As I’ve shared on my blog in the past I’m an eclectic homeschooling mom and I’m going full-on creative with our history by putting together my own “curriculum” now through high school.
History is one of my favorite subjects, though, I’m not sure if I’ve passed that down to my boys, yet.
Awhile back I asked other homeschooling parents for suggestions on history movies or documentaries and I took notes! I’m sharing the list I collected in this post with you. Note that I have not personally watched all of these.
We are in our ninth year of homeschooling, my boys are in seventh and ninth grades. I plan to use this list to search for history movies and documentaries as we need them!
In addition to using movies or documentaries I have planned for us to create our own “notebook of centuries” and I have some history cds for us to listen to. So far this school year the boys have read through all four volumes of Story of the World. We also are participating in a local library book club focusing on American disasters in history.
