Hands-On Ancient History with Project Passport

     In all of our history of homeschooling, which comes to a total of about six years (Wow! How did that even happen!) we have focused primarily on American History. If I'm going to be honest with you, it's because that is simply what is in my comfort zone. It's a far smaller span of time to study than the ancient civilizations, and in all honesty, it's what I learned the most about in my education. However, we are certainly coming to the end of our American history lessons, and as my kids get older they become more fascinated and curious about other areas of the world. So I think it's safe to say it's time to revamp our history curriculum to give them a broader view of the world around us!

    We have done a lot of dry curriculum. I really wanted to try something different. My kids are very hands-on learners, which is why so many of our curriculum choices work so well! However, I'm not great at planning and putting things into words myself, and need a good curriculum that's capable of basically drawing it all out for me. I love it when it takes the work away and tells me exactly what to do. Especially with multiple homeschoolers on different grade levels, it's important that I have enough time to dedicate to each learner. So this is what I was looking for as I began my search for some sort of world history program.
