Product Description:

Features 20 individuals who lived between 1200 and 1890. As a required resource for Paths of Exploration, this volume focuses on explorers and other groundbreakers.

Most of us know that Captain Cook explored Australia, New Zealand and the Hawaiian Islands. But did you know that it was his hard work studying math, navigation and astronomy that won him the recognition to be sent on those expeditions? These engaging books are full of little tidbits like that, with a focus on the character of famous individuals, not just their accomplishments. The lives of twenty famous individuals are examined in each book. Volume 1 emphasizes explorers, inventors, artists, musicians, and statesmen, while Volume 2 focuses on American heroes. Volume 3 features influential American leaders including George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Helen Keller. Each profile also features discussion questions, extension activities, word puzzles and timelines that put the individual's life in perspective to other events of the time. Although required resources for the Trail Guide to Learning curriculum, you could use this with many other history studies or independently. Written by Ashley Wiggers. 200+ pgs each, pb. Reproducible for family use. - Jess

Heard about this book from a friend and really like that it's only two to three pages for each person with a short activity. It seems to have a big punch with little time investment.

A decent starter but overall disappointing
I liked the selection of people who were covered in this book but overall I found the contents disappointing. I know the profiles are meant to be a 30,000-foot view type thing, but many details were offered without explanation as to their relevance or even given definition; some details were irrelevant and seemed to be there to meet a word count; basic biographical information was missing, such as the person's birth and death years and birthplace; and the "quiz" portion after each profile was just silly and would have been more effective in a simple Q & A rather than crosswords and hidden word puzzles. Also, I found numerous typos.
