We used the "Moving West" History Pockets this year for my 8 & 10 year olds It was by far their favorite subject they would ask for it everyday Very easy to use and interesting I read additional info from other books while they worked on their projects Great for all learning styles I will definitely use them again next year

We love History Pockets! Last year we used Ancient Civilizations in our co-op class This year we've done Native Americans and have begun working on Life in Plymouth Colony My 8-year old daughter BEGS to do history all the time The material is presented in an easy-to-use manner making it easy to teach multiple grades when needed We also found it easy to expand the units by picking up books and videos from the library Other than the photocopying (and optional library trips) there's not much preparation time needed As far as curriculum goes this is inexpensive and worth much more than it actually costs! My daughter loves the hands-on projects maps and such and the vocabulary/dictionary projects for each book are really useful in helping the kids remember the key points and new words they've learned in that unit I would recommend this series to anyone! (Also check out their ScienceWorks series -- similar to the History Pockets but covering science topics -- they're great too!)

I cannot say enough about History Pockets! This was such a fun way to study the history of ancient civilizations for my 8 year old son Included in our book were the subjects: What is History Ancient Mesopotamia Egypt Greece Rome China and the Aztec World Each subject is divided into a "pocket" (basically a folder) which is made from a piece of folded construction paper In each pocket you place the completed works of your studies Each subject contains a teacher's overview which describes the activities presented in each pocket Also included is a Teacher Fact Sheet with background information which can be used as a reference for activities in each pocket Each pocket contains a label children can color and 'Words to Know' which includes some basic vocabulary relevent to each particular civilization Pockets also include a student booklet which gives basic information about each civilization and explains the vocabulary in the 'Words to Know' section Each civilization pocket includes activities such as coloring a picture of people in their native dress (which you can laminate and use as a puppet) making a post card from the ancient civilization (where children can relate what they've learned) and additional activites such as Life along the Nile (Egypt) Make a Parthenon Shape Book (Greece) Dancing Dragon for the Chinese New Year and making the Aztec Calendar The book ends with students making a 'Passport to the Ancient Civilizations' where they can make a picture and describe what they liked most about each history pocket Simple elegant and easy to use that is why I LOVE History Pockets Just about everything you need is included in this booklet and all you need to do is make enough photocopies for everyone! The Ancient Civilizations History Pockets is for grades 1-3 and I believe it would easily work well for all grades My preschooler has especially enjoyed coloring the people and using them as puppets The only items we really had to provide were construction paper glue and crayons The best thing about History Pockets is that it is simple information for lower grades but in actuality it more than served its purpose by picquing the interest of my 8 year old to further investigate these civilizations with books and videos from our local library It's art history social studies reading writing vocabulary and math (because you can learn to count to 10 in Chinese)! We cannot wait to start our Native American History Pockets!

This book went along very well with Story of the World volume 1 as a form of lap booking. It was easy and fun for my kids. It reinforced our history lessons from story of the world.
