In lower grades, it can be called Social Studies. In upper grades, we call it History.
How is it taught in homeschool?
Like other subjects, history can be taught any number of ways. It all depends on the goals for the year and the style of homeschooling being used.
Below, you’ll find a list of some of the more commonly used history products found in the homeschooling marketplace*. Start with these to get some ideas and then find some on your own.
Note that history books may be written from a biblical perspective, or not. Choose the approach you like best.
Remember that some homeschooling families also use standard school textbooks to teach history. You can read more about homeschooling using texts HERE.
* Note that some social studies/history materials include geography and some do not. Therefore, geography products will be covered in a separate post.
