Category Description for Famous Figures of _______ Times:

I'm not an arts and crafts sort of gal. There's not much that will get my fingers itching for a pair of scissors. But, you guessed it; these did. First of all, the art work is wonderful - accurately detailed and colorful. Secondly, the figures look like they would be fun and satisfying to make and use (they move). Thirdly, I could imagine my kids (as they used to be) engaged in hours of creative play with the figures - over and above any use we might make of them with historical studies. And yes, I suppose I should mention that they were probably created to be used with history unit studies (an MOH customer/mom first mentioned them to us). The book (designed to be disassembled and the figures cut out) is of heavyweight cardstock. There are two sets of each figure - one full-color, and one black-and-white line art to be colored in (definitely a colored pencil project). At the front of the book is a pictorial guide to each figure that includes a detailed biographical sketch and a companion reading list for each figure (read-aloud as well as independent reading). There are complete instructions for assembling - using small brads or eyelets - with a letter key printed on the back of each figure for easy assembly. A hole punch and fasteners are required for assembly. ~ Janice

I feel children absorb so much more info when they can use their hands to manipulate something that directly relates to the subject being introduced. This is perfect for that!

My daughter loves the Famous Figures of Ancient Time book. It has enhanced our history studies so much that I plan to use the others in the series.

I used the Ancient Figures along with Story of the World with my son last year for first grade. He loved the days when he got to build a puppet and I believe they helped him retain information about historical figures better than if he had not had something tangible.

"We use this in conjunction with our Story of the World audio books. The kids enjoy building them, playing with them, and we also hang them on the wall to remind us of the history stories."

We are about to Start the Medieval Section in our History, and found that this was a fun way to supplement The Story Of the World.

It seemed like it had great resources to help the kids remember the various people we'll read about. My son also needed to research Leif Erikson, and a shorter passage on him will be easier for him since he is still young.

We loved the Famous Figures from the Ancient time period, and we're looking forward to using these on our timeline next year.

Great quality
These are really nice paper figures. There are 2 versions of each, one pre-colored, one uncolored so your child can color them as desired. The paper is nice and thick, and they make a nice wall display next to our timeline.
