We are so lucky to be able to use another Home School in the Woods product. This year we have been able to use the newest project passport called HISTORY Through the Ages Project Passport World History Study: Ancient Greece. It’s a mouthful so I’ll just refer to Ancient Greece from now on. In case you aren’t familiar with these projects there is also Ancient Egypt, The Middle Ages and Renaissance & Reformation currently available. Ancient Rome is in the works and should be out in. 2018.
So what exactly is a Project Passport? It’s a whole lot of fun, information and learning packaged into a zip file or a disc for you to use. It’s basically a trip through time to which ever of the topics you chose from above. You will learn through 25 stops on your vacation through Ancient Greece.
Every stop is considered a lesson. Each lesson can take as long as you need. Older kids can get through a lesson in a day or two while younger kids might need up to two weeks. When you purchase the downloadable files you are sent a zip file. You are also given a link to the files on the internet. On the web page it’s very easy to see what needs to be printed out for each lesson.
The suggested age range for these projects packs is third to eighth grade. The reading and information for each lesson is great for all ages. For younger children you will want to work together as the information goes pretty in depth. You can see a sample of the text in the picture below.
Each stop has a variety of activities for your student to participate in. If you like lap books then you will be in Heaven! If your kids are older there are plenty of activities that don’t include cutting, pasting and coloring pictures. In the Ancient Greece pack there are ten different recipes to try. You can build a diorama, paint a Fresco or learn about the different constellations.
At the end of the passport pack there are additional suggested resources. This allows you to supplement or explore deeper avenues of study that are of interest to your kids.
My World History Thoughts
Home School in the Woods did not disappoint with their newest addition. I am continually amazed at the research and details that are put into all of their products. You cannot help but learn new information just by reading the text provided. The projects are filled with information and more facts to learn. I mentioned before that you can do as many of the projects as you want. We personally are not huge into lap booking. If I’m honest I’d say that I really don’t like it at all. That being said I have a daughter who loves cutting, pasting and coloring so I knew this would be right up her alley. I have used other Home School in the Woods products so had no illusions as to the amount of printing and work that goes into setting up the passport.
Before I reviewed my first product for this company I thought the price was a little high. $35 for a download? Trust me when I tell you that they could easily charge double and I’d still pay it. The versatility is amazing and to have all those resources in one place is truly worth the small investment you make.
