Our spine reading resources are uniquely created to engage and fascinate your students. Build over 20 projects, enjoy relevant hands-on activities and cuddle around a good book this year in our new Early American History program!
American Story 2 –2nd – 8th Grade
This program has slightly more difficult activities and themes than American 1, and thus is more difficult to translate to young learners. Some of the activities are a little more abstract, less concrete than American 1.
Adventures in the Sea and Sky – 2nd to 9th Grade
Take a tour through history on the decks of ships, on the wings of flight and even in the depths of space! Study history from the perspective of transportation and the innovations that drove history forward. Students will love our full color “Make-Your-Own” Captains Log where they will engage with all of what they are learning. Books that bring their adventures to life fill this program. Our Sea & Sky program is a great foundational history program for elementary or even middle and high school grades.
Quest for the Ancient World 4/8 – 4th to 8th
Students focus on activities in six major civilizations: Early man, Egypt, Israel, Mesopotamia/Babylonia/Assyria, Greece, Rome. Good cohesion between subjects and concrete activities allow for easier inclusion of 2nd and 3rd graders, if necessary. A focus on adventure makes for a chance to drop into your history in a unique way!
Quest for the Ancient World Sr. High – 9th to 12th
Abstract activities relate well to the age group, but make it difficult to include younger students outside target age range. A focus on archaeological finds and skills provides a high-interest approach for older students.
Quest for the Middle Ages 4/8 – 4th to 8th
Students learn about the more difficult major movements of this time period, rather than civilization focus: Roman domination, barbarian influence, the feudal system, rise of the nation, trade at sea, advances in technology, Renaissance & Reformation. These more abstract themes and the variety of nations/cultures discussed make inclusion of younger students more difficult than Ancients.
Quest for the Middle Ages Sr. High – 9th to 12th
Same movements covered as in 4/8, but with a greater focus on their abstract effect on people and cultural development Focus on specific skill sets developed in art, architecture and technology. Abstract activities relate well to the age group, but make it difficult to include younger students outside the target age range.
Quest for the Royals and Revolution – 10th to 12th
Similar to Middle Ages Sr High. Major cultural movements will be studied that challenge the thinking of these older students and introduce belief systems that influenced the modern world.
One-Year American History & Government – 9th – 12th
This program is a one-year American history program for high schoolers. Drawing from our American Story 1 and 2 resources we add Hakim’s American History series along with our trademark hands-on learning and living books to make a great program for high schoolers. Added to the study is a government study using the resource Painless American Government.
