In government schools, history tends to be a read-only subject. Thankfully, however, your homeschooled children have options. If you have a child who dreads reading but loves art and drama, the Famous Figures series is the perfect history supplement for him.
Each meticulous Famous Figures of the Early Modern Era illustration is based on authentic mosaics, paintings, and sculptures. Easy-to-assemble colored characters are printed on heavy cardstock with perforated pages for trouble-free removal. Your student will cut out the figures, punch holes where directed, and attach conventional fasteners. Now your Famous Figures of the Early Modern Era are ready to take center stage as your child reenacts the age of empires and new beginnings.
If your student is an avid artist, he will be pleased to discover that a colorable version of each figure is also included on the same sturdy cardstock. Fill in each Early Modern Era figure with hues as realistic or exotic as you wish.
Famous Figures of the Early Modern Era includes figures of Mary the Queen of Scots, James I, Samuel de Champlain, Queen Nzinga, Shah Jahan, Pocahontas, Rembrandt, Louis XIV, Isaac Newton, William Penn, Peter the Great, Johann Sebastian Bach, Ch’ien-lung, Captain James Cook, Catherine the Great, William Wilberforce, Napoleon Bonaparte, Robert Fulton, William Clark, Simón Bolívar, and Sacagawea. A detailed biography section provides vital information about the Early Modern Era characters. Famous Figures of the Early Modern Era also includes a companion reading list for each character, for parent/teacher read-aloud, and independent readers.

I really wasn't expecting 2 of each figure, which was a nice surprise. For every figure you have the option of cutting out the ready-made figure or coloring your own. My son likes choosing which ones to color and which not to (he generally is not interested in coloring the females, go figure). I'm so thankful this was included in our kit. My son is extra "wiggly" and doesn't love sitting for school time. We figured out that if he can color his famous figures while I read to him, it helps him focus on the reading better. He colors during history, science, and literature. Thank you, Timberdoodle!
