The Story of the Thirteen Colonies & the Great Republic Set and 200 Questions About American History Set from Memoria Press is our latest history product to review. Once again, one of my children was thrilled to see this box arrive, the other, not so much. Funny how one is such a history lover and the other cringes at the thought of history.
The 200 Questions About American History includes a 25 page student book, and the teacher guide. The student guide contains the questions, and the reference chapter in The Story of the Thirteen Colonies & the Great Republic. A President's of the United States section (this is fill in the blank and does not cover term dates, but rather things like "president during the Compromised of 1850'). Also included in the student book is the Star Spangled Banner (all verses), Old Ironsides, and O Captain! My Captain! The teacher's guide includes everything listed in above as being in the student book, the answer key, 7 reproducible tests and answer keys to those tests as well. There is also a handy set of flashcards that can be purchased separately to help students memorize those 200 questions.
The recommended grade level for both sets of product is 5th-8th. However, you could turn this into a high school course simply by adding additional reading and project work.
