Get ready for an exciting voyage around the world! This year your child will travel to all seven continents and learn about the land and cultures of the world. While studying Grade 7: Exploring Your World, your child will meet families from around the globe and get a fascinating look at how they live and what they eat; you'll explore various landscapes, from the tropical rainforests of Brazil and Papau New Guinea to the Sahara Desert and the frozen wasteland of Antarctica and you'll comlete a variety of projects, from creating different types of maps to creating international works of art. This year is packed full of great books and open ended projects!

The literature this year takes you to many destinations, from a road trip across the United States with Salamanca and her grandparents in Walk Two Moons, across the Pacific Ocean in an ancient balsa raft in Kon-Tiki, and to distant galaxies far beyond our own in the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

You'll also study the religions of the world and learn about the variety of belief systems, from the more comon (Christianity and Islam) to the less known native religions and even ancient beliefs. You will also study a variety of myths about the origins of the world in In the Beginning: Creation Stories from Around the World.

Your science focus this year is Chemistry, using Elemental Science's Chemistry for the Logic Stage program.

This hands on, literature based study will guide you on an unforgettable journey around the world, right from the comforts of your home. I hope you enjoy studying it as much as I enjoyed putting it together! The 327 page Instructor's Guide includes a complete schedule (both in weekly grid format as well as a daily list), book list, movies around the world list, a set of 10+ narration cards, dictation passages taken right from the lliterature selections, a list of project ideas, map work, research projects and more.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
