Home School in the WoodsHot
Nothing engages a child in the learning experience like hands-on activities! History should never be a boring subject - there's far too much of it to enjoy! Travel the world, step back to days of old, become the heroes and heroines of the eras, and witness God's providence woven throughout it! By being grounded in the "when" and "where" that timelines and maps provide, and living the history through hands-on activities, 3-dimensional projects, drama, cooking, living books and more, your child will be transported to a whole new world and experience the events and meet the amazing people who carved the paths we walk today! The materials we develop at Home School in the Woods are designed to do just that!
We also purchased the timeline book and it is a beautiful notebook that will serve us well into high school. We didn't do as much as I thought we would, but we spent a great deal of time using the explorer and Egypt passport. If you and your kids like crafting and you want them to enjoy learning history, you can't go wrong with homeschool in the woods.
In addition to our "big" WWII project, my daughter was also interested in doing smaller Lap-Pack projects on the Election process and on the 20th Century. So we are doing those as well this spring. We really enjoy the projects and things we have all been learning together as a family. History was nothing like this when I went to school! I might be learning just as much as my daughter!
