About Project Passport: The Middle Ages
Bring history to life! The all-new Middle Ages activity-based history study – the first in a new “Project Passport” curriculum – invites children to take a trip through time to get a true understanding of everyday life, historic events, and significant people who shaped our world.
Equipped with a passport and luggage folder -- which will take you through additional Project Passport studies such as the Renaissance and Reformation Pak. Your child will be ready to ride with Robin Hood, roam a medieval village, and explore historic castles.
The CD contains 25 "stops" – each one includes background text, and a selection of hands-on projects that allow children to get a deeper understanding of economic, social, lifestyle, political, and religious issues of the times. Children complete creative writing activities, create a period newspaper, build Lap Books, craft 3-D projects, and much more. Take the learning deeper with a series of audio tours that carry your children away to the age of knights and battles, Gregorian chants and village festivals.
My thoughts on Project Passport: The Middle AgesWhen I decided to review this product, I originally wanted it for my 6th and 7th grade students, but even my 1st grader and kindergartner are enjoying many of the activities. When I am choosing items to purchase for our homeschool activities, I particularly like those that are cross-curricular. The beauty of this CD is that it covers social studies and history, as well as writing, art, and even home economics. I also like that the CD works on both PC and Mac computers, since we are considering transitioning to a Mac in the future. My kids are retaining the information they are learning as well, which is always a plus.
On a side note, Project Passport: The Middle Ages, is brought to you by Homeschool in the Woods. Although I have been a fan of Homeschool in the Woods for several years, when my CD arrived, I was excited to see that they are a local (to me) company. Although it has no bearing on my opinion of the product, it is nice to know that it is a local business.
