Disclosure: I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew
We have enjoyed using Home School in the Woods to supplement our history before, and this time we loved it as well! We’ve been enjoying their Time Travelers U.S. History Studies, and it goes along perfectly with our American History this summer. We are working through the Time Travelers: The American Revolution pack, for hands on learning in our homeschool.
This summer we have been working through fun history projects, and my kids have loved it! I have to be honest- I’m not a fan of putting together units with projects… and that’s where Home School in the Woods Time Travelers have come in. After reading our history, I usually search for a video to watch on YouTube, recapping what we just learned. Then we take to the projects in our pack, at the family table.
Our favorite has been making newspapers! The kids had so much fun with this- even though the packs are suggested ages 8+ my 6 year old loved joining in. So if you have younger kiddos, I say definitely let them tag along. We like doing these as a family because everyone can work at their own level, and do their own activity. Younger children will enjoy coloring the pictures, and pasting in a notebook. There are so many ways to adjust these history studies for all ages.
Parents will find each download has a folder with lessons, a folder with correlating, labeled projects, as well as instructions, photos, and a resource list. Everything is easy to find, print out, and simple to use. Finding each project in the photos provided in the download is very helpful, especially for kids that need to see what the finished project looks like (or this mama, who is super visual).
The pack contains 25 lessons that can be completed in 5-10 weeks, or as you choose. They cover all of the politics and conflicts that launched a new nation, including the French and Indian War, George vs George, government, taxing, the Boston Tea Party, and so much more! You can view the scope and sequence by selecting the scope/seq tab midway down on this page. I love how they cover not only the big, most well known events and people, but lesser-known events that happened and people that affected the war and revolution- like women of the war, and battles in the south.
I have found these projects to be meaningful, interesting, and helpful for my children to remember what we’ve learned together. We really love putting together lap books, and I can’t wait to do that soon. We’ve been so busy with baseball, and celebrating sumer with friends we haven’t had a chance to get everything put together, but we will!
Included in the Time Travelers: The American Revolution masters are the timeline figures! The set included for this pack can be found here, but there are so many sets to add for all your homeschool history studies. Home School in the Woods offers several different sets of timeline figures and have added some new ones recently- check them out!
