Home School in the Woods: Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World Review!

Disclaimer: I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.

I am always looking for a way to make out homeschool more interesting and hands on. The crew was giving the opportunity to review several of the wonderful resources from Home School in the Woods for this review I choose to review Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World a digital pdf.

Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World is a wonderful resource that allows students to explore the worlds wonders right in their home. Students will focus on the worlds wonders from 4 time period Ancient, Medieval, Modern and Natural. What I like about the Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World is that students can use these wonders to cover history and science. Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World is meant to be put together as lapbook, but because I know my track record with lap books I decided to use the Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World as interactive notebook.

I separated the wonders according to their academic topic. So we have one notebook for science and one for history. We currently studying the ocean and geology so I pulled out the Great Barrier Reef and Grand Canyon for my son. I decided to put the Great Barrier Reef in the science notebook and Grand Canyon in the history. Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World added historical information in to the Grand Canyon such as about the Indigenous People. Can I just say I was very happy that Home School in the Woods used the correct term Indigenous People and showed them proper respect in history.

Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World includes activities timeline of the Wonders of the World as well as all the Ancient Wonders. I love the mix of combining all the time periods in the Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World . I decided against putting them all together rather than building our interactive notebook as we studied them so my son can use the extra pages in the notebook to add to the wonders we study. Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World provides all you need to put together a great lapbook, there is plenty of coloring, information, creative writing and templates for the kids explore the 23 projects. Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World is east to put together with the easy instructions provided. Students can put the Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World together on their own or with assistance from their parents.

Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World is a great resource for homeschoolers or non-homeschoolers, it provides a great supplement to history and science education. At the time of this review the cost for Lap-Pak: Wonders of the World is $18.95. Home School in the Woods offers several other fun filled Lap-Paks and resources be sure to check out the Crew reviews of these resources by clicking the banner below.

Home School in the Woods-Make A State Activity Pak Review!

Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.

History and geography still remain to be my favorite subjects to teach my son. I try to really bring these lesson alive with hands -on materials. We also like to be able to reflect back on things we have previously study and having keepsakes. With products like Make-A-State Activity-Pak (grades 3-8), Home School in the Woods makes it easy to add hands-on state geography to our studies.

The Make-A-State Activity-Pak comes complete with everything you need to make informative lap book for you and your student to enjoy. Students will explore the state they choose in depth. Each lap-book can include, geography, government, industrial facts, agricultural, landmarks, key facts, mottos and native tribe. The Make-A-State Activity-Pak also goes several steps further to let students design postcards from the state as well as try recipes that are state favorites. There are so many more inclusion in this lap book one could really have a great time just trying to figure out what you want to include, so pace yourself.

We decided to start our study with West Virginia we are studying about Katherine Johnson and she was born in West Virgina and I thought it would be a great addition to our studies and help us knock out geography at the same time. You know I am always thinking about all inclusion when I plan so the Make-A-State Activity-Pak fit right in. My son loved making the pepperonr rolls which are featured in the recipe card box for this state.

Make-A-State Activity-Pak also gives the freedom to add as much information or as little to the lapbook as the student and parent would like. The lap book really just lets the student dig really deep into the states history. Students will also be able to experience the states complete statehood. This is truly a comprehensive lap book and in my honest opinion United States curriculum. Parents can pull out all kinds of supplemental items to add to this and engage their students into some real research.

Make-A-State Activity-Pak is for grades 3-8 but I could really see using this with 1st and 2nd graders as well and let them build the lapbooks as they move along in grades. I am going to let my son continue to add on to his lapbooks as he progresses. This is a really fun way and interactive way to do geography without felling like you are limited to textbook information.

At the time of this review Make-A-State Activity-Pak is $18.95 and is available as a digital download. I feel like the cost is very reasonable if you are looking for a relaxed USA geography lapbook for all 50 states. You can go at your own pace and you can design your lapbooks the way you want them. We will be using the Make-A-State Activity-Pak for our 3rd grade school and I highly recommend you check it out.
