Project Passport Egypt, Middle Ages, Renaissance and Reformation (Home School in the Woods Review)

If you visit the About Us page of the Home School in the Woods website, you’ll find a reproduced image of founder Amy Pak’s fourth grade report card.  Her social studies teacher noted that  “Amy understands the personal side of historical figures, but has difficulty in connecting these men to the events of the time.”  Perhaps that’s why she relied on timelines when teaching history to her own children.  With her background in graphic design and illustrating, Pak soon found a market for her timeline figures.  As time passed, the product line expanded to include historical unit studies~~in addition to timelines, students read lesson texts, make craft projects, prepare historical dishes, and assemble lap books and notebooks summarizing the material learned.

For this review, the Crew members received downloadable versions of three titles in the newest line of world history studies—Project Passport (the series will eventually be expanded to include studies of Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome).  Following a traveling theme, the teacher’s guide is referred to as an itinerary while students collect postcards, a dining guide, make souvenirs (craft projects) and snapshot moments of history (the timeline component that started it all).
