All about Africa, you’re going to love coloring the maps, learning about the Christian King of Axum, making a Senufo cloth painting, going on Safari in your back yard, making an Anansi spider craft, and reading stories from several African cultures.  Plus you’ll learn all about atomic bonding by drawing Lewis Dot diagrams and you’ll make crystals out of borax, salt and/or sugar plus more.  This is a PDF.

If you’re chemistry shy you’re going to love the Layers of Learning chemistry EXPLANATIONS, EXPERIMENTS, and EXPLORATIONS written by Michelle, who gets chemistry thoroughly enough to explain it simply.  Simplified for your six-year-old, but in depth enough for your high schooler.  Seriously, fear no more.

In each unit you’ll find a recommended library list, important background information about each topic, lots of activities to choose from for kids of all ages, and sidebars with a bunch more ideas including Additional Layers, Fabulous Facts, On The Web, Writer’s Workshop, Famous Folks, and Teaching Tips.  Printable maps and worksheets are included at the end of each unit and may be printed as often as needed for your family or class.

    I’m a bit confused about why this is talking about Chemistry? Does this unit include some science connections? I have a science loving kid so that would be great (did another Unit on the science of Ancient Egypt and he loved that).

    If you could e-mail me an answer, I’d appreciate it. Thanks a bunch.

    • Every unit includes four complete subjects: history, geography, science and the arts.

      This unit includes a section on chemical bonding, a chemistry topic. Since chemistry is often an intimidating subject for homeschoolers we mention it in particular in this unit description.

    Is “Explanations, Experiments, and Explorations” part of this book?
