State History from a Christian Perspective

Considering the fact that its a subject almost everyone has to study some time, its been surprising that there are so few really good state histories available. Well, thankfully, with State History from a Christian Perspective, the whole family can learn the history of your state (or any state) at the same time. Each student prepares a project notebook in keeping with his grade level and abilities. Ages 4 through Grade 2 can use the My State History Funbook. Grades 3 through 12 will use the State History Sets (with teacher direction) and can prepare a project notebook in a separate binder. Older grades (7th through 12th) using the same State History Sets can prepare a project notebook in a binder as an independent study. Theres even an option for using ABekas My State Notebook. This state history material from Helping Hand provides a lot of flexibility think field trips, local museums, and pictures here. You can teach different levels simultaneously and you can study through different states simultaneously. Furthermore, you can choose your own course length its easy to adjust the programs 30 lessons for a six week session or up to a full year. You can also adjust the difficulty level for the individuals in the family. There is even an option for a six week independent study on your states constitution.

There are two "hearts" to this program. For the teacher, its the Master Lesson Plan Book. This is the booklet (spiral-bound, 60 pgs) that provides an overview of the study and the instruction for all the different study options. It also provides the lessons - thirty of them, each with steps for your young child (PK-grade 2) using the My State History Funbook and for your older children (grades 3-12) using the Student Booklet plus expansion suggestions for each lesson. Getting Started information is provided and then it moves into detailed lesson plans which cover interesting facts; geography and geographic features; flower/bird/motto etc; weather; early history exploration and settlement; history timelines and events; people, landmarks, major cities, state and local government; capital city; industry; careers; plants and animals.

The second "heart" of the program is the Student Booklet for your state or the state you wish to study. These "booklets" are really a 130 page resource/worktext. Plan on one for each student. In addition to supplying all the textual information for the various topics covered, these books also provide full color pictures (seal, flag, flower, etc) to be used in the project notebook as well as six quizzes and two exams (non-reproducible, answer keys included).

My State History Funbook is designed for the youngest age range (age 4 to Grade 2). The actual funbook itself is generic a spiral-bound blank set of templates all ready to receive your state-specific information. The accompanying activity pages provide some of that information as well as page by page instructions that correlate with the daily lessons from the Master Lesson Plan Book (you can use this course alongside the upper-level books or as a stand-alone course). Parents/teachers are encouraged to "round-up" much of the rest from tourist literature, the internet, and even by taking pictures of their children at various field trip locations. These are a variety of materials full-color pictures to cut out and paste, map puzzles, specific tidbits of interesting information, and other material to cut and paste. The pages are a variety of colors to add interest to the finished Funbook project. The idea is to make it both a personalized and a comprehensive compilation of facts, history, geography, and trivia.

The State History Set provides the Master Lesson Plan Book plus a particular states Student Booklet and is available for each of the fifty states. The My State History Funbook sets are also available for each of the states. Extra Student Booklets for additional students in your family (each student needs one) are available as needed. ~ Janice
