History pockets teachs just the facts. This product is especially good for children with special needs who have comprehension difficulties and cannot handle the traditional textbook. It is also great for the student who gets bored with the traditional history textbook. The hands on approach keeps the child's attention and creates a lasting impact that helps the child remember the significant events in history. Toss the textbook with it's fluff and puff. It's a BIG time waster. Get this product. You will keep your child's attention and they will remember what you have taught them!

My fifth grader loves colonial American and Revolutionary war history. with all the reading she has been doing on the subject, I found this a nice way to provide some projects for a learning portfolio. For someone homeschooling with a curriculum such as Sonlight that focuses a lot on books, this can add some crafts and color to the program. Don't expect that this book will be all you need to cover the time period, it doesn't replace a curriculum or good library books, but it is a great complement for a history program.

This product has been a great edition to our My Father's World History Program. We are also so using the Life in Plymouth Colony Grades 1-3 History Pockets. We also added the North American Explorers History Pockets as well and have really enjoyed it. I would recommend these products to anyone who enjoys hands on visual projects for their kids to work on.

We love history pockets and have been using them in our homeschool for five years. We discovered early on that my daughter grew bored with the actual pocket making, but enjoyed the activities. So we dispensed with the busy work and went straight for the fun, educational part. We display the finished projects around the house and then put them in a grade level portfolio or scrapbook at the end of the year. Pocket labels and headers are often made into bookmarks etc. This technique gives us more flexibility in the middle grades when there just isn't the time for busy work. Some projects, such as the sampler, may be too easy for many homeschoolers. We found historic patterns in a cross stitch book and my daughter really enjoyed actually stitching one rather than just coloring one. The Fast Facts sections are helpful review tools (also good bookmarks). If I was teaching a standard classroom, I would find the whole lapbook project too time consuming for any grade above three. However, I do believe that the individual projects make great hands-on supplements to history lessons or complements to historical biographies.
We've purchased Ancient Rome, Ancient Greece, Native Americans, Life in Plymouth Colony, the Lit Pocket `Greek
and Roman Myths', as well as the above title.

One of my children absolutely *LOVES* the "History Pockets" series. Another can't stand them and considers them "busywork". The information is solid and the student who enjoys the activities will likely learn a lot from doing them. Highly recommended IF your child doesn't mind all the cutting, pasting, and coloring required.

the activities contain good info and provide all needed info to the teacher for prep and presentation. My one reservation is that the activities are almost exclusively cut, paste and color. However, the information provided is interesting and helps kids get a grasp of the reality of history not just the names and dates. I don't really think this reaches up to the 6th grade level though. 4th and 5th graders should love it!

I am a homeschool parent and bought this for my son. He has a variety of learning disabilities with comprehension at the top of the list. This workbook of activities guides the teacher through hands-on activities that support reading material. It really helps enhance and encourage the comprehension aspect for us. The projects come out in a lapbook-style finished product and it is great to see the sense of accomplishment on my son's face! I also like the opportunity for some creative input on some of the activities. The Fast Facts that are included make recall easier as well. I ordered more for future history lessons!

I teach 2nd and 3rd grade and the History Pockets are a great resource - especially for Core Knowledge schools. I find the content most appropriate for high functioning 3rd graders. I can't imagine a 6th grader doing some of the activities. Some seem too primary for that old of a kiddo.Crafty and hands on, much better than worksheets.
