Blog Cruise ~ Favorite History Resource

Stack of vintage books isolated on white

Homeschool moms just love talking curriculum. It’ s usually THE topic of conversation when you first discover someone else homeschools. Questions such as, “What do you use for math?”, or “What’s your favorite grammar curriculum?” rank at the top of my list of “frequently asked questions I hear most”.

A couple of weeks ago, the Crew offered up opinions on their favorite SCIENCE resources. This week, we will share about history by answering this question:

What’s your favorite history resource?

We begin this blog cruise with Tess at Circling through This Life, where a popular literature-based homeschool resource brings history alive for her homeschool in “A Novel Idea: Bringing History to Life“.

Next, Amy, at One Blessed Mamma, shares several resources in “Homeschool History Resources: I Can’t Pick Just One!

In “Tools to Knowing and Learning History,” Cariann shares her history favorites at Unionvale Homeschool.

At Blessed Quiver, Michelle uses a classical approach to history in ” Our History Classes“.

In “History with Living Books“, Lexi, at Lextin Academy, shares her love for different booklists!

It’s obvious that Kym enjoys teaching history. Check out her “History Favorites” at Homeschool Coffee Break.

At Journey to Excellence, Nicole introduces you to “America: The Story of Us“.

Jane is “Putting Together the Puzzle” with history at Mozi Esmé.

In “My love affair with biographies“, Debra explains how she came to love this resource at Footprints in the Butter.

At Debbie’s Homeschool Corner, Debbie tells us about “Lots of History Choices.”

At Ozark Ramblings, history is never boring for Beth’s students,  in “History doesn’t require NoDoz“.

Finally, I share how we bring history to life at Ben and Me, with “F is for Field Trip“.

  1. I loved F is for Field Trips! Learning history through travel is one of my favorite things to do. And, there are so many places, as Marcy mentioned, that are free to tour. I recently spent four hours touring the Conococheague Institute in Pennsylvania, learning more than I ever have before about Pennsylvania’s French and Indian War history. The director, Heather Wade, took my family on a wonderful tour of the site and shared wonderfully detailed information. I look forward to visiting the Institute again. has a wonderful list of field trip destinations and travel tips this month.
