Go beyond your books and bring history to life with the hands-on projects in Sonlight's new Hands-on History Kit: World Cultures.
Make memories with your children as you work on nine projects side-by-side, guiding them through the clearly outlined directions. Watch their confidence grow as they proudly show off their completed projects.
This hands-on history activities kit is excellent for Sonlighters, and amazing enrichment for other homeschoolers and afterschoolers! The projects included in this kit increase your children's understanding of history, offer evidence of learning … and they make teaching world cultures fun!
Hands-on History: World Cultures Supply Kit includes:
- Project supplies--except for a few household items such as scissors, stapler, markers, etc.
- Instruction booklet--full-color, 117-page guide includes directions-- with illustrations--for each step in the process. Even non-craftsy moms can enjoy these projects!
- A schedule so if you are using it alongside Sonlight's History / Bible / Literature A program or All-Subjects Package A, you will know what weeks to add the projects to your homeschool routine. But the kit can also be used as a standalone product for homeschoolers using a different curriculum or for afterschoolers looking to add enrichment to a traditional school situation.
Stop hunting Pinterest for ideas and making multiple trips to the craft store. This kit has nine unique projects that tie to your World Cultures studies.
