Learn about early Christian history and make a “History of the Bible” scroll craft. Put a Pacific Islands beach, complete with footprints, up on your wall and showcase everything you learn in this geography unit.

Finally, learn about musical instruments and make some of your own.
In each unit you’ll find a recommended library list, important background information about each topic, lots of activities to choose from for kids of all ages, and sidebars with a bunch more ideas including Additional Layers, Fabulous Facts, On The Web, Writer’s Workshop, Famous Folks, and Teaching Tips.
