Wonder Maps by Bright Ideas Press
I just LOVE Bright Ideas Press!!! If you don't know about them yet... head to their website and check them out.
I am excited to tell you about their newest offering - Wonder Maps. This is truly a one-of-a-kind homeschool product, that you have to have!
Wonder Maps is more than just a collection of maps. It is a downloadable product which is completely customizable! You can choose from over 350 different maps: World maps, United States maps, Historical maps, and Thematic maps.
Each map offers the ability to customize it to your needs...do you want it in color, or just an outline map? Labled or not? You can have the entire continent, just a country, or even simply a state.
In addition, the Teacher guide features downloadable MP3 sessions and a whole list of activites to use this resource in your homeschool. Geography is going to be their favorite subject in no time!
If you are a Mystery of History or All American History fan (which if you are not...you really should be!) You are going to LOVE this feature... all the maps in the history programs are also included in the Wonder Maps program. You get all this for only $49.95!
The numerous ways to utilize this program would take days to describe. I think you will want to head over here for a tutorial video which takes you on a guided tour of this fantastic program!
We have been having so much fun wandering around our globe, my kiddos don't even know this is an "educational tool" of mom's - they think it's for them! Of course, we put this tool right to use in our Mystery of History - Volume 3 lessons.
Bright Ideas Press not only makes incredible products for homeschoolers, they have alot of compassion for them as well. They are offering 20% off your purchases on May 21st to help a VERY needy family get a new house. You can read about them here.
This is directly from an email that current customers received this week from Bright Ideas Press
- "In addition to nominating the Laurie family for Extreme Makeover Home Edition, Bright Ideas Press is hosting a special fundraiser sale on Saturday, May 21st. On this day only, 20% of all sales made with the Laurie family's name in the comments section of your order form will be donated directly to the Laurie family. If you are planning on purchasing any curriculum from Bright Ideas Press for the next school year, I encourage you to make your purchase on May 21st. Do not forget: putting the Laurie family's name in the comments section of your order form will give 20% of your payment as a donation to the Laurie Family Fund.
So, go get the homeschool must-have product - Wonder Maps on May 21st!
