This curriculum is in the process of being re-published. The curriculum is being updated with a YouTube playlist to accompany it, some new activities, and a tiny bit of new text here and there. I have just finished chapter 10, so I am over halfway done. I hope to have it finished and up for sale on Amazon by July/August.
This curriculum is now available for purchase on this site and also on Amazon. (If you want to get it really fast and with cheaper shipping, use Amazon! ;)
Mapping the World with Art
Nov. 2011: I checked all the links in the activity section and replaced those that were no longer available. I posted all the old and new current links on the Mapping the World playlist on my channel: YouTube.com/eejm63. ALSO, I found one link that had gone missing-- the link for the cut-and-assemble model of the Santa Maria. If you would like a copy of the pattern, click here.
Dec. 2011: I have switched over to professionally printed CDs and DVDs. I still duplicate them myself, but I don't have to put on labels any more.
Sept. 2012: Replaced some missing videos that disappeared at the top of the list. Added two nice videos on Eratosthenes and one on constellations. I will try my best to find as many videos as I can to go with the early chapters.
Errata: Drawing lesson 4 on DVD 1. Apparently, I switched Corsica and Sardinia. They are labeled correctly in the booklet. (I guess after multiple "takes" for the video, my brain glitched). I give everyone my most sincere apologies and will try to figure out a way to amend the DVD somehow.

Oct. 2012: I tweaked the Internet links in the text, switching them all over to YouTube.com/TheBasementWorkshop. I also checked all the links on the playlist and updated the ones that were missing.
Nov. 2011: I checked all the Internet links and updated any that were no longer functioning. Any new links were posted as part of the Elements playlist on the Basement Workshop YouTube channel.
Dec. 2011: I reworked the Periodic Kingdom drawing and posted it as a T-shirt design in my T-shirt store. (The new design looks basically like the old one, just with everything neatened up a bit) The only additions were a radioactive sign on the door of Technetium, and the Bromine Pond. All Elements curricula that go out in 2012 will have this new drawing in place of the old one. I tweaked the Periodic Kingdom fairly tale just a bit, too. Also, I fixed an unbelievable "how-did-that-ever-happen" typo on the first page of the "Quick Six" cards where Fluorine had an "l" after the "F" symbol. (The correct symbol is used consistently throughout the text.) You can get both updates here.
March 2012: In answer key for chapter 8, number 8 should say "centrosome" not "c." In question 10, the word "cells" should be singular not plural. Downoads and hard copies purchased after April 1 will already reflect these changes.
