My son absolutely hated history before we started this. I was bound and determined this year to take a more textbook approach. After a few months of that I realized that I didn't even remember one single thing that we had been learning over the past 3 months. So, then I started questioning my children about what we had learned in history so far and they didn't remember anything either. So, it was back to the drawing board to find something else. Our local homeschool store recommended your program and I have to say that all 3 (13, 12, & 8) of my kids love it. My oldest son (13) said that for the first time he actually feels like he is learning something about history! - Terry Wallen

Also included are teacher helps, resource lists, teacher keys, and a "guide-at-a-glance." This one-page guide will allow the teacher to see the whole schedule of upcoming topics and projects on one page. Tastefully laid out for inclusion in your three-ring binder, this unit study will give both the teacher and students a thorough, exciting adventure into the past!

Included is a notebook cover made to slip into the clear cover of your 3-ring binder. The art is provided both in color and in black and white for the student to color in.

The teacher's binder will house the reading text, project direction pages, the "Guide-at-a-Glance," teacher keys, and any of the other teacher helps.

The student will accumulate many notebook items specific to each lesson. Included are activities such as a hornbook, map of the colonies, Apothecary Shoppe, rope bed with a straw tick and woven blanket, Nine Men's Morris (game), Digging up the Past, various colonial art projects, dye chart, city postcards, and more!

Suggested grades 3-8.
