After I relented and purchased the Ancient Greece history pockets, I couldn't believe how easily the project fell into place, after weeks of neglect. You - and your kids - will be very pleased with the informative and interesting results.
I also purchased the Greek Myths literature pockets and am very pleased with those too.
Also, for what it's worth, my kids are in 1st & 2nd grade, more or less, not the 4-6 that is recommended for these pockets. So the pockets have appeal for a broad range of ages.
On the other hand, I did find it necessary to do a fair amount of prep work for them - photocopying the pages and cutting out some of the projects. If they were a couple of years older, the history pockets could have been done independently.
At the end of the history pocket book is an evaluation...the student performs a self evaluation ranking themselves on completeness of assignments, following instructions, creativity, neatness, etc. Their is a peer review and the teacher review. the three review add up to give you points that give you a grade. Its usaully about 140 points which you can figure into a "grade" for the unit.
The History pockets work best doing one pocket/unit per week. I would recommend reading a book about the history period to supplement the history pocket. For example...with this this pocket on ancient greece, being targeted for 4th-6th graders, reading Percy Jackson might be completely appropriate for 30- minutes say on Tuesday and Thursdays and M-W-F are spend working on the pocket.
I think this book pairs really well with Tools of the Ancient Greeks by Kris Bordessa, of which I have NOT done those activities (too involved and time consuming), but good info. Both books are broken down into family life, warfare, architecture, etc. TAG gives the right amount of info for an upper elementary-aged student, possibly even into middle school.
I hope this review helps!! I'm getting ready to buy Ancient Rome Pockets now...
