Curriculum Review | American History


I knew we weren’t going to get through all the history units we planned, but by this point, I certainly expected to get through more. We didn’t complete all our units in part because I kept adding to them and in part because I overpacked these units to begin with. No worries. I’ll just carry over these units into the following year and pick them back up in the winter.

I do have this curriculum review to share with you as well as audio samples of the CDs we used for this unit and our Colonial Times Unit study. At the end of the video you can also see what my 5th grader’s main lesson book looks like.

If you want to see the projects we did for this unit, you can watch the playlist.

  1. Hello I was wondering if you used any workbooks for questions and answers regarding what you have taught or if it’s mainly based on narration.

  2. Love this! I’m a new homeschooling mom and need ideas. My boys all voted for American history so this is very helpful. Love your channel

  3. I love all your book reviews!!! Trying to plan American history lessons for next year (for a 1st & 2nd grader). I am no history buff. Can you please recommend a good spine that overviews American history as a guide for me to use as inspiration for more living books? We plan to use all of Betsy Maestro’s books in the American series.

  4. Hi Hana,

    First of all I just want to commend you on the wonderful job you are doing, and for introducing me to Waldorf. It’s really is inspiring.

    I just wanted to ask how do you know which subject to teach,is it child led or do you losely follow the state curriculum? Also I am concerned as its heavily in craft skills and I have no experience with the craft and I am nit very artistic. How do I go about this, can I leave the crafts bit completely.
