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 are using BJU Heritage Studies this year and will focus on early US History, so I thought this would be a great resource to integrate into our units.

We already have one for one student and I liked it so I wanted another for another student.

I chose these History Pockets to supplement our study of Early American history. I was very disappointed to see much false information was in this book and will avoid these in the future. I'm wondering if it's because of the common core standards to which it is now correlated. I chose to use some of the ideas with my children, but we sought out the truth through historical documents and made our own projects from the facts.

Love these!
We did this with our coop and loved it. Great hands on for smaller kids. We laminated the cover and back page and made a scrapbook out of them. It’s a great keepsake.
