Home School in the Woods ~ Hands-On History Lap-Pack: The 20th Century in America ~ a TOS review

a3 Can I tell you again how much I love the products from Home School in the Woods!?! So much so, that when a call went out to help fill a review spot for the Hands-On History Lap-Pak: The 20th Century in America, I jumped at the chance without really thinking it through :) {we are currently not studying the 20th Century} however, I am so glad I did!

Hands-On History Lap-Pak: The 20th Century in America is just as fabulous as the other products Home School in the Woods offers. This Lap-Pak is more than just a Lap Book it is a complete history unit study with 22 exciting, hands-on projects to complete. Through coloring, researching, drawing & writing, and gluing your child will take a journey through 20th century America discovering the details of World Wars, transportation, music, food, medical advances, and the stock market collapse you will bring History to life!


This History Lap-Pak is available either by instant PDF download for $21.95 or on CD for $22.95. We received the PDF download which is accessible through the Adobe reader and includes :

~ instructions/directions

~ Lap-Pak Project Masters

~ Reading Text Pages

As I mentioned before, I jumped the gun on this review. We are currently not studying the 20th Century but will be in September so I used this review for me. It was a really interesting refresher course for me as I begin to prep for our fall studies and I learned that I really do love the hands-on learning style.


The thoroughness and detail in this product is so amazing that the  20th Century History Lap-Pak can be used as a stand alone unit study as it is designed. However, I think it would make a great addition to your favorite history program. Especially, if your current program does not offer many hands on lessons. The product comes with 32 pages of reading text about each topic covered and a list of suggested reading material to compliment your learning. Because I used this product for me I went ahead and moved at a faster pace and assembled the Lap-Pak completely. I found myself digging in a little deeper on some of the topics, especially when completing the timeline.  I really enjoyed the “Dining through the Decades” and reminiscing about some of the “comfort” foods of the 20th Century still around today.


Again I can’t say enough about Home School in the Woods or a8this product, Hands-On History Lap-Pak: The 20th Century in America. I wholeheartedly recommend this product! It has really gotten me excited for Madison to learn about this time period in the fall. She enjoys artsy/crafty learning and this will be right up her alley.
