Free American History
As a 2nd year member of the TOS Homeschool Crew, I have been given the wonderful opportunity to review many homeschool products over the next several months. The only compensation that I receive for my review is the free product. I feel truly blessed to be participating in this review group and I'm looking forward to trying out more products and giving you my honest opinion.
I'm writing to tell you about a COMPLETELY FREE American History Resource valued at over $150!! What is it exactly?
Well, the American Heritage Education Foundation is...
"a non-profit, non-partisan educational foundation dedicated to the understanding and teaching of America's factual and philosophical heritage to promote constructive citizenship and Freedom, Unity, Progress, and Responsibility among our students and citizens."
AHEF has produced American History lesson plans for students in grades K-12 and distributes them to teachers and families all over the United States. You can either download these lessons plans from the AHEF website or request a free CD-Rom.
Lessons are separated for the Elementary, Middle School, and High School levels and are in PDF format. You'll find that this is not a complete curriculum, but a supplement. However, there is still 184 pages of elementary lessons alone! These lessons are divided into 2 units a month. Units include:
Declaration of Independence
The Statue of Liberty
And many more!
The units are mostly suggested activities, games,and printables to use to enhance your studies. Activities are geared towards a classroom setting, so many would need to be modified to fit the homeschooling family.
So what do I think? We will be definitely be referring to this CD often as we continue our American History studies this year. Not to mention...it's free! Why haven't you downloaded it already??!
