I’m thinking about doing US history units over the summer (Homeschool in the Woods) and returning to a 4 year history cycle again in the fall. After getting some input from Gilbert who wanted a more hands-on interactive program, I have chosen The World in Ancient Times series as our main spine for next year.
The books in this series include:
The Early Human World
The Ancient Near Easter World
The Ancient Egyptian World
The Ancient South Asian World
The Ancient Chinese World
The Ancient Greek World
The Ancient Roman World
The Ancient American World
These books can be found easily (and cheaply) on Albiris or if you are very lucky your local library.
My plan is to cover a book a month, include supplemental reading, hands on activities, and movies. I know a lot of people use this series more as supplement for Human Odyssey but after looking at both books, I like this series better. I will make sure to post what my plan is when I start to schedule.
Seems like things are coming together beautiful on the planning home front. I was honestly dreading these moments after last summer’s “grass is greener” breakdown.
