Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
Our family is a huge fan of any products released by Homeschool In Rhe Woods. We recently had the opportunity to review the U.S. Elections Lap-Pak. This has been a great way to help break down the Presidential electoral process in the United States.
The U.S. Elections Lap-Pak provides students with 21 different projects/lessons that include:
The U.S. Elections Lap-Pak can purchased on CD-rom or as a PDF download. I received the PDF download for our review. The process is super easy to use. I was able to download and choose what items I wanted to print. I will admit that my girls are not huge fans of lapbooking. But the strange thing they will complete activities and just put them in a notebook. So that is the option I chose.
You can print the "Lessons" or reading material in booklet format or as full page lessons.
I chose the simple route, and did full page lessons and printed some activities. Below you will see a picture of what the lapbook could look like when you print and attach all activities.
Do not feel overwhelmed though. This picture may look difficult, it is not. Homeschool in The Woods does provide easy to read instructions for all aspects of this project. Once you complete your first project, you will see why I am hooked on their history materials. Caty has been traveling through the 1800s using their various history packs, and really enjoys the short but informative lessons. They are perfect for her attention span.
The U.S. Elections Lap-Pak has provided the girls with a very easy to understand explanation as to what an election is, how it proceeds, and the important aspects to our society.
For parents, all the work is ready for you to print and go. There are extra drawings and photos you can print to jazz up your books even. Simple materials such as a printer, colored paper, scissors, glue sticks, and file folders are all the supplies that are needed for this project. You cannot get much easier than this.
You can easily finish a lesson a day in this material and finish this study in roughly a month, depending on how much you tackle each day. And just in time for all the questions your child may have with the important upcoming elections in our country.
I really cannot say enough how much we LOVE and how much I recommend using Homeschool In The Woods materials in your home. They have been a blessing to me as I am a working parent who wants to make sure that her kids love history as much as I do. The simple design that packs a punch in each lesson is perfect for this.
