 We are going to use the Magic Tree House books unless I decide to go with a charter school after all.  There are lesson plans on their website.  I also just found this website, though I have not looked into it to much.

You may be able to teach both grades with the same work.

We're not doing history in K. But for 1st-4th we'll be using Story of the World.

Story of the World.  My kids like the activites.  I like that it's bible based, and can be used to teach multiple grades at the same time.

All American History for the past couple of of years (4th and 5th grade). I wanted a good American History Curriculum for my son. Next year we're using Abeka and Story of the World to begin World History.




It looks like the one that wants to take the wanting suddenly wants

to be wanted by a different wanting that hasn't wanted wanting that has

never wanted for the sake of want-ness, eh?

I use the History channel website and Story of the World. The History channel site is nice for adding in videos, and especially useful for teaching about non-religious holidays (Labor Day, President's Day, etc...).

 I've got a 5th grader, but I use Oak Meadow.  I love their history.  It's hands on, and the history and language arts are all tied in together, so everything just flows together.

We are not using a curriculum for history. I am letting her devise what she is interested in for now. She is only 5. At the moment we are looking at the civil war and she chose it all on her own.

Story of the World (main)

Hillyer's A Child's History of the World (as a supplement)

Lots of videos and interactives online and from the library. Also have the Usborne Encyclopedia of World History.
