DRAW AND WRITE THROUGH HISTORY REVIEW

Thank you to Draw and Write through History for sending us the drawing curriculum to do with our children. 
 Bring life back to books with the Draw and Write Through History series!  These creative teaching books take your students on an exciting, hands-on adventure as they Draw, write, and retain their world history!  This series of creative and educational childrens’ books is a great supplement to ANY history curriculum.
◊ Chronological, including Biblical history.
◊ Aimed at ages 8+, but adaptable for younger students.
◊ Student friendly!  Starting with Creation, our books teach children how to draw things from history.  Each drawing is broken down into steps, and each step is done in color.  After each section there is a page of cursive handwriting copywork about that time period.
◊ An excellent supplement to ANY history curriculum!
◊ Whether you use the classical, Charlotte Mason, or traditional
text-book method, your students will retain more of what they have learned by drawing and writing about each time period.
◊ Great for homeschool or private school classrooms!
◊ Great birthday presents for children who love to draw!
Draw and Write through history is a great addition to our history curriculum because it gives our children a exciting way to bring history to life on a piece of paper. As a home school mom I watch and learn what our children's learning style is. And that's why I contacted Draw and Write through history because it's not your ordinary reading of text but rather visualizing the image your head for that time period backed up by some reading.  Our children are getting to use there creativity with history which makes history fun and exciting at the same time. Our daughter is very artistic and loves art so much so I have to do some creative fun in our homeschool day. Draw and Write through history offers several different time periods for exciting learning in your home. Even if you don't home school this program is a great way to learn history. There is an added bonus, the cursive writing throughout the book. Our daughter has not done any formal handwriting program and she caught on very quickly. Love,Love these books and can't wait to buy more!!!!!
