Curriculum and Resources for Teaching Social Studies in Your Homeschool

Well, summer is almost over and I am almost done with this series of posts about curriculum and resource options for homeschoolers. I have converted this series of posts into static pages, which you can see at the top of this blog. I will update the pages as I learn about changes in curriculum and/or new curriculums.

Today, I am covering social studies curriculums and resources. As with the rest of the posts in this series, I’m not covering online/distance learning programs in this post. I have a separate page set up with online/distance learning curriculums.

I must confess that social studies is not our favorite subject, we tend to be more of a math and science oriented family, with language arts coming in 3rd and social studies coming in last for the most part. Thus far, the only social studies program that we have used and really enjoyed was my daughter’s AP Psychology book. That doesn’t mean, however, that I don’t keep trying to find the perfect match for us.

How about you? Is your household filled with history buffs or do you struggle, like me, to bring history to life for your kids?
