I loved what Christie did and when we kept going past what she’d done, I just started doing google images and searching on google for videos of the different places. We found something on everything in Occident and enjoyed it a lot. I did scan through them quickly to make sure nothing was objectionable. I didn’t keep all the links we’d done, though. I probably should have, but I’ve had one of those years where details escape me a lot. LOL I wonder if there were enough of us doing it at one time we could crowd source it?amyjaneParticipant
What history module are you using this with and what ages are your kids?
Great idea, Michele! I wonder about the best way to do it together. Maybe just Chapter #s and headings with links here? Then I would post them on squidoo. I’m not sure that there is a group way to work on squidoo.Rachel WhiteParticipant
@amyjane: I’m not coordinating the book with our history lessons; pus, I don’t use the SCM Modules. NExt year, our two hitory streams are:
1) finshing up the Ancient world
2) Colonial times to French/Indian Wars
My children will be 13 and 12.
I don’t know how to do fancy stuff with squidoo and such. HOwever, we could have a special post specifically for posting resources we’ve found relevant to the books.MonicaParticipant
Just bumping this thread because I was looking for a study guide or notebooking pages to accompany The Complete Book of Marvels, and I didn’t know if your study guide is still available, Christie.
You can see the little I did at my blog – http://www.4arrowsacademy.weebly.com. After this point, I let dd research her own.Wings2flyParticipant
I am planning resources for the Book of Marvels to start next year and work through for two years. I prefer books (versus web links) to go along with the chapters. Has anyone found some good books to accompany this study with recent photographs and facts? Or is there a study guide I can use? I am planning a guide of my own but it is so time consuming. It is a great book to read, so I often find myself caught up in the reading more than the planning!MonicaParticipant
I never did find anything to accompany the book. What we’ve done this year is watch a YouTube video about each place afterwards. It’s just a quick way to be a tourist for a few minutes. Some of our favorites were the documentary about the building of the Golden Gate Bridge, the tour through Carcassonne, and the videos about Mont Saint Michel.
Just this week we watched some videos about Mt. Vesuvius and Pompeii, which really enthralled my younger son, who loves geology and adventure.
Sorry to not be of more help. I do wish there was some sort of accompaniment for it!thepinkballerinaParticipant
Christie, do you have an updated link to your Squidoo page? Thank you!
No. I’m sorry. I don’t have any blog or online pages any longer. I simply don’t have time or the inclination to do it. We just researched as we went. Though something ready made is always my preference.HeatherParticipant
I know this original thread is old, but in case someone comes across it like I did, I want to add that you can now buy both of the Book of Marvels from LivingBookPress.com for a reasonable priceWings2flyParticipant
Here is a blog with videos by chapter for The Occident, which is the first book in The Book of Marvels. I had used some books to supplement, but we might watch some of these videos too.
