American History Resources

This year, we are moving from Ancient History to American History. With the 150 anniversary of the Civil War and our recent trip to Silver Dollar City, it was a good time to switch focus in social studies.

Two of the best resources I have found so far are “The History of US” series written by Joy Hakim and  Cobblestone Magazine. In addition to a year-long subscription, we have gone back and purchase numerous back issues. Each issue has well-researched and accessible articles, time lines, primary sources, and maps. Both resources are rich with history and do not dumb down the content just because of a younger target audience.
