Jenny in Florida Posted June 30, 2008 Share Posted June 30, 2008 So, I'm absolutely determined that we will have "output" to put in the history section of my son's notebook next year. He hates to write, and it had gotten to be a huge bone of contention. So, I cut way, way back on the amout of writing I required this past year. Basically, he wrote something for English about once every three weeks, plus a couple of book reports and that was about it. We are going to tackle the writing thing next year with Classical Writing. But I expect it will still be quite a trudge, and I don't want to heep on history narrations and outlining and all that stuff. Nonetheless, I want pages for that notebook. So, I went through all the workbooks and activity books I have sitting on my shelves from previous years or that people have given us. And it occured to me that I could assign him one or two pages of fill-in-the-blank or activity-type worksheets each week. That would give us something to show for history for the year and start putting us on the path to doing more written work for that subject, right? Unfortunately, I have big, gaping holes in terms of what I have on hand. Ancient Greece? Ancient Rome? Ancient Egypt? Covered and then some. I absolutely refuse to spend any more money on curriculum. So, I'm now looking for freebies. I need things to cover these topics: -Prehistory/Ice Age -Mayan Civilization -Ancient China -Ancient India I'm dead sure that there are websites out there that have exactly what I'm looking for, but I can't find them.
