My first review for the TOS Homeschool Crew is on The Old Schoolhouse June Module: Travel Around the World. This is an ebook unit study with a geography emphasis. Frugally priced at $7.95 and backed by The Old Schoolhouse reputation of quality this ebook would be a great addition to any homeschool.
This is my very first experience with any of TOS's modules and since it might be yours too I'll explain a little bit about what a module is. A module is an add-on for The Schoolhouse Planner, the amazing planner brought to you by The Old Schoolhouse®. This module includes a study guide, activity pages, and much more! These modules come chock full of awesome items such as hyperlinks, puzzles, quizzes, and more, and they all work to add fun to your investigation of our wide, wide world!
Now that we are done with the details I will tell you how this worked in our home. I received this review just as we were ending our school year. We had just finished up some big geography work so when I mentioned to the kiddos that we would be working on this Travel the World module their little eyeballs just glazed over. I guess they had had their fill of geography for a little while. So, a little disheartened and reluctant I plunged into this one on my own. So this review will be purely from McMama's standpoint and not the McNuggets! ;)
One thing that I, as the headMcMama of this schoolhouse, love and appreciate about using items such as these modules is that all the work is done for me. (Did I reeeealy just type that?!) Yeah, no need to spend countless midnight hours searching the net looking for all the right worksheets, websites etc. because it's already done for me! Yeah!!
This module starts out explaining the meaning of geography, the use of maps and globes, and continents as a whole then delves into each continent individually. There are extra fun worksheets included to use at your discretion such as coloring sheets, crossword puzzles, word searches, copywork pages, recipes and a whole section to beef this up for highschoolers!
I love that the hyperlinks are there to shoot you to a great website that adds another benefit to these modules! Talk about convenience!!
I would recommend this product to really any homeschooling family that is looking to add something to supplement what you are already doing in your home or as a nice "break" from your regularly scheduled days.
I feel bad that the children did not get interested in this as I think that they would have enjoyed it but I will be sure to pull this out when I want to add some geography work to our plans.
The Wrap Up
I encourage you to stop by The Old Schoolhouse Store and check out the June Travel the World Module and others. At $7.95 you'd be hard press to find fun and educational any cheaper! You can also save by bundling these and buying more than one at a time.
