Exploration Through 1840
Designed to be engaging and written in a comfortable style, All American History Student Reader reads like a good book--bringing America's story to life piece by piece. It contains hundreds of images and dozens of maps. A thorough, multi-sensory introduction to American history, covering Exploration through 1840, All American History is designed for grades five to eight but can be adapted for younger and older students.

About the All American History Curriculum:

Timberdoodle's Favorite American History Program
Never in twenty years have we offered an American history curriculum so complete, so captivating, and so well-conceived. Similar in many ways to the highly popular Mystery of History series, All American History is far more engaging than any dreary textbook.

For Multiple Grade Levels
Extravagant with hundreds of first-rate black-and-white illustrations in Volume I and gripping black-and-white photos in Volume II, this is a thorough introduction to American history for children in grades five to eight. However, the teacher's guide makes it easy to adapt this series for both younger and older children, a huge blessing for families that are teaching more than one grade level.

Thirty-two Engaging Lessons All American History Volumes I and II make U.S. history come alive for children as they investigate the cultural, political, religious, and economic events that formed and impacted this country. Much more thorough than typical curricula, All American History covers thirty-two weeks studying not only the events themselves, but also the environment in which each event occurred and the impact this event has had on America.

Written for Homeschoolers
Why All American History and not a history book from a mainstream publisher? First and foremost, because the author, Celeste Rakes, has homeschooled since 1987, and in addition has shared her love of history with many students in homeschool classes. Admittedly, this fact alone is not always a positive feature; we have rejected countless programs from homeschooling parents because they were embarrassingly inferior to what was already available on the market. Not so here; All American History is a quality product through and through. And it has thankfully steered clear of the government school flavor many of the conventional history books adopt that makes simple ideas seem complex. Also, writing as a homeschool mom for homeschool parents and homeschool co-ops, Celeste has avoided the assumption that teaching history is all we do, and so her teacher's guide is succinct with just enough explanation to propel you along but not so much as to overwhelm you.

Two Volumes, Covering Exploration to the 21st Century
The first volume covers Exploration through 1840. Volume II covers the Civil War to the 21st Century. Each week includes a chapter from the reader, maps, forms, review questions in the activity book, and plenty of hands-on and research ideas in the teacher's guide. The teacher's guide also includes answers, as well as valuable teaching tips, ideas for including younger students, games, activities, and more. The activity book is more of a workbook with reviews, unit wrap-ups, plenty of useful maps, and more. The student reader is hardcover; the teacher's guide is softcover; the activity book is softcover, perfectbound, three-hole punched, and perforated.
