Great Resource
Review by JW
Such a great option not just for homeschoolers, but for anyone wanting to learn more about Israel.
This is set up to make it easy with activities, materials list, schedule. 5 Stars!
A fascinating geography/history book on the Holy Land
Review by Kathleen
What an amazing resource this book is. Students will learn the differences between Christianity, Islam and Judaism. They will learn how man has taken God’s truth and altered it in the religions of Islam and Judaism to reject the truth of Jesus in the New Testament as Savior.
This is so much more than a geography book. It ties in so much history to really help you understand why the Holy Land is the way that it is today.
The pictures are wonderful. They are vibrant and plentiful. I loved seeing all the people and places, it made me feel like I was there.
Geography terms are explained and pictured throughout.
There is a schedule for using this course 3 days a week for 36 weeks.
Each chapter includes: maps, photos, a variety of activities, recipes, travel log and a chapter review.
While this book is suggested for a student in the 5th grade, I learned a lot as well. I highly recommend this book.
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
