The kids and I really enjoy history. We currently had the chance to review a christian history fiction book called Shepherd, Potter, Spy — and the Star Namer by Peggy Consolver – Author. This book was biblically brought to life in a the most unique way ever. This book is geared for middle school to adult.
Does your family like board games? My kids love playing board games. We try to make a night each week to have a little family time and take a break from all the electronics. I am really excited to share a brand new game called Commissioned by Chara Games. This game has a christian theme and is best suited for teens and adults.
If you enjoy doing Lapbooks with your kids, I highly suggest checking out the variety from Home School in the Woods. We recently received a digital copy of HISTORY Through the Ages Hands-on History Lap-Pak: U.S. Elections. The suggested age group for this particular pack is grades 3 – 8.
This Lap-Pak introduces your child to the United States presidential elections process through hands-on activities. It takes a brief look at the structure of the government and then goes into election process. The nice thing is it gives you a little bit of history as it was established as well. It also explains how the president is chosen.
History is one of our favorite subjects in this house. When looking at curriculum for history, I try to find ones that seem intriguing and involve hands on activities. Home School in the Woods has some really awesome projects for history. We are currently working on Project Passport World History Study: Ancient Egypt. You can spread this across 8 – 12 weeks. This particular project is for grades 3 – 8.
Welcome to Week 3 of the Virtual Curriculum Fair. This week our topic is Exploring Our World – Social Studies and More Science. The Virtual Curriculum Fair is hosted by Homeschooling Hearts and Minds. In Week 2 I have covered what we used for science so I won’t go into further detail in repeating it again this week.
