Like Volume 1, the All American History student activity book uses a multi-sensory approach to learning and is the perfect complement to the All American History student reader.

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.

Love it! November 3, 2008
Reviewer: Jackie A. from Lakeville, MN  
This program is so thorough-- detailed, accurate, and interesting.  I like the reader plus workbook format.  My daughter loves to read and the workbook is just enough hands-on reinforcement without containing too much busy-work.  The reader is challenging, yet not overwhelming.  I only need to help by assigning page numbers and off she goes.  Love it!

The text is so interesting... October 18, 2008
Reviewer: Kathy K. from Waverly, IA  
The All American History, Volumes 1 and 2, are the best history program I have used for middle school and high school.  The text is so interesting that I like to read it to my children, even though they are old enough to read it themselves.  The workbook reinforces the text in a fun way.  We also do a time line where we use the pictures and short articles the children write about the time period.  I would recommend this history curriculum to anyone.
