Box of I.D.E.A.S. Pearl Harbor

Hey neighbors!

My husband really liked this one!  He actually taught this class.  We received the World War II Pearl Harbor study from Box of I.D.E.As.  The course comes in a box, with each lesson or module in a separate bag. Each module is a stand alone lesson.  I also liked that it started just giving some general background information on Pearl Harbor.  Most of the modules need no other supplies.  Just grab a pencil or pen and you are ready to go.  Should you need something else it is listed on the label.

Each module has fact cards.  These cards are part of the activity and can be used for other assignments, such as a writing assignment, research or even a quiz game.  You can use the activities as a springboard for discussions or research about a subject or fact.  There is also a test to use how you see fit when you are done with the course.

The children really enjoyed the second lesson where we covered whaling.  We watched a video and then each one had an assignment to research a different whale and gather as much information as possible.  They were to find out if their specific whale was considered an endangered species.

My sons love to read up on wars and different battles.  So of course they enjoyed this course.  Learning about the different facets of the war were good for each one of my children.

We used this as a group class for all the children.  We were able to work each lesson with the different grades and it was fun to do a study together.  Since my husband taught it was the entire family studying together.  We definitely enjoyed Pearl Harbor Box of I.D.E.As.

You might want to consider one of these as an addition to your curriculum.  Or maybe you are looking for a unit study.  The actual study is $79.  You can get the PDF for $49, but you do need to print off all of your lessons.
