Maine homeschooled students must cover Maine Studies sometime between the 6th and 12th grade. This workbook is a fun way to do it! While it might be easier for some and harder for others, you the parent/teacher can make it work for your child. If you are working with credits, a half credit is generally considered to be about 40 hours. If you see that your student is having a rough time with it, go through and cut back on some of the assignments. You customize it to fit your child's pace. Another option would be to consider having them work on it over a couple years! On the other hand, your student may speed right through it. You can also have your student prepare an optional project; there is page to help inspire that as well. Take a look and see if this curriculum is right for your family. You might even want to do it along with them; Maine is a cool state!!!
