Charlotte Mason Favourite
Numerous Charlotte Mason Living booklists and forums highly recommended this book. In fact that is why we had it reprinted and updated. We knew it was in demand and that it would be an asset to your homeschool.
I first read this book to my two oldest children when they were 7 and 8 and they LOVED IT. It was my first attempt using Charlotte Mason’s idea of reading living books. We would snuggle on the couch and I would finish a chapter and they would ask for another.
They were not the only ones to benefit for I learnt my Australian history for the first time (better late than never!)
This book offers an excellent overview of the history of Australia in one neat package. Read it through and then delve deeper into other Australian history topics if desired. It can also be used as a reference when using Australian Book Traveller with younger children.
A Quick Reference Index at the back of the book makes this a handy aid to basic facts about Australia’s history.
Read aloud from ages 7.
Read alone from ages 10 —11.
Book details: Soft cover printed book with 144 pages and colour illustrations.
2. Australian History Notebooking Pages ebook $7.00
(Use for children over the age of 10)
“As a Mum trying this new idea in my home, I was amazed to see my children eager to engage their creativity and make each page something special. School was becoming fun and they would look forward to adding new pages to their growing notebook. Further, I noted my children would often flick back through their work and re-read pages, thus reinforcing and reviewing the information written. Notebooking has proved its worth.” Anita Lynch
Notebooking is a great way to create a record of learning in a creative and meaningful way. Learning is not limited to the textbook or worksheet but to what has captured your child’s interest. As they create their notebooking pages they learn. As they record their information they discover what they know and they make a reference for the future.
There are 45 Australian themed notebooking pages with a 32 week narration and reading schedule using Our Sunburnt Country.
