Home School in the Woods Á La Carte Products Review
It came with everything you need to play the game except the dice. We also had the fun of coloring it and making it our own. I love when we can add our own personalities to our lessons, this is one of the largest reason I chose to home school. A few of the smaller fonts were a bit hard to read at times but not so much we couldn’t. Both of my older children love History and learning about how people used to live. This was the perfect game for us to spend time together while learning about a topic they were very much interested in.
My youngest was more interested in the Pirate Panoply. This is a game where you get to dress your own pirate. What is there not to love. While they got to color and choose the colors for their pirate’s clothes they also learned about what the pirate wore and why the item was a necessary part of the pirate’s wardrobe.
After their pirate was fully colored came the fun of the game. The game is to try to dress your pirate first. Each clothing piece has a number and you roll a dice to find out what clothing you can place. It’s fun and my whole wide age range of children both enjoyed it and could play independently. Although, my youngest just wanted to pretend he was a pirate paper doll.
There is More!
Home School in the Woods has several other products that I can’t wait to checkout in the future. As a History loving home school family, it is a wonderful find. I love hands on activities because I think they help the children retain more information than just reading a story or watching a documentary. I try to use a mixture of the three when I plan and this site has really given my an arsenal of history fun to look forward to using.
One of those things that I plan on checking out are the timelines. They have several different time lines that the children could build themselves.
