  • My family has been using your TimeTravelers history curriculum for the past two years. (And will continue to use it.) I was at the Midwest Homeschool Convention in Cincinnati, OH this last weekend and met two of your children. After talking with them I shared that my kids were very inspired by the lessons. Every year my kids like to enter the PBS Kids Go Writing Contest (for K-3rd graders) This last year was my oldest son's last year to enter. He loved the New World Explorers so much that they became the topic of his story. The hardest part was cutting out some of the explorers to meet the maximum word count. His story won 1st place in Michigan. And he knows his explorers still today. I just wanted to add my four children always look forward to history. They love to show their past lap books off to friends and family. It has truly been blessing to have history lessons from a Christian perspective that are fun, interactive, and get the kids moving and thinking. The other two moms that I do Co-op with wanted me to say "Thank you" as well. You have blessed our families. Thanks again for giving us homeschool moms this tool teach with! - Colleen Eichelberger

  • Hi, We have been using the Time Travelers New World Explorers CD and we have had the BEST time over the past month! I can't believe we will be finished with this study in another week, it was all so fun that the time just flew by. I have four children ages 7-12 and I think they have loved just about every project. Knot making was a big winner, as was making lime juice, flags, constellations on felt and all the fun paper projects...I don't usually contact curriculum providers, ok I never have before and we've homeschooled for 7 years but I wanted to compliment you on this CD....Thanks for having such a great product! - Jodi Moore

  • Home School in the Woods Time Traveler history unit studies are, shall I say, AWESOME! Please bear in mind I am the opposite of crafty. Lapbooks are attractive to me in thought, especially when I see some of the lapbooks that others do. If I attempted to do one on my own, I would get as far as folding the folder....lol! Don't get me wrong, there is more to the unit studies than lapbooking, that is just what I enjoyed the most. ... - Hearts at Home Curriculum
