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!
