Category Description for History Pockets:

Supplement your elementary studies of history with memorable activities and a personalized book of projects and the facts they’ve learned. Each book is divided up into a series of units, each unit representing one pocket in their book. Each unit contains several parts, including an overview page for you, and then a title for the pocket, a “Fast Facts” bookmark or picture dictionary cards, an “About…” page or small booklet to read and discuss on the topic, an “Art Reference Page” (for the upper levels), and various activities to complete and include in your pocket. For example, in the Native Americans book, in the Tlingit unit, there’s a title for the pocket along with several picture dictionary cards, a fact sheet, a booklet with illustrations for the child to color, and then two craft projects - creating a potlatch mask that the Tlingits wear to special occasions, as well as a totem pole layer book. A selection of pocket contents from an upper grade book such Ancient Egypt in the “Daily Life” unit would include a pocket title, ‘Fast Facts” bookmark with facts about life in ancient Egypt, an “About Daily Life” sheet to read, an art page featuring ancient Egyptian clothing, and activities including dressing a figure in ancient Egyptian clothing, making a necklace of six important Egyptian symbols, and making a small book on ancient Egyptian dwellings. Most projects, patterns, and everything else to be included in the pockets are reproducible for your own use. All the pieces you need in this book are included for your use, and there are very few (if any) time-consuming projects, as most of them require only a paper pattern copied from the book and used, making this an easy way to combine some hands-on extra fun and personality into your history study, without expending a lot of time and effort on projects, for moms running a little short on time.

We used the American Revolution History Pockets and my kids enjoyed the activities and projects while we studied Early American History this year.

We are learning about the Civil War and this book looks like it will help us focus and learn on key things while having something to look back on.

How long does it take to complete the packet? How many lessons does it include, and how long for each lesson on average?
Catherine K on Feb 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There are seven "pockets" in this books. Each pocket represents a unit. There is flexibility in terms of how long you would take to complete it so it could be adapted/adjusted to augment your text time period (i.e. one pocket per week or per day). I would assume a "pocket" would take 30 min to an hour to complete.
