Homeschool Social Studies

Homeschool social studies can be such a fun subject to teach AND learn! My boys love learning about the different periods in history, and the history of different countries and cultures. My youngest recently delved into the Civil War. He thinks it’s fascinating learning about the battles between the North and the South. He loves finding those history/landmark markers in towns and on highways. Whenever we see one, we always try to stop and read them if possible.

Outside of American history, he’s looking forward to getting into medieval and European history. I don’t know a lot about those things, but fortunately his father does, and I have no shame in admitting when I need help, and looking for that help when I do. That’s especially true when it comes to helping my older son with his high school homeschool social studies. Thank goodness for libraries, the Internet and our elders to who love to tell stories! :)
