The Middle Ages supplementary activities

When I released the first edition of The Middle Ages, and its matching journal, I had planned to publish a post on my website with a variety of activities to go along with the study. Life happened, and this plan was pushed to the back burner. Recently, I have had several families implore me to help them out with this. I promised that I would finally follow through with my original plan by creating a Pinterest board for this time period. Currently, you will find several great supplemental activities, links to recipes, videos, etc, on this board. Please note, the history channel movie that I pinned there is more appropriate for older students. Enjoy!

Something to love. Something to learn.

I have been down this week with one of the nastiest colds I’ve ever endured in my life. Ack! The sneezing! I’ve spent some time playing around online today, working through some of the WordPress elements I need to learn. I completely conquered designing and making slideshows. Yay, me! (AAAAchooo!)

Do your children know?

Take your children on an interesting and informative ride through American history!

There is no time like the present to learn about how our country came to be. Meet some of the amazing men and women who gave everything they had to insure freedom and liberty.  Is America still truly the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave?

A Living History of Our World, America’s Story, available HERE!

know your rights

For such a time as this…

Every citizen of a country has an obligation to learn about that country, its history, its purpose, its government. Of no less importance is the learning of their own responsibility to that country. America, Land of Opportunity is a course that will teach your high schooler (10th – 12th) their rights and responsibilities as an American citizen.

America, Land of Opportunity (text), the matching journal, and Voices of America’s Past (the compilation that goes with the course) are all meant to be used together. If you do the course as it is laid out (there is a detailed 36 week lesson plan at the front of every journal), it is worth: 1 credit – American history, 1/2 credit – American government, 1/2 credit – American geography. If you add the literature that is listed in the back of the book, and you follow the literary analysis form included in the journal, you may add 1 credit – American literature.
