Homeschooling history can be either exciting or the most boring subject you’ve ever studied. Making it exciting is so simple when you find a great curriculum. We have used the Time Travelers curriculum off and on over the years, and since I found one that we hadn’t used on our shelf… we are using it again this year.
We’re studying the American Revolution. The cool thing about it, is that it is all on CD, I simply print the lessons that I am ready to use, and go from there. It also has really awesome projects that correspond to the lessons, and a penmanship or copywork that continues the thought. We do a whole lesson each week, on one single day.
Last week was our first go at it, and it was fun. We were able to study about the origins of our country. The first 13 colonies and the very first colony and capitol of those colonies. We also learned that our own Georgia was the last colony to be established. We learned that the pilgrims came to America solely for religious freedom. They were so dedicated to making sure that they raised their children in a manner that glorified God, that they traveled at peril to their very lives to the New World. Amazing.
