Friendly Chemistry Essentials Set
Rigorous enough to prepare any teen for college, but friendly enough to keep the tears at bay, Friendly Chemistry covers all topics typically taught in a traditional high-school chemistry course, starting with the atom. In both of the two volumes, each lesson begins with teaching tips, detailed instructions, and explanations for each component of the lesson. The teaching tips are followed by the text portion of the lesson and then by worksheets, tests, hands-on activities, and games. This multi-sensory approach will help your teen remember what she has learned. Labs use household items and other resources that are generally easy to obtain, but it is the labs that present the only difficulty of using Friendly Chemistry Essentials Set independently, as we've designed this program. The problem? A couple of the labs require the use of a mystery concoction that the student is supposed to analyze. Our suggestion is to simply have your student turn the book over to you long enough for you to set the solution up, then hand it back so she can continue with her independent learning.
Exploring World History Curriculum Package
The fascinating, colorful Exploring World History high-school curriculum is a history course from a biblical Christian worldview.

In addition to a thorough survey of Western Civilization, Exploring World History offers significant coverage of Latin America, Africa, and Asia and features hundreds of color illustrations and photographs.
When one of our children was a preschooler, we received the best advice a parent of a kinesthetic child could receive: Let her wiggle. And wiggle she did. I don't think she sat for schoolwork for many years. Thinking Putty offers your child a way to move without becoming a distraction. An impressive, adult-sized handful of high-quality, moldable putty, the non-toxic, non-gooey Thinking Putty will bounce, stretch, tear, drip, snap, even shatter. Finally, your little wiggler will be able to sit and listen!

Visual Latin 2
Finally, Latin for every student, without boredom or overwhelmingly long lessons! Simply pop a Visual Latin DVD in the player, hit play, and start learning; nothing could be easier. Every Visual Latin lesson contains three parts: grammar, sentences, and reading -- with the reading segment covering reading, comprehension, and translation. In each of the three parts, you begin with a video that takes less than ten minutes to watch. Afterwards your child completes the corresponding PDF worksheet to reinforce what he just learned. So Visual Latin is not only visual, it is multi-sensory. You hear it, see it, speak it, write it, and ultimately think it. Because each lesson has a reading translation component, your child will be translating complete sentences, much of it Christian in nature, from the very first lesson!
The Reason For God
Equally provocative for skeptics and believers, no matter what belief system your family embraces, The Reason for God should be mandatory reading for your high-school student. Many questions are raised and answered such as: "Why does God allow suffering in the world?" "How could a loving God send people to Hell?" "How can one religion be 'right' and the others 'wrong'?" "Why have so many wars been fought in the name of God?" If your child cannot articulately answer these questions, he has some reading to do. These are the issues his peers are wrestling with, these are the questions he will encounter around the office water cooler or at a homeschool meeting. Your children need to be prepared. They need The Reason for God.
