As the end of the school year is fast approaching, it’s time to start looking back to see what curriculum we felt helped us the most throughout this year. We of our most used resources without a doubt this year has been SchoolhouseTeachers.com.
This year in history we studied American History and Drive-Thru History: America History has been one of our favorite resources from SchoolhouseTeachers.com. Several times throughout the year, we joined Dave Stotts as he showed us first-hand some of the places where our founding fathers risked their lives to shape this great nation.
In episodes 1 thru 6, Dave Stotts drives through Italy, Spain, England and Holland tracking down the story of Christopher and America’s Pilgrims. Then we head to Boston, Lexington and Concord to see the historic beginnings of the Revolutionary War. If that wasn’t enough, in episodes 7-12 we headed to visit the site of the Jamestown colony, tour Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello plantation, and even joined Dave as he reenacted the crossing of the Delaware.
