Dislikes: Can't really think of any!
We found the BJU heritage studies at the library a few months into our school year. We were using another program and my daughter HATED history! SO I thought we'd try this. It was like day and night! We are almost done with the book and every day she asks for more! She loves the activities, notebook pages and even looking at the student book! I couldn't believe the difference in her attitude towards history just by changing to this curriculum!
The teacher manual is a must, it lays everything out for you from materials to extra facts for you to talk about to enrich the lesson. The notebook pages aren't required but really help to reinforce the topics covered and often are fun activities like decorating a tipi or making a canoe.
She's loved it so much and got really excited about BJU's distance learning program that we'll be using that next year for ALL our subjects!
