We went to start the Oregon Trail game today. My son was so excited! We had a MacBook Pro. It should work, but it keeps saying the files are null when I try to start it. Even more frustrating, there is no technical support that I can find to he . . .

Colonization and revolution -too dry :(

This unit ended up as the first totally disappointing one for us. Most of it is very dry and I feel that there are too many details and events covered for this age group. While the text selected is a good one, asking the kids to read an entire chapte . . .

Hi there, I bought the Living Seas Unit for an older child a couple of years ago. Now, I am needing to reorder the curriculum, but the book is different. Does that mean I need the new curriculum as well? What is different between the books? . . .
