America - The Story of US



 I love it when I get good things in the mail. It's even better when it's FREE things in the mail! I received something today that I forgot I ever requested. "America, The Story of Us" is a 12 hour mini-series DVD set from the History Channel and covers 400 years of history. We watched some of it today, and I was very impressed with the quality and content. My children were riveted. Unfortunately, this 3 DVD set is no longer free to schools or home schools although the video is still available to purchase.

There are some freebies on History.com though such as the Ultimate History Quiz which can be played online and many PDF files that can be downloaded and saved such as a Teacher's Guide ,  a Classroom Activity Guidea Classroom Study Guide, and a Family Viewing Guide. Full-text can be found HERE and video clips can be found HERE.

America, The Story of US can also be purchased and downloaded on iTunes.

I think my kids are actually looking forward to their History lesson tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by from the blog hop. I'm following you back. Your blog looks like a great one! Can't wait to spend more time 'getting to know' a fellow homeschooler.
