    What could be a more appropriate activity to accompany your study of Ancient Egypt than making your own papyrus? This kit includes instructions and enough strips of Egyptian papyrus stem to create one sheet of papyrus. The process takes several days, and a lot of soaking, but when you're done, you can use your sheet of authentic papyrus for your own unique Egyptian work of art, or a scroll! Please note that this kit does have a distinctive salty, dried-plant "aroma" which may be more offensive to some noses than others. ~ Jess

    Ever wonder what owls eat? Dissect an owl pellet and find out! Owls regurgitate the indigestible remains of their meals, which make their diet easy to investigate. This pouch contains one sanitary owl pellet and a bone chart. Use a tweezers or other small tool (not included) to dissect the pellet and then identify the remains using the chart. However, if you're grossed out by the "real thing," you may want to check out the Skeleton Pellets, which are synthetic versions of owl pellets with one (non-surprise) animal skeleton inside. - Jess

    Create your own long lasting, professional looking book! The IlluStory A+ kit contains non-toxic, washable markers, writing pages, instructions, hints, a story planner, and a postage paid envelope. Write your story, then illustrate it. When you're finished, mail it in (at no additional charge) for completion and production. They'll typeset and bind your book, returning a 7" x 9" hardcover book that even has a place for a dedication. The kit produces an 18 page book, and the author's bio can be placed on the back cover.

    Authors have the choice of either creating their book by hand using the materials in the kit, or producing their book online using the company's website. Working online allows kids to upload photos or scanned images and use digital drawing tools and effects (like speech bubbles, pre-designed backgrounds and more). Designing online also allows them to place more text on each page (there are per-page word limits for hard copy bookmaking). Planning sheets, informational sheets on types of writing and quite a few "story web" graphic organizers flesh out the contents of IlluStory A+ and may be helpful to tie the project in with your current writing curriculum. Next step, the Library of Congress! - Megan

    Early in our nation's history, the primary reason for education was to allow each person to read the Bible for himself. In the same spirit comes this complete first grade curriculum. While it incorporates history, science, art, and math, the heart of the program is phonics-based reading instruction with Biblical emphasis. This program was revised in 2013 and features a new title, changes to the teacher's manual and new package resources.

    Phonics instruction begins with a quick review of letter names and sounds using full-color alphabet flash cards, then follows with in-depth, step-by-step teaching of all phonics constructs. Phonics lesson plans teach new skills while reviewing previously-learned skills. By Lesson 31, students are able to read Bible stories in a special beginning Bible Reader. The reader uses a thematic approach to teach Bible history in chronological order from Genesis to Revelation. Students are expected to retell the Bible story, and then create a keepsake Bible notebook in which they summarize and illustrate Bible stories. (Linda used a similar approach years ago to teach Bible to our older children, and they enjoyed it very much.) Weekly memory verses selected from Proverbs help to develop character and handwriting at the same time. Hands-on projects are designed to help children understand the world of the Bible. These include creating timelines using the included figures, making Bible times costumes, and celebrating a Sabbath meal. Science focuses on the wonders of God's creation, and uses three Usborne books (Things Outdoors, Science with Water, and Science with Plants), which are included with the curriculum. Math incorporates hands-on activities, math manipulatives and a math workbook (Complete Book of Math Gr. 1-2). If you prefer a more serious approach to math (as we do), you can add another math program.

    The Deluxe Package includes the Teacher's Manual; student book; student worksheets; a Bible Notebook; Bible Reader; Complete Book of Math Gr. 1-2; My Big Book of 5-Minute Devotions; Unifix Cubes; a small geared clock; addition and subtraction flashcards; wood pattern blocks; Pattern Animals; Things Outdoors; Science with Water; Science with Plants; Honey for a Child's Heart; Peter and the Wolf CD; Enjoying Art Together; and Drawing with Children. ~ Bob

    Robots are everywhere! Not just in toy stores or science fiction movies; did you know that robots are also in hospitals, factories, household appliances, and outer space? Through hands-on projects, Robotics teaches kids about the many functions of robots in science, technology, math, and everyday life. Each chapter focuses on a different topic, such as robot development, bodies, motion, and sensors. The text manages to be technical while remaining accessible and kid-friendly. Each chapter includes diagrams, fun facts, and bolded vocabulary words keyed to "Words to Know" glossary boxes. Twenty projects are included for kids to build their own robots, each containing an overview, list of supplies, and step-by-step instructions. While you'll likely have some of the more common items around the house, you'll probably need to make a trip to the hardware or hobby store for some (unless you already have DC motors or extra electrical wire lying around!) The book also suggests dollar stores as a resource for inexpensive motors and such, gained from cheap hand-held electric fans, keychain lights, and other items that can be taken apart for parts. You can even use salvaged parts from recycled toys and other household devices for some of the projects! Projects include: Art-Making Vibrobot, Hack a Line-Following Robot Car, Robotic Arm, Rolling Ball Tilt Sensor, and Binary Bead Jewelry. Several "pen and paper" Logo programming projects are included as well. The front of the book includes a robotics timeline; glossary, list of resources, and index are located in the back. Whether you complete all of the projects, or just a few, the information alone makes for a great read and is sure to spark curiosity in the STEM fields. ~ Lisa
