- One thing that my children and I love is how hands-on HSITW projects are! Working on projects that they put together and can go back to and look at and interact with help my children retain the information they’re learning, and they’re much more eager to go beyond the work at hand and do further research about what they are doing. This is a win-win situation! … We all thought the added crafty elements in the projects were a lot of fun! Adding glitter to a volcano, salt for snow, cotton balls for fog, using brad clips for moving parts, and having pop-up cards and moving Northern Lights meant that the projects felt more like crafts than like history! - Crystal at “Castle View Academy” blog

- The Lap-Pak is intended for grades 3-8, and my boys are 7 and 10 years old. I found the textual information to be attainable and interesting for both of them. I loved that the text always distinguished between facts and traditional stories that have been passed down, and gave different possibilities when historians are unclear on the history or purpose of something. I also appreciated that the text was substantial, without being too long. It was just enough information to satisfy introductory interest, but still presented all the information in a narrative way, not as a boring list of facts, and frequently the boys were encouraged to seek more information. - Brittney at “Mom’s Heart” blog

- My boys loved constructing the models for the Wonders of the World Lap-Pak! They would finish one and ask for the next one. There were diagrams, maps, and pictures to provide variety with the projects. No two projects are the same. … This study was so interesting! My boys enjoyed this study so much; we finished it in about a week. I was planning to spread it out, but it was too fun to wait! The completed lap-book is so fun to read! It is a lift-the-flap, pop-up, fill-in-the-blank, and timeline all in one. My boys love having something they created to save a read forever! - Christy, a contributor at “MyKidsWeek.com”
