  1. I have never been a fan of history so when I decided to homeschool my son my biggest fear was not giving him enough education when it comes to History. I love the idea of including games with the learning, it makes history fun which is something I never thought I’d say! Thank you for all the insight on how to make history more than “just reading a book”.

  2. Thanks for the geography resources and pretty neat that you included history-based audio dramas! Not sure if you ever integrate music into your homeschool but we think connecting music and sound to geography lessons can give children a great sense of some of the places they study. In case you are interested, we’ve shared some activities and resources that connect sound and music to places around the world for people who are interested in linking sound and music to geography lessons or curriculum.

  3. Fantastic list; many resources I am not familiar with. We do all of our history study through literature with a strong emphasis on geography but as the kids get older, I know I will want to focus more on planned curriculum. Thanks–found this at the Homeschool Nook!

  4. Oh I just had to check this post out… see I am a homeschooling mom that HATES teaching history. There are certain time periods that are fun to teach and we’ve found great picture books that have captivated my children but overall we are not usually thrilled to start a new history unit. Give us science any day! I’ll definitely be looking into some of these resources. Maybe that will help.

  5. This year, I stumbled across Heritage History ( and it has really worked out great for us. The premise is self-paced, independent learning through reading public domain literature. Most of the levels have online quizzes for parents who want to make sure their kid is learning and all the books are in kindle format so it was both inexpensive and space saving. I keep having these ideas that I’ll someday create a Charlotte Mason homeschool; but, for now, I just have my daughter write out answers to the five W’s for a few chapters and that’s her “narration”. She seems to be really enjoying the books and we actually decided to combine social studies and reading this year.

  6. Hi Olivia! Wow… thank you! LOL What a great compliment!

    I have written two books on homeschooling:

    Plan to Be Flexible: Designing a Homeschool Rhythm and Curriculum Plan That Works for Your Family ; and
    Back to School Survival Manual: A Girlfriend’s Guide to an Organized and Successful Homeschool Year

    I’d love for you to check them out!

    Thank you again for visiting, and I hope to see you again here soon! Have a great day. 🙂

  7. Hi Alicia Michelle,

    After reading several of your homeschool posts, I have decided that you are like the ULTIMATE resourceful homeschooling mom. You could probably write a guide that would sell like hotcakes. 🙂 You really have a gift with providing valuable information.

    Thank you for sharing with us at Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop

  8. These are great! Some are favorites of ours. I’ve never heard of the Apologia history curriculum. I’ll have to go check it out. I love the idea of the research!
