Category Description for Time Travelers History Study CD's:

These supplemental activities are a hands-on way to explore history. Just pop the CD-ROM into your computer, and you can explore and use the .pdf files as you see fit. The format is easy to use - the first screen that opens up is a contents page, allowing you to read the introduction, tips, teacher helps or, if you feel like just jumping right on in, you can scroll down and go straight to any of the 25 lessons. This first page also gives you lap book instructions, a gallery of photos, and all of the master pages. Clicking on anything from this screen will open up the .pdfs, from which anything can be printed for use in you home - as many times as you need. The teacher helps section includes a lot of good stuff, like a lesson planner, a resource list, binder covers (if you plan to make a binder), and timeline templates. Each lesson includes text pages (which detail the historical background and historical context), project pages (with notes on the projects that should be done with this lesson), and the actual project masters themselves. The projects are creative and varied, incorporating many different skills as they develop each historical era. Projects include creative writing, science experiments, recipes, timelines, factfile cards, penmanship, file folder games, notebooking, three-dimensional projects, period crafts, lap books, and more. The lessons on each CD-ROM should spread over 5-10 weeks, depending on the pace you set for your family. Windows and Mac compatible, requires Adobe Acrobat Reader (a free download). ~ Zach

Presidential profiles panning for gold projects and penmanship practice are all a part of the beautifully done CD of lessons and activities on the Early 19th century The planning that went into this great resource is incredible When you pop in the CD you are immediately impressed with its organization and detail After reading through the introductory material you are ready to begin printing off 25 lessons and instructions for over 35 activities There are activities for all types of learners including: a timeline to cement the events studied using the author's beautiful timeline figures a lapbook filled with small booklets hands-on projects such as Corn Husk dolls coonskin cap panning for gold and piecing a quilt A newspaper is created throughout the study as well as a Songbook and copybook of McGuffey Readers reading tips Also included are factfile cards which include facts on people places events and vocabulary for the 25 lessons These could be used as review a matching game or make up your own game But wait a file folder game on Westward Movement is included too! Topics covered are the first 12 Presidents states to enter the Union the Growth of the Nation Innovations the War of 1812 Mountain Men Natives Pioneers the Westward Movement the Mexican American War Lewis and Clark Slavery before the Civil War Gold Rush and much more A Chuck Wagon Dinner brings the unit to an end where children can showcase what they have learned and enjoy recipes and activities typical of the time Included in our study was a 5th grader 2nd grader and a Kindergartener most of the timeWe spent 1-2 weeks on each lesson by reading through the text 1-3 pages adding timeline figures and a little text to our ongoing timeline and finishing up with a lapbook minibook hands-on project or notebooking page provided The artwork is beautiful on all student project pages of this CD We colored them with colored pencils as the author suggested and they look fantastic although they would look great without any coloring too The teacher prep is so easy using the CD Lessons are clearly laid out along with all student masters With the click of your mouse you can access any lesson or project and print I simply printed as I went as there is a lot You can add in great literature or audio/visual ideas listed in the lessons or use what you have available There are some timeline figures for which no text or lesson covers so we simply typed the person event and year in our search engine and quickly filled in any information we did not know It would be impossible to cover everything included on the timeline without allowing for some personal research At the end of the study your students will have an awesome notebook filled with a timeline penmanship pages a songbook file folder game lapbook and pictures of activities crafts and chuck wagon dinner! Not to mention you will possess all of the great hands-on projects and fun memories of studying the 19th century togetherI would definitely recommend any of the Time Traveler CD's by Amy Pak They are well worth your money and more We enjoy lapbooking and have not found any as well done as the one made in this study Your children will be so proud of their accomplishments but it will require some disciplined work What a great way to study an era in our country's history With some great time-tested biographies non-fiction and fiction your study will be complete Students can even work on their lapbook timeline or craft as you read I plan to go back in time and dig into the other Time Travelers in this series when the next batch of adventurers in our home is ready; boys next time around!!
