History through Literature - Book Lists for Elementary 0

History through Literature – Book Lists for Units on China, Middle Ages, American Revolution and More!

When we are doing history units, I’ve always tried to bring in a rich selection of literature. Historical fiction is a powerful way to make readers feel more connected to that period. A book like Johnny Tremain (affiliate link) has a rich cast of memorable characters that helps the period, in this case the American Revolutionary period, come to life. We have brought in a wide selection of books for...

We had a lot of fun watching Terry Jones’ Medieval Lives (affiliate link, but I suggest you look on youtube to see if it’s available).  The 8...

Middle Ages – Notebook Pages on England and France (800-1200)

Last week all we did for history was continue reading The Adventures of Robin Hood. (affiliate link).   The kids are really loving the book (and so am I!). Each chapter is a complete adventure unto itself. This week we’ll be going into a lot of detail about feudalism (and I created a simulation that I think the kids will really love!), but before we do that, I really wanted to review all...

These roles were ‘fixed...

Elementary, Middle School, High School Tips

Elementary, Middle School, High School Tips

Welcome!  I’m Liesl, the homeschool Mom of three wonderful kids. We have homeschooled right from the start and we decided to homeschool all the way through high school. This was a discussion we had regularly along the way; at times the kids considered going to public schools but the benefits (for our family) seemed to outweigh the public school option (especially with the Pandemic and so forth).  A little side...
