Anyone make their own literature based history and science?


Recommended Posts

In the elementary years, I tend to teach via units, and within units I pull in a lot of literature relating to the topic at hand. In the internet age, it's only gotten easier to do so though you'll still need to do some legwork.


Just start doing Googles on specific topical units and see what literature is suggested within it.

I always start by choosing a spine.


For our history next year (middle ages), I am going to be using Usborne World History and 100 Most Important Events in Church History and will just line them up chronologically.


For science next year (earth science/ astronomy) I chose Visual Factfinders for our spine.


As far as finding books to go along with the subject, science is pretty easy to just look up in our library's catalog.


For history, I find the best resource to be All Through the Ages- it is priceless! In fact, if you wanted to just use literature and no spine you could easily do it using this book.


I will post what I have put together to my blog when I am finished- I am getting close with science:)
