History is NOT one of my favorite subjects to teach. I don't do well at remembering all the fine details of our history. That's why I'm glad Home School in The Woods was created. We've been loving this hands-on history program from Home School in the Woods called HISTORY Through the Ages Project Passport World History Study: Renaissance & Reformation. It makes learning and memorizing the aspects of history much easier.
About HISTORY Through the Ages Project Passport World History Study: Renaissance & Reformation

We have been blessed to review other Homeschool in the Woods projects in the past, and we were thrilled to have the chance to do it again with this set. Last time Jimmy was the main one who got to do it. This time Delbert took the reigns with Momma. Momma is a crafty person and LOVES doing these trips with the kids. She has a way of truly making the kids feel like they are at these places while they make the unit studies for each stop.
This kit makes it simple to complete lap books for each stop because the directions are clear and easy to follow. Everything is well organized and marked. It takes about an hour to two hours to make each lap book. Some of them take a bit longer because the creative minds in our family tend to expand in the directions they are given.
One of the things that I love about these products is the fact that my kids get to make their own little lap books filled with things that interested them the most from these bits of history. In my mind, it allows them to have a sense of belonging during those timeframes. It definitely has helped them to remember all of the things they've learned about those periods of history. It is almost like scrapbooking their way through history.
I would highly recommend that you use this with your kids. It will give them something to look forward to doing. I have to admit it's just as much fun for the adults as it is for the kids. It is affordable and provides an 8-12 weeks worth of lessons to do. It is something they can keep and showcase to others too. It also helps create lasting memories too of the time spent in making these projects with them.
