Classical Acts & Facts Cards

Each of the Classical Conversations history card sets include 42 cards (numbered consecutively from 1-168 throughout the series) offering timeline "pegs" on which kids can "hang" more information as they research and learn. Made from sturdy glossy cardstock, every card features a famous full-color work of art and title denoting the events covered on one side, and in-depth explanation on the other side. These sets will be reused every four years, so kids are encouraged to memorize titles first, then to familiarize themselves with the explanations on the back.

In the righthand corner of the front of each card, a color and symbol denote the era in which the events or historical figures on that card transpired and/or lived. There are several of these designations, which subdivide the four main eras: Ancient World, Medieval World, New World, and Modern World. On the back left sidebar of each card is a timeline with a mark showing where the information on that card falls. Kids can make timelines on the wall, play games with these cards, use them to facilitate further study, or be used in any way families can come up with to supplement or guide history learning. Christian events and people are emphasized.

Each of the Classical Conversations science card sets include 31 cards (numbered consecutively from 1-124 throughout the series) offering "pegs" on which kids can "hang" more information as they research and learn. Made from sturdy glossy cardstock, every card features a full-color image and title denoting the topic on one side, and in-depth explanation on the other side. These sets are reused every four years, so kids are encouraged to memorize titles first, and familiarize themselves with the explanations later.

In the righthand corner of the front of each card, a color and subject heading denote the topic covered on that card. There are nine designations, which include biology, geology, ecology, astronomy, physics, chemistry, origins, anatomy, and famous scientists. Kids can play games with these cards, use them to facilitate further study, or use them in any way you come up with to supplement or guide science learning. These are Christian in orientation, so origins are approached from a Creationist perspective.

In the righthand corner of the front of each card, a color and subject heading denote the topic covered on that card. There are multiple designations for science and history. Kids can play games with these cards, use them to facilitate further study, or use them in any way you come up with to supplement or guide science learning. These are Christian in orientation, so origins are approached from a Creationist perspective, and the history cards include several references to biblical events and figures.

These cards will inevitably be compared to the history and Bible cards from Veritas Press.One major difference between these and the Veritas Press cards is that the Classical Conversations cards do not include suggested further reading references at the bottom of each card. The Classical Conversations cards are intended more for memory work, and to provide a solid structure on which to hang more details and perspectives.
