My kids have always been into Astronomy. My daughter is more curious then my son, as she is always wanting to go outside to look at the stars to see what we can find. We had the chance to review the Book of Astronomy Set by Memoria Press. This is geared towards kids in grades 3 – 5.
I received the Student Book and the Teacher Book. The Teachers Book is set up the same way the Student book is, except that it has answers in it. In this program the kids will learn about constellations, the motion of earth, names of stars, as well as which season you will see the constellations, for example the Summer Triangle and the Winter Zodiacs.
My kids had no idea that learning how to make sculptures could be so fun and messy at the same time. We received the Sculpture Technique Model book by ARTistic Pursuits, Inc. for this review. This particular book is geared for kids in upper elementary through high school. If your looking to add art to your homeschool curriculum I high suggest checking out ARTistic Pursuits as your child will learn a lot about art and have fun at the same time.
My daughter has always had a love for music. When she was little we bought her DVDs that played classic music and to this day she still loves listening to it. I am happy to say that with her love for classical music we have been able to do composer studies using Music Appreciation Book 1: Elementary Grades by Zeezok Publishing LLC. This really has been a great addition to our music curriculum in our homeschool. This is great for children in grades 1 – 6.
It’s that time of year where I would rather be bear foot then to have to wear socks and shoes. The only thing is my heals crack and are really dry. I don’t like to use those pumice stones, as I don’t like sitting there to scrub the dry stuff off my feet. I was really excited when the GREEMU by Devonian came up for review. I wanted to see just how it would work on my heels. GREEMU is an alternative to emu oil. It is a 100% natural blend of plant oils.
One of the things we really enjoy in our history class is to read different biographies about people from the past. YWAM Publishing has a nice variety of different biographies of both men and women of history. For this particular review we received the book Heroes of History – Christopher Columbus and a digital copy of the Unit Study Curriculum Guide. This book is for ages 10 and older.
