  9. Wonders of Our World - Shine-a-Light

    Wonders of Our World - Shine-a-Light

    SKU: 3930

    $12.99

    Journey across our world to explore natural and man-made marvels. Peer inside ancient buildings, climb mighty mountains, dive under the surface of the sea, and much more when you shine a light behind the page and see...

    Review by Publishers Weekly: Shining a light against the pages of this interactive outing (part of the Shine-A-Light series) unveils hidden visual details. Spreads are devoted to 14 natural and constructed world wonders (the Great Barrier Reef, the Great Wall of China, the Himalayas, the Taj Mahal, and others). Murphy’s gentle, bright color illustrations depict ancient structures and organic marvels. Brown writes in a q&a format, hinting at the wonders to be revealed: “This boat tour in the Philippines is heading toward a cave. Why are people wearing hard hats?” Shining a light allows the stalactites to appear before the answer is revealed on the next page. While the light effect is subtle, it invites further discovery of the monolithic constructions and remarkable vistas. Brown also reminds readers to look within their own communities: “The world is full of small wonders too—remember to watch out for them

  10. Imhotep Builder of Egypt  Board Game

    Imhotep Builder of Egypt Board Game

    SKU: 13244

    $39.95

    Imhotep The legendary architect of the Egyptian monuments. His awe-inspiring structures and brutal tactics earned him divine status among ancient Egyptians. Can you match his ruthless determination to build the most revered monuments?

    To do this, you will need to transport stone blocks on ships from your quarry to different construction sites. But you alone do not choose where the ships go. Your opponents have monumental plans of their own and want to prevent your success. A fierce competition for the precious stone resources plays out. Only with the right strategy and a little luck can you succeed.

    In Imhotep, the players take on the roles of ancient Egyptian architects. Over six rounds, they try to transport their stone blocks to end up in the most valuable positions at five construction sites: pyramid, obelisk, chamber tomb, temple, and market. But a player can only choose one of three actions in a turn: excavate a new stone block from the quarry, load a block onto a ship, or move a ship to a construction site. From there, the massive stone blocks must be unloaded in order from bow to stern and placed on the sites in preset sequences. Depending on where the blocks end up, players earn different point values either immediately or at the end of the game. In each turn, you must weigh your options for getting your own stones into place and thwarting your opponents’ placement plans. You must get your blocks to the right places, in the right order, at the right time to be the greatest architect.

    $16.99

    This 192-page book increases vocabulary, stimulates imagination, and boosts standards-based language arts skills. Each of the lessons teaches PSAT and/or SAT vocabulary words, which are made up of dynamic, real-life words students may encounter while reading or use in their writing. Each lesson contains definitions, pronunciation keys, parts of speech, and alternate choices for each word made up of synonyms, idioms, and/or phrases. There are several activities, including a story involving students in a classroom setting. Students complete a variety of exercises requiring critical reading and writing skills to contextualize the words. The exercises deliberately use other forms of the words as different parts of speech, so that students learn to recognize these forms as variations of the original words— further expanding their vocabulary and enabling them to use the words in more contexts. The correct spelling of vocabulary words are emphasized with the jumble activity that asks students to unscramble the word before writing the correct spelling. Whether used in the traditional classroom, as a homeschooling resource, or for independent study, Vocabulary Virtuoso is a highly effective and fun vocabulary resource! PSAT-SAT Book 2 — 180 Vocabulary Words and These Concepts: ancient Greek history, ancient Greek drama, Commedia dell’ Arte, mythological allusions in Shakespeare, Shakespeare’s London, Renaissance artists, epistolary writing, historical fiction, U.S. musical history, types of literary conflict. 192 pages.

New currencies are created, new weapons invented, and world-changing catastrophes alter the landscape: the Little Ice Age and the Great Famine kill millions, the Black Death millions more. In the chaos of these events, our own world begins to take shape. Follow the story back; check out the History of the Medieval World and the History of the Ancient World! Hardbound. 816 pages.

    Wonders of Old: A Blank Timeline Book of World History

    SKU: 4368

    $24.95

    Wonders of Old spans from 5000BC – the Present and beyond History comes alive when your student records significant historical events in his own hand. He will make connections between historical events by recording entries across academic subjects… * kingdoms * empires * rulers * scientists * literature * great writers * musicians * and so much more! It is a proven fact that completing timelines help cement historical facts for students and adults alike. A timeline can become the compilation of a student’s learning. Seeing the progression of time in the form of a timeline will allow your student to gain a better understanding of the flow of history. The truth is… many students may study the fall of Constantinople to the Ottoman Turks, the end of Hundred Years’ War between France and Britain, and the printing of the first book, the Gutenberg Bible, never realizing that these three events all happened within the same year – 1453AD. These events are seemingly unrelated and yet the use of a timeline can unlock the mystery as to why all of these events occurred within the same year. A timeline will give your student a unique perspective of time. By seeing the events of history recorded in linear progression, your students will make connections between those events in history that they might not otherwise make. Wonders of Old is divided into four historical time periods: ancient, medieval, new world and modern. Significant dates are listed at the conclusion of each section as a helpful reference. This hardcover book measures 9×12 and is printed on extra thick 70# paper for durability. Bonus CD-ROM included! The CD-ROM contains the entire Wonders of Old book in digital format so that you can print out multiple copies for additional children or extra pages to insert into your book should you run out of room on a page (doesn’t happen too often!). The CD-ROM also includes timeline category stickers that can be printed on full size sticker sheets to place within the pages of the book. Hardcover. Grades 5-12. 104 pages.
