History is one of our favorite subjects to study. It’s exciting to read stories of what has happened in the past and how it has impacted our lives in the present day. We often learn of people we did not previously know and how they changed the way our works even today. It’s easier for our homeschool when history reads like a story, telling the details of events and other people’s lives like we had sat down with a novel.
We also incorporate social studies projects to help understand the ideas we have read and discussed. We’ve made wigwams when discussing Native Americans and covered wagons when reading about pioneers. We also have fun playing social studies games. The projects are the kids favorite activities and the fun in learning is mine!
