Teaching history with a hands-on approach is what Home School In the Woods emphasizes. They want to see your student learn to love history. The creators of the Home School In The Woods curriculum are a homeschool family themselves. They have experience searching for a hands-on and fun curriculum and the lack of materials at that time has resulted in the programs that they now offer. They have created an approach using lap book materials, file folder board games and printable timelines that draws students into learning through printable costumes, games and even recipes. Members of the Homeschool Review Crew were given the opportunity recently to use a few of the materials that Home School In the Woods offers the educational community. They reviewed:
