History Thru the Ages Project Passports
An excellent supplement for hands-on learners, this series from Homeschool in the Woods will bring a fresh enthusiasm to your history studies. Each CD-Rom contains printable PDF files which include the Guide Book Text, lapbook templates, notebooking pages, recommended book/DVD lists and audio files. Within the pages of the guide book text is the "travel" itinerary, which includes tips and a planner so you can prepare ahead of time for the 25 lessons (called Stops). Each Stop includes fact filled, engaging readings which are created to be all you need for a compact or supplementary study. Many of the 'stops' also offer more than one project allowing you and your children options along the way. While some of the projects will require students to research further, others have all the necessary information provided.
Activities vary and include creative writing, recipes, mapping activities, timelines, games, notebook activities, crafts, and lapbooks. Masters, detailed instructions, illustrations, and photos of finished products are all included to fully equip the parent for a successful hands-on history experience. An additional resource section offers a recommended resource lists for books, videos, nonfiction books and websites, and additional research suggestions for parents/students who want to become further immersed in the time period being studied. Currently there are two Project Passports available, and we are hopeful more will be added, as they provide a wonderful alternative to dry textbook learning! Reproducible for immediate family use only. ~Deanne
