It’s that time of year again…the time where my wishlist is bursting and finally books and resources are being moved from the wishlist to the shopping cart and what follows after that is pure happiness as all these inspiring supplies start trickling in. Since all our supplies didn’t come in at once, you can click the links below for the other homeschool hauls for the start of this year. And as always, you can check out the units that these materials are for. For more info the materials we purchased using our homeschool educational funding, you can check out the blog post on my website that accompanies this video where you’ll find pictures of all the materials we got as well links to my favorite vendors.

I love picture book biographies! Here’s a video of several female role models in science and more.
When putting together a history (and units in general) unit, I look for books/resources in the following topic areas:
History (famous people, timeline history, historical events)
Biographies (picture books work great for biographies)
Geography (a single atlas book does fine)
Historical fiction (a great way to get your history/culture in a fun book)
Culture/food/clothing (cook up a dish from the time period)
Audio books/songs (music from the time period is fun to listen to)
Projects/Activities (pre-made kits are a go-to staple around here)
Games (Professor Noggins are our favorite)
Workbooks (use sparingly or skip and do narrations)
Picture books (surprisingly informative & fun)
Activity and project books (Lauri Carlson has several)
Science/math (adding other subjects rounds out your unit)
