Carnival of Homeschooling: The History Edition


Carnival of #Homeschooling: History Edition @hsbapost

History is our theme at The Homeschool Post this month.  We’re sharing our ideas for bringing history to life for our kids through books, educational shows, field trips, time lines, and more.

Since it’s our turn again to host the Carnival of Homeschooling, I thought I would feature some history-related posts from our own writing team:

Dan from shares his educational experiences in London with his family as they visit historical locations in this post: A Boring Month in London.

Melissa at Not a Stepford Life shares her hands-on history lessons in this post Homeschooling Hazards.

Misty shares Three Ways to Bring History to Life for Your Kids on her blog, Joy in the Journey.

I’ve shared a few posts about our history studies on my blog Embracing Destiny: Bringing History to Life with Little House on the Prairie and The Prairie Primer, Surprised by History, and Living Books and History.

We received some great entries for the Carnival of Homeschooling this week, so grab your favorite cuppa and enjoy . . .

Happy Homeschooling,

I'm a reader, writer, dreamer, wife, and homeschooling mom of 3 girls. We take a relaxed, eclectic, Charlotte Mason-leaning, Montessori-ish, literature-rich, delight-directed, almost unschooling-at-times approach to learning. Lots of unit studies, field trips, and lapbooks, too. I like to blog about our learning adventures (plus faith and encouragement) at Embracing Destiny.
