What on Earth Can I Do? Junior Notebooking Journal is a soft covered spiral bound book. It has a lot of the same components as the other notebook journal but is geared more towards the younger elementary grades with larger print and lined paper to write on. Fill in the blank questions, coloring pages, word and crossword puzzles, mini books, and copy work of scriptures.

What on Earth Can I Do? Coloring Book has 64 coloring pages of both biblical events, historical, and character traits. Each page had either a scripture verse of a general saying. This book would be for lower elementary kids who enjoy coloring. The coloring pages are very detailed.

How did I use What on Earth Can I Do? In our homeschool?
This year we have been studying World War II so it has been a nice complement to our other studies. We did the studies 4 times a week and we went at our own pace. We finished almost 4 lessons during this review period.

For the What on Earth Can I Do? Notebooking Journal we did it orally as I thought it was a tad bit advanced for my children to do by themselves. My fifth grader with her physical challenges would have a hard time with the writing lessons and the space provided. We had some wonderful discussions with the questions. I don’t shy away from the Holocaust.

For the What on Earth Can I Do? Junior Notebooking Journal my kids took turns doing various activities in the book or they wrote on paper the scripture. This broke up the activities with coloring and puzzles. Then we finished up with a mini book after each lesson. Neither one of my children are big on writing. My son is just a typical boy and my daughter has physical limitations so I really appreciated all the variety included in the notebooks.

There is a lot of reading and the activities in the notebooks and the coloring book were nice. I let them color or do some of the activities in the notebooks while I read to them.

My Final Thoughts:

I cannot begin to say enough of wonderful things about, What on Earth Can I Do? Series. I haven’t used any of the previous books from this series. This is the forth in the series. I would recommend the journals and coloring books it’s worth the extra cost. They add a lot to the program.

This is a Biblically sound program with a Christian worldview that I highly recommend. This is truly an amazing program to add to your family devotional. I look forward to adding the other, ‘What We Believe Series” into my homeschool resource.

My family loves history and the kids loved it. That says a lot to a mom when the kids are excited to do a program.
