TAPESTRY OF GRACE
-
Tapestry of Grace is a unit study curriculum that covers most of the
major subject areas for all your students in grades K through 12. It
covers the same general topics for all students simultaneously, but
instruction and activities are divided into four levels of learning.
-
The divisions are:
*Lower Grammar (Grades K-3)
*Upper Grammar (Grades 3-6)
*Dialectic (Grades 6-9)
*Rhetoric (Grades 9-12)
-
There is a purposeful overlap here to address the reality that students
at the same ages rarely progress at the same rate.
This curriculum lasts for the full 12 years of your students' learning
of history. Once they have gone through the first 4 years, they go back
through again, but this time at the next level. Once they are through at
that level, they go through again at the next level and so on. You will
cycle through 4 times if you begin TOG in kindergarten. You can start
TOG at any grade though.
Subject areas covered include history, writing, literature, fine arts,
geography, church history, including missions, and Bible. TOG uses non-
fiction as well as fiction books. It includes multi-sensory learning
options to address different learning styles and interests, ranging from
reading, writing, comprehension/discussions questions, and simple art
projects, to full costumed reenactments. Detailed lesson plans and
discussion outlines enable parents to teach with confidence.
Year 1: The History of Redemption covers Creation through the fall of
Rome.

GREENLEAF GUIDE TO ANCIENT EGYPT (Cyndy Shearer)
-- Ever wonder how biblical history and ancient Egyptian history fit
together? Why was God so angry with Pharaoh, anyway? These were
questions we asked when we began our study of Ancient Egypt. We wanted
to start our study of Western history by beginning at the beginning.
After reading through the Old Testament (which is history, after all) we
study ancient Egypt. The Greenleaf Guide to Ancient Egypt presents ten
lesson plans, using the six books listed below. Included are vocabulary
lists and discussion questions drawn from the reading. Also included are
directions for playing a checkers like game found in Tut s tomb,
directions for building a model shaduf (irrigate like the Egyptians!),
as well as suggestions for how to adapt your study to fit grades 2-7.
Home school tested. Average duration is about 15 weeks. An absolutely
enthralling introduction to this time period. --$8.75

the Time of the Pharaohs (Julie Farris)

to the pyramids at Giza, and hire a palanquin to complete the tour in
style. This historical travel guide is packed with fascinating facts and
colorful illustrations offering kids a unique and enjoyable way to look
at Ancient Egypt, its people, places and customs. Looking under headings
such as "Accommodation" reveals that a comfortable night's sleep in
Thebes may be hard to find since beds were made with ropes or leather
straps. "Top attractions" include the recently constructed temples at
Karnak and Luxor, and "Getting around" includes tips on the safest ways
to travel. Kids will be amused to discover why fashionable folk pin
cones of perfumed fat to their heads, how "sniffer baboons" patrol the
markets for thieves, and how to avoid being roped into service in the
harvest season. A fold-out map at the end of the book helps kids locate
all the sites mentioned, and a "tourist quiz" lets young Egyptologists
test themselves on the essential information they need to know before
they go! --$4.00

PYRAMIDS (Kid's Discover)
--It’s been 5,000 years since the Pyramids of Egypt were built, and
human civilization has yet to top them in terms of sheer grandeur and
size. These 80 massive structures, all built by hand – with some
requiring 100,000 workers to labor over 20 seasons to build – dwarf the
monuments of modern times in terms of every statistic you care to
compare. Pyramids, for kids, explores the history, construction, and
excavation of these royal tombs, starting with a fascinating look at the
evolution of their design, from rock piles and flat-topped brick tombs
to the perfectly proportioned pyramids we know and love today.
-
In this issue, kids will learn why the pyramids were built close to the
Nile and how the construction process unfolded, using rafts, ramps,
crude tools, and above all else, sheer manpower. They’ll also read about
the incredible effort and time it took to erect them; for example, to
complete the Great Pyramid at Giza, which required 2.5 million stones,
experts estimate that one 2.5-ton stone block – roughly the weight of
two cars – had to be quarried and polished every two minutes for 23
years. The many traps, mazes, and secret chambers built into the
pyramids to ward off grave robbers are also examined, along with the
golden sarcophagi and gem-encrusted treasures found in the funeral
chambers of many pyramids. For kids who like mummies, a section on the
Egyptians’ highly skilled embalming process is sure to be a gripping
read too. --$1.75 (2)

-
-
AGE OF EXPLORATION John R Hale (Time-Life Books)
--This classic is informative and interesting. Full of interesting old
maps, illustrations, and diaries, the book takes the reader along on the
perilous voyages of the 15th-17th century explorers whose expeditions
changed the world forever. Beginning with a description of the medieval
view of a small world populated by mythical monsters, AGE OF EXPLORATION
shows how the quest for gold, spices, and converts inadvertently created
new views of reality and shifts in political power. While capturing the
wonder of Europe's Renaissance "discoveries," the book does not
romanticize these voyages, plagued as they were by starvation, scurvy,
mutiny, and inhumanity toward the new lands' native inhabitants. Even as
the world map grew larger and more accurate, myths stubbornly persisted,
whether in the form of Columbus's continued belief that he'd reached the
Indies or Vasco de Gama's insistence that the Hindus he met in India
were Christians. Ironically, if not for these myths--and the exaggerated
tales the explorers told upon return--interest in sponsoring more
voyages would probably have waned. Hard cover. --$4.00

-

approaches the facts with playful irreverence; accordingly, the
frequently traveled material can seem refreshingly new. No one is
better than Jean Fritz at making history interesting as well as
comprehensible. --$4.00

THE FIRST BOOK OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION Richard Morris
-- This is the best short account of the American Revolution we have
ever read. Dr. Morris not only knows the period inch by inch, but has it
set in an intelligent historical perspective. Both these things he
conveys to young readers with the immediacy to capture their interest
and the detachment that will help them to judge the Revolution properly.
The book begins with the July, 1776, enactment of an official
Declaration of Independence, a year after the fighting had already
begun. It then discusses the causes and the nature of the American
uprising as the first of many to come in the world and yet distinct from
those that followed in Europe in that it actually established a
government by the people. The ensuing analyses- of the course the
fighting took in the next six years and of the various conflicting
motives behind it such as the farmers' wish for protection of the Crown
or the bad timing of the British in asserting their power- is fresh and
vigorous, simple yet well rounded. A book like this will do much to
disperse old cobwebs of glory and honor and prod young people into
knowing democracy's hurdles as well as achievements. Hardcover. $4.00

soldiers, his actions on that night have made him an American legend.
Yet Paul accomplished much more than that. Did you know that Paul Revere
was at the Boston Tea Party? belonged to the Sons of Liberty? was an
expert silversmith? had sixteen children? opened a gun powder factory?
designed and made money? Hear Paul's story as if you were really there.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR (Kid's Discover)
--Martin Luther King, Jr. preached love and believed nonviolent protest
was the only way to freedom and equality for black Americans, and in
return for his vision of peace. he was arrested, stabbed, and finally
assassinated. Despite his tragic and untimely death, many successes
filled the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., as kids will discover in
this issue. For one thing, his tireless efforts to improve the lives of
millions of Americans garnered him the Nobel Peace Prize at the young
age of 35.

Martin Luther King Jr., for kids, examines how the legacy of slavery,
Jim Crow laws, the KKK, segregation, and ongoing discrimination created
a culture of violence and oppression around black communities. Then
King, a passionate young pastor, suddenly emerged as the leader of the
Alabama bus boycott in 1955 and quickly became the voice and the hope of
the growing civil rights movement. As head of the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference, he inspired the sit-ins, freedom rides, and
marches that ultimately led to the passing of the Civil Rights Bill in
1964. However, his message proved too radical for many people, and
bloodshed nearly always followed in his wake – ultimately claiming his
life in 1967. Despite this, violence did not destroy the dream of Martin
Luther King Jr.; for kids curious to learn more about his legacy, this
issue also describes his contributions to many other campaigns to
improve the lives of black Americans that continue today. --$1.75
