settlers, inventors, statesmen, educators, and many more – in the fifty stories that make up this 315 pg, paperback book. A worthy addition to your home library or ideal for any literature-based history course or unit study, the author himself sums up its scope: "…everywhere signs of the greatness of God. It is indeed the one truth in which we all believe. It is indeed our richest heritage." ~ Janice
