The Digital Companion Guide supplies you with:
* coloring pages for the children to color as they listen to the audio.
* pictures of the person being studied so the child learns to identify what he or she looked like.
* character qualities to learn from the life of the person being studied; definitions are given and the student briefly writes or tells how the person demonstrated that quality.
* lined pages to write coordinating Bible verses (we supply the reference and you choose the version).
* often a written story for the child to read or for you or an older sibling to read to him.
* occasional fun projects that coordinate with the lesson (these are optional).
* comprehension questions that can be used as a test, or better yet, as a game to build attentiveness skills and train the child to listen for the answers as they listen to the recording as many times as they like.
The more they listen to the story, the more facts they will retain.
* information about when and where in American history the story took place.
Just print as many copies as you need for all your children.
