Explore History! Series

This fun series combines interesting text with creative hands-on activities. Each book is divided into a handful of chapters covering an array of different topics. For example, the Ancient Rome book is split into the following eight chapters: Let's Explore Rome!, Home Sweet Villa, Eat Like a Roman, Time for School, Be Glad You're Not a Gladiator!, High Fashion, Emperors Rule!, and Gods and Goddesses. As you can tell by the chapter As you can tell by the chapter titles, the text is high-interest as well as informative. The pages of text are also sprinkled with black and white “fun” illustrations, cool facts, bold “words to know,” and jokes. After a few pages of text, each chapter includes a few activity ideas. These include recipes (such as making a round loaf of bread or a tasty version of a dormice dish), fun projects (like making your own marbles or a toga), and engaging activities (such as holding a Roman dinner party where everyone lounges on cushions and eats finger food or bartering like they did in Ancient times by making homemade items to trade with family or friends). The Colonial America book includes information about Native Americans and the colonists, plus fun projects such as making your own butter, candles, and johnnycakes. With a nice mix of reading and doing, these books will be enjoyed from start to finish. Approx. 90 pgs. – Melissa
