Welcome to this week’s edition of Free Curriculum Friday! This week, I’ve teamed up with my friend from Teach Me Joy and she is bringing you an incredible history curriculum resource for FREE for one week only! Check out what she has to say….
We needed something new and different this school year. My son had 2 tough years in a local private school. He was behind in his studies, hated anything to do with learning, and had an all-round bad attitude when it came to school. We decided it would be best to homeschool and I started looking into programs. It was not going to be easy to catch him up and teach him that learning wasn’t all that bad at the same time! It was a daunting task that had to be conquered and I ended up creating the solution myself.
I started with something my son was interested in. He enjoyed history and wanted to learn all about different wars. I wanted to be able to direct his learning and give him a hunger and thirst to seek out information on his own. I crafted a series of unit studies using the skills that I wanted him to learn and the Walk Through Wars History Unit Study Series was born!
