Subject:         Tapestry of Grace --Years 1 ,2 ,3 -MAP AIDS Cds -LOTS of History books!
Date: July 27, 2013 at 4:38 pm PST

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
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.

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

assassinated. Despite his tragic and untimely death, many successes
filled the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., as kids will discover in

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. --$1.25
