The 3rd Voyage of the TOS Homeschool Crew has set sail, and our first review item has boarded! We were given a free copy of The June 2010 Module Travel the World, for the Schoolhouse Planner for free for the purpose of review.
Now, I should tell you before we go any farther, I have always loved the Schoolhouse Planner and the modules! So, I was looking forward to reviewing this one!
So many times when you get one of these 'E-books', they really are geared for the younger set. While Travel the World, does have plenty of information and activities for that age group, (coloring pages, word finds, lapbook beginnings, etc..). What impressed me was that they have gone the extra mile to include a high school section. Now that I have 4 high school students, this is a very important aspect for me.
This is not simply an E-book that you can print out and use, which you can do, by the way. However, it is chock full of interactive links throughout the module. Links are included in both the younger section, as well as, the high school section.
The links consists of additional information, as well as games that your child can use to help cement the information into their brains.
Another blessing of this module, is the fact that it is from a Christian Worldview. God and His Word are throughout the unit. And not just as an afterthought. Each passage included is relevant to the point of study.
While clearly not a year long course, for $7.95 this is an awesome supplement that will help your child, no matter the age, either become familiar with the geography of the world, or for the older students, help concrete knowledge they may have already been exposed to.
I highly recommend Travel the World to any homeschooler!
