Pandia Press (Review)

As part of the Homeschool Crew, I received a free copy of History Odyssey Ancients, Level 1 from Pandia Press to review. Level 1 is written mainly for students in the 1st through 4th grade levels. History Odyssey brings to life the story of mankind through a comprehensive study of the literature, historical events, and geography of the time period.

History Odyssey, Ancients - level one

This particular time frame in history does not fit into our current history study, so we took a break from our normal curriculum and focused on the Ancient Egyptians section of this study. I didn't purchase all the associated products for this study, but here is a list of the books that we used:

Life in Ancient Egypt; by William Crouch
Into the Mummy's Tomb; by Nicholas Reeves
Look Find & Learn World History; by Linda Williams Aber
Color & Learn Ancient Egypt; by Edupress

We also used resources found at Homeschool Share as well.

History Odyssey Ancients does an excellent job of laying out the step by step instructions for completing a thorough study. Each lesson is broken down into four sections, prep, the "main lesson", additional activities and a book list. This product is meant to be used for an entire year, you do need additional resources to be able to complete the study properly. To see the required book and supply list, click here.

To read about more about our studies on ancient Egypt, see my post of Ancient Egypt Week 1 and Ancient Egypt Week 2. I do realize that two weeks in now way covers the vast amount of information presented, however that is the amount of time I was able to allot for this review.

If you are interested in purchasing e-books, you can do so by visiting the Pandia Press site ($28.95). If you would like to purchase printed copies, there are various vendors who carry these units, including Classical Home Education ($31.00) and Rainbow Resources.($24.95).
