History and Geography Resources

History and Geography resources are always discounted at Schoolhouse Publishing!

Teaching geography and history through activities and projects is one of the reasons I love these subjects!  They just lend themselves to this kind of fun!  The resources here will take your history program and help it to come alive - easily.  (Obviously none of us need to be overwhelmed with more "stuff" in this busy season of life!)  It's as easy as cooking a historic or ethnic dish, trying your hand at an art project from another country or a craft from the past.  Even easier, watch a DVD, play a game, or put together a puzzle.  Check through these resources for some fun ideas.  These also make great gift ideas (just pass your wish list on to the grandparents).  Spark your history and geography,and save money at the same time.

Drive Thru History is a joyride through the fast lane of time gone by, led by the irreverent but always relevant Dave Stotts. Dave doesn't just talk about history; he lives it—in fast, easy-to-digest road trips. Take, for instance, the trip to the Coliseum in Rome where Dave accidentally picks a fight with one of those cheesy "Roman guards" who'll pose for a picture for a couple of euros. Suddenly, Dave is Maximus in a fight to the death (in his mind, that is). Drive Thru History makes exploring the history of Western civilization meaningful and totally entertaining.

The author, Loree' Pettit did a wonderful job of making Eat Your Way Through the USA a “friendly” book, adapting the recipes to be as simple as possible. You won’t need to make trips to specialty food stores. She even rated each recipe so you will know at a glance if it is easy or difficult. Included in the book are food profiles, cultural tidbits, food journaling opportunities, and much more. The USA book is divided into 50 states + DC (featuring a meal from each). What a fun way to homeschool - after all, you have to eat! Why not make eating an educational experience???
