Discover Africa!

I’ve tried notebooking with my right-brained children and it just never got off the ground. Mainly because I felt like it was guised as a right-brained idea, but it ends up still using a lot of left-brained methods of learning. My children particularly had no interest in looking up specified information in order to package it into a nice show-me work right-brained looking product. So, when I saw this notebooking packet, I wasn’t convinced until I saw that she had a “short version” of the packet, which means she did all the research and put it in already and all the child had to do was do some map work, put in a real picture, and add anything they wanted. Sounded like my cup of tea for my cup of children. And Africa has always been a high interest continent for my right-brained children! ~Cindy

The Animal Atlas: A Pictorial Atlas of World Wildlife
by Kenneth Lily

Each of my children loved this resource. In fact, it’s one of the few books that was so used that it fell apart. Large sized, colorful maps with pictures of real animals that inhabit the particular country. In the top left-hand corner is a world map view with the highlighted country depicted in red so you know in relation to the world where the country is located. ~Cindy


Yo, Sacramento!
by Will Cleveland & Mark Alvarez

My builder son loved this resource when he stumbled across it. A two-page spread shares facts about each state on the left-hand side, and on the right-hand side is a mnemonic picture and word play that helps you remember the state and capital. He thought it was such a hoot and literally carried it around him for weeks. At the end of this time, he knew all his states and capitals. ~Cindy
