The Medieval History Portfolio is designed for students ages 8, or 9 and up. The body of the Portfolio is divided into chapters of commonly studied historical time periods, cultures and civilizations. The Table of Contents provides a thorough reference index to work with, indicating topics covering: works of literature, important people, works of art and architecture, important places and events, plus advances in science and technology. The attractively formatted Portfolios contain an entirely unique system of "image boxes" and "text boxes" that support and showcase the student's work, whether hand or type written reports, graphs, diagrams, hand drawn images, photographs, or images accessed from the Internet. Black-line maps of the regions being studied are provided. Companion products are the Teacher's Guide, and Full Color Maps.
