My kids are 10 (newly turned), 8 (extremely delayed from Africa), 7, and 5 (in a week, sob). How much do you use The Stuff They Left Behind? I would need to buy the hard copy but I’m not sure if it’s truly a wise purchase with my ages. What have been your experiences?missceegeeParticipant
I have kids 4- almost 13 and we use as written into Visits to Africa. They add a lot IMO.
Thank you! Just what I was hoping to hear.RobinPParticipant
My younger boys are 9 and 10. They LOVED The Stuff They Left Behind for our Greece studies! They still refer to it. We simply looked at them and I read the blurb in the folder. Nothing fancy. I plan to use the set for Rome when we get to it.Mysterious Lady in PinkParticipant
I think your kids are a great age for it! I hang up the picture on the refrigerator (in a page protector) and stick a post-it on it with the name, maybe other minor detail. My just-turned 5yo knows the pictures pretty much as well as the 7&9yo do.
The only thing I wish were different, is that I would have liked there to be some more info included as part of the set. I feel like that is lacking, compared to having, say, the artist bio included in the art portfolios. We always end up googling it to get more info, just even general facts.
But the thing that I love most about the Stuff They Left Behind is that, with it, this aspect actually GETS DONE! My kids are seeing these pictures, making their own connections with this aspect of history. Yay!!
Thank you so much ladies. I ordered it with the rest for our new Mod in January. 🙂
