This set is for children in middle school, although advanced fifth graders will also enjoy it. The box includes an encyclopedia, historical fiction books, non-fiction books, games, and a digital activity book (emailed upon purchase).
This course looks at major events and time periods from Exploration to Modern Times but explores them in more depth with advanced books and activities. The digital activity book includes maps, charts, book reviews, illustrations, journaling, analysis, word searches, writing prompts, and comparing and contrasting activities.
We also ask students to write book reports and do a final project with short answer questions and a timeline activity. For parents, we include a page titled “What your child should know” at the beginning of each section and another titled “Questions to ask your child” at the end of each section. Use these to generate family discussion and debate.
Some expats qualify for reimbursement for history kits for their children. Please let us know if you think you might qualify and we will provide you with the necessary paperwork and contacts.
