While the "Classic" History Portfolios are intended for 3rd grade and up, Junior Portfolios offer even younger children the opportunity to complete their own portfolios, too. Designed as a gentle introduction to both history and notebooking and very similar to the original History Portfolios, these contain more age-appropriate writing spaces as well as suggested material for three ability levels. A Parent Guide and Materials are included right in the book (back portion), but can be removed to allow the student to "own" his portfolio. History selections are coordinated with the Story of the World, but could be used with other history materials. Both Junior and "classic" History Portfolios are now bound in 3-ring binders for extra flexibility.
