We LOVE Home School in the Woods here in this house! We have been blessed by SO many different things from them, that I can't even begin to choose a favorite. This time around, we were blessed with World War II from their Time Travelers U.S. History Studies. In this series you'll find:



Home School in the Woods offers so much! You can also find world history in their Project Passport World History Studies, work on a timeline with Timeline Collection: A collection of Historical Timeline Figures, or do a shorter activity that targets a particular topic like the U.S. Elections Lap-Pak, which we have used in the past!  



As I said before, we have been blessed with so many products to review, and I have purchased several on my own, as well. Home School in the Woods is a true favorite for us!
 
 
 
How We Used This:
 
Mr. B is REALLY into World War II right now. He watched a documentary on TV, and that did it for him. He was on a mission to learn as much as he could, and he officially knows a LOT more than me on the subject. I knew this would be a set he would love and be excited to use. Wow! Was I ever right! He has enjoyed this so much!  

The first thing I did was print out, and hole punch, everything. I did not separate what needed to be printed on card stock. I use the printed one as my master copy, and copy it onto card stock as needed. This way, I can organize everything together in a binder for easier lesson planning. I also make sure to set aside basic supplies I know will be needed such as glue, glue sticks, colored pencils, markers, gel pens, scissors, and the like. That way, all we have to do is pull out the supply basket, and we're set! A few projects sometimes require other items, so I try to be prepared and read ahead to make sure we are set before starting. 

Mr. B has loads of books dedicated to WWII, but Home School in the Woods also includes reading lists, which I LOVE! We paired some of our favorites, along with the included text readings to make a really well rounded study. I don't always print off the text pages now. I used to print EVERYTHING, but now I don't. I usually leave the directions for each lesson and the text pages on the PC so that Mr. B can read on his own, or so that I can pull it up quickly and assist as needed. You can easily make a book of sorts by printing all of the text, and hole punching it. I used to also put that into page protectors for added oomph, but it's not 100% necessary at all! Now, I tend to save on the paper and only print the PDFs for the lesson pages. 


Here is a screen snip of what the text lessons look like. Even the text pages look like works of art! 



 
 
Mr. B insisted a show this quote. He said, correctly so, that anything can become a truth if enough people believe it. That's a very important lesson to learn-a fact and the truth can be two different things depending on what one chooses to believe, whether it is right or false...


Overall, we love Home School in the Woods. We have never had a product we didn't love, and haven't used more than once in some fashion. We have even used activities during birthday parties! Kids just LOVE doing these! Ok, I admit it, I LOVE doing these!
