This book is a terrific curriculum for home school families. It is also a rich resource for teachers in public school.

“California Out of the Box is an excellent interdisciplinary history curriculum created by Christine Echeverri. Designed for children in grades three through six, the material covers the time from California’s prehistory to the 1930’s. Echeverri uses an interesting approach to the study of California history in that she pairs pieces of historical fiction along with discussing factual aspects of the story of California, not only its history but also information about habitat, ethnic make up, geography and science…

…The material is organized into five sections, meant to be taught over a period of thirty-six weeks. The curriculum is well-organized and easy to use.”
