Softcover The Instructor's Activity Guide for Snapshots of Ancient History. Each chapter in Snapshots of Ancient History has a correlating chapter in the Instructor’s Activity Guide. Each of these chapters includes:

  • Definitions, Questions, Mapwork, and Timeline instructions that correspond to the Student Activity Guides. These materials include all the answers and reference materials you need to make using the Student Activity Guide a breeze.
  • Reading Suggestions. If you want to extend or deepen each chapter’s topic, we provide a list of recommended supplemental reading. Suggestions are divided based on book type, so if you’re looking for a picture book biography, folklore or mythological stories, nonfiction books, or chapter books, you can easily find the type of book that will work best for you.
  • Cross References. We recommend several general reference books such as the Kingfisher Encyclopedia of World History. Each chapter includes relevant cross-reference pages for those books so you don’t have to hunt them down yourself.

Activities include craft activities, science experiments, STEM challenges, imaginative prompts, recipes, traditional and original games, and more. 
  • Minecraft Building Prompt. These building prompts describe historic locations and encourage your child to build their own version in Minecraft. Minecraft can be played on phones, tablets, computers, and gaming consoles. You do not need an internet connection or to use online multiplayer mode to do our building prompts. Most prompts can also be completed with LEGOs or other building materials.
