Free Charlotte Mason/living books/hands-on History Curriculum: Year Three, Term Two of Three

**Updated 5/21/13**

Good morning!

Below you'll find the link for the second of the three terms for the History plans I intend to use next year with my kids.  This one begins in 1675 during King Philip's War and goes through the American Constitution.  As before, I've used lots of different free resources to put this together including book lists from Sonlight, My Father's World, the SOTW/HOTUS list on Redshift, and others.

The Hands-on History books referenced in this document are constantly on sale at the Scholastic Teacher Express site during the Dollar Days so if you don't already own them, watch for another sale and grab them! They are awesome!

I've also included Liberty's Kids in this plan.  Liberty's Kids is a cartoon available on You Tube.  They actually have a channel that you can subscribe to and watch the episodes (broken up into 2 10-minute parts). They are all great episodes, but I've only included a handful of them here.  If your kids love them, feel free to watch them all!

Finally, I've linked you to the timeline we'll be using and making here at our house.  There are TONS of free ones all over the internet so if you don't like this one, try out a different one! I know the notebooking fairy (here: www.notebookingfairy.com/ ) has some great notebooking pages that serve as timelines.  Simply Charlotte Mason has a free Book of Centuries here: http://simplycharlottemason.com/store/basic-book-of-centuries/

If you see any issues or have any questions, please feel free to leave me a comment.  :)  I'll try to get the third term up tomorrow, possibly as late as next week, but it's coming! Have a great day everyone!

ETA: One other note, if you have access to Schoolhouse Rock (and there are some videos on You Tube), those are excellent for this as well! "The shot heard round the world" and "The Great American Melting Pot" are a couple that come to mind!

Also, I thought you all might be interested in some of the videos from the History Channel on the revolution:http://www.history.com/search?q=america+the+story+of+us+revolution&x=-1109&y=-148
