Did you catch my post about our drama & trauma with making mid-year curriculum changes. I promised to show you our top home school curriculum choices and some samples to try . I’m here to deliver on that promise! If you haven’t read “Navigating Curriculum Choices – Part 1, you might want to head on over and check it out.
We’re Talkin’ Geography (with some history & mapping thrown in to make it even MORE fun!).
We tried this home school curriculum as a supplement for history & geography. My kids LOVE all things history, so why not add a supplement! Their “Children’s Geography” series is absolute tops! It’s like going on an overseas trip without the jet lag! This year we are doing their Medieval History (Vol. IV). We checked out their sample chapters which covered Spain & Portugal. The kids enjoyed it so much they wanted to start doing it in the summer before school actually began. And, we are now planning a spring trip to Spain!
Why we think Knowledge Quest is a great homeschool curriculum:
- PDF ebooks – We will probably be reading them on the airplane!
- Links within the e-book for videos that cover cultural aspects of each country including really cool things that you are not going to find in a classroom textbook or a travel guidebook.
- Maps! Lots of maps!
- Country specific history timelines.
- If the read-aloud isn’t lively enough for you; they also include activities, recipes, and passports to fill in for each country. Something for every stage or style of learning.
Knowledge Quest has loads of other curriculum choices as well. I spend all day dreaming ambitious adventures while learning about the world!Click To Tweet
