Here is a program I am going to continue using! It is called Time Maps by Knowledge Quest. I was really impressed with this product. I like that the maps are interactive, not just maps with information beside them.
As you view the maps, you can click on the icons in certain areas of the map that will give you more information. For instance you might learn a fact about the people living there or maybe something about that time period. If you click on the Q a drop down brings up questions about that specific map and time period. We personally used the Black Death and studied the spread of the Black Death and how it affected different areas and of course how it spread.
Also available are different maps, activity suggestions, and questions that you can print off for your child to work on. The questions will cause your child to consider the information they have seen and then come to a conclusion. Also filling in the timeline and maps will help reinforce what they have learned.
These Time Maps are available for:
The Rise of Rome
The Fall of Rome
The Rise of Islam
The Black Death
The Atlantic Slave Trade
We are looking forward to using other Time Maps throughout the next year. You can purchase them separately for $9.95 each, download all of them for $44.95 or if you prefer a CD it is $49.95. This is a wise investment from my point of view.
