I am trying to be more prepared this year...so I am planning our history right now. We are using SOTW as a spine...but I think my kids are too old for it, so I need additional resources. I also want to have documentaries, etc for the this year (last year while doing ancients and even medieval there was sex in EVERYTHING so we didn't get to watch a lot of documentaries that went along with what we were learning).

So I'm ready for all your ideas! My kids are 11 and almost 12...entering 6th and 7th grades.

I also got the Joy Hakim series, A History of US; The Story of Mankind, by Hendrik Willem van Loon; The American Story by Jennifer Armstrong; and U.S. History through Children's Literature: From the Colonial Period to World War II, by Wanda Miller.  Check out my Pinterest history board, it's not large:

We are doing more ebooks this year. We are in the same boat. We are studying famous scientists, inventors and mathematicians.

I am sure some of them are found in book format as well. I found an awesome book on michael faraday. My main text is famous men of rome,greece, middle and the modern age. I am also writing a history adventure story. I also found a good book on archimedes and the periodic table.
