Looking for good online homeschool HISTORY videos & more
« on: March 22, 2022, 07:22:12 PM »
I'm looking for some decent history videos that teach history to kids in 5th grade and up. 

I'm also looking for, perhaps, some online curricula that you folks might recommend.  For example, I just stumbled on a site called ixl  (https://www.ixl.com/), but I don't know if it's a good program.  Don't want my kids bein' taught sodomy, critical race theory, or anything like that.


Anyone have any good recommendations?

"Silence is complicity."  -Me

"The most evident mark of God's anger, and the most terrible castigation He can inflict upon the world, is manifest when He permits His people to fall into the hands of a clergy who are more in name than in deed, priests who practice the cruelty of ravening wolves rather than the charity and affection of devoted shepherds. They abandon the things of God to devote themselves to the things of the world and, in their saintly calling of holiness, they spend their time in profane and worldly pursuits. When God permits such things, it is a very positive proof that He is thoroughly angry with His people and is visiting His most dreadful wrath upon them."

You can try this enterprise. It might be a bit advanced for elementary aged pupils.

This is mandatory for a 12 year old plus boys:

Thanks, Heinrich.

I'm looking for general world history, American, Greek, Roman---all of it.  But this site you recommended looks good, to be sure, and I'll add it to the pot.

For differentiation try some of these:

Wordwall
Blooket
Kahoot
Quizzes

You can register as a teacher free of charge and create your own engagements, or use what others have shared.
