What is in the Hideaways in History Living Texts Vol. 1 - 4?
Students will love “Let’s Hideaway in History,” the main history book for Hideaways. It presents the material in a fun, light way, through the eyes of Hideaways critters Indiana Sticksenstones, Chirp, and Sticky. These three little insects travel through time and get into some fun situations in world history, making it easy to learn right along with them!
It’s important for parents to know that students will be studying topics that are largely presented from a positive view, for the most part. Topics are chosen to discuss that reveal the times without delving into the darker topics of those times whenever possible. This enables your young student to learn a lot about world history but save more mature aspects for later.
These living texts are filled with history! This is part of what makes this program great for older and younger students! Students who are closer to 4th grade will soak in the information and easily make it through these texts while performing the activities found in the journal and activity books. While younger students may not soak in as many details as older students, the younger students will still understand the general timeline found in each of these living texts!
