Homeschool history is one of our favorite subjects to study! We love using our history studies to include a variety of subject areas like writing and reading. Most of all, we enjoy learning about our past and how we can apply that knowledge in our modern world.
Let’s Chat About Homeschool History is part of a Periscope & blog series for homeschoolers helping homeschoolers. Once a week, a homeschool subject area will be discussed with curricula resources and recommendations given. You can learn more details and subjects by scrolling down.
I couldn’t wait to hear what other homeschoolers had to share for their homeschool history studies. We have a hard time keeping our Professor (11) challenged with history. The boys constantly has his nose in a history text-fiction or nonfiction.
We were very fortunate to find All American History from Bright Ideas Press this year. I have shared our review plus different ways we have used this outstanding homeschool history curriculum. It was so thorough that I fear we may have a hard time finding another homeschool history to match.
I am in the process of researching our homeschool history options for next year. I am strongly leaning towards a world history/cultures/geography type of curriculum. I have yet to find one that I feel will best fit our family. If you have any recommendations, let me know!
Well, my friends on Periscope and over at Rock Your Homeschool Facebook group have come to the rescue again! They shared their homeschool history resources and recommendations-and now I want to share with you! Please leave your recommendations in a comment below or email me at busyboysbrig[email protected]. I love reading about and adding your suggestions!
