Revolutionary Ideas - The Story of the American Revolution


Homeschool Legacy Review

Hi Neighbors!

Our family recently received the Homeschool Legacy course, Revolutionary Ideas: The Story of the American Revolution for review.  This is a once-a-week study course on the American Revolution that lasts 8 weeks.  I received a digital download  e-book version.  Normally I am not a big fan of e-books for class unless it is just the book for reading, but this worked just fine.


Homeschool Legacy Review

To begin with, each week gives you a list of supplies needed for that week.  Here is an example from week one:

3-ring binder with a plastic sleeved cover Blank paper or construction paper
Loose leaf paper
A globe or world atlas

The game, RISK
Now, had my boys been taking the course they would have LOVED playing Risk.  My daughters on the other hand, did not want to play Risk.  The beauty of a course like this though is that you don't have to do everything.  We make adjustments as we go along.  There is a list of books to choose from, that vary in reading levels, and this was right up my daughter's alley.  She LOVES reading historical books.  I think my 14 year old knows more history than I ever learned in school.  Or maybe I have just forgotten a lot.

Another thing that I liked was that they break it down into sections that are easy to choose from.  I liked the Family Devotions.  It is nice to be able to do devotions that fit right in with what your children are learning.   Then of course there were History and Geography activities along with Research, Language, and Critical Thinking.  We were able to pick and choose what we wanted to do each week.  Along with the book choices, there were also videos to choose from.  This is nice if your child is more of a visual learner, and it also allows a wider variety throughout each week.

Another little amusing feature is the stump your dad question included at the end of each lesson.  This was not so exciting to my teenage daughters, but had they been a little younger I have a feeling it would have been a big hit to try and stump their father.

I appreciated that they gave a warning ahead of time on a book that was chosen for the family read aloud time.  One of the book options was "MyBrother Sam Is Dead.  They mention ahead of time that you might want to skip the graphic war scenes and mild language.  This allows you to go ahead and be prepared to skip these portions, or to skip the book entirely.

"Revolutionary Ideas - The Story of the American Revolution was easy to add to our schedule.  Everything is laid out in an easy to understand manner, which I really appreciated.  Sometimes you are left guessing with curriculum, but that was not the case with this course from Homeschool Legacy.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
