Last week I shared our favorite homeschooling resources for science (and nature study!). This week let's take a look at some fabulous resources for homeschooling history and geography.
Homeschool History Fun
It doesn't matter if you follow a chronological sequence (we do!), geographic, or some other format, you can always include fun games, books, or other resources. We don't really spend a lot of time on detailed projects and activities. Instead, we like to read fun books or play games. Occasionally we'll do a project (usually some kind of paper craft). This year we've added a timeline and history notebooking to our schedule. Below you'll find a list of some of our favorite history and geography resources.
