    1- I am very excited about using these photos since I am a more visual learner, and I think I have a couple children who are, also. It helps to make history more real, in addition to artists’ interpretations.
    2- The cards are very sturdy and the copies look like real photos.
    3- I appreciate having the connections made between the artifacts and the scriptures.
    4- I also like the sample questions.

    Two critiques:
    1- I miss not knowing where the items were found (Helmet of Miltiades, etc), where they are located (ie. “Amphitheater”), or what year they were created (all of them). Knowing the dates would especially help me know when to add it into our history at the right “time” (lol). I realize that there might be reasons that I am unaware of that make it impossible or hard to include these details.
    2- For me, it would be nice to have the information about each item on the back of the card, instead of on a separate piece of paper.
    — Neither of these are deal-breakers, though, and I would most certainly buy this again or suggest it to a friend.

    These are so nice to have on display! My son loves looking at them and will often, without any prompting from me, go and draw whichever picture we looked at, just for fun! Good to know he’s really paying attention. 😉

    The images are clear and the card stock they are printed on is good and sturdy. The Code of Hammurabi survived my toddler’s foot attack quite well. I try to be as frugal as possible and the printed version is worth every penny. I’m always impressed by SCM products and this is no exception.

    Just one thing I’d change… For the Egypt packet, put each pyramid on its own paper so we can see them in greater detail.

    These look fantastic! Would love to see one for Ancient India, Ancient China, and Ancient Mesoamerica 😄

      The Stuff They Left Behind Portfolios include pictures of artifacts from many civilizations. That’s why the titles say “from the days of” each civilization—those are the major powers during those time periods, but the portfolios include pictures from other civilizations that were around in each era.

    Get these! We have used these for all the history modules, and my kids and I get so excited when one of the pictures from “The Stuff They Left Behind” is in the schedule. It feels like a hidden treasure is about to be unveiled. It has often led to more research, YouTube videos, and lots of discussion. The quality of the paper and printing is incredible- we love to display them in the house. Don’t miss out on these!
