History Studies Help Us Understand the Past and Prepare For the Future!
History is my favorite subject, both to teach and to study. To keep it fresh and interesting, intersperse any textbook or workbook study with lots of historical fiction at the child's reading level. Click the next link and use the Amazon search box to find 'Let the Authors Speak' or 'All Through the Ages' which list fiction and non-fiction resources by time period...
This History section covers both World and United States History.
When you are studying an era, especially with young children, use all the visual aids you can find...maps, timelines, the internet, library picturebooks, and hands-on projects! Older children will appreciate the opportunity to watch a movie or documentary set in that time to make a bygone civilization seem more real.
Below are some wonderful resources from which to choose - but please don't limit yourself to the carousel items - click on an item below to go to Amazon.com and search under Books - History Timelines, or Usborne History, or maybe History Maps... and, as long as you use our link to Amazon, no matter what you choose you'll benefit this website!
Below are links to my reviews of excellent history curriculum:
TruthQuest is a wonderful springboard for discussion and for helping to shape your child's worldview. From creation through modern times, think and read your way through the story of God's relationship with Man.
