30+ Favorite Resources for Teaching History (& Geography)

 General - These resources will come in handy no matter what curriculum or method you use.
  • Timeline Helps from Homeschool in the Woods. How to use timelines, inspiration, lots of resources both for purchase and free.
  • Hyper History. An online timeline resource. 
  • Notebooking Pages. Free and paid printables. The free section includes many that are great for enhancing history: biography pages, famous missionary pages, timelines, and geography printables.
  • ClipArt Etc. Lots of printable images, including Ancient History, American History, Places, Military and many more.
  • Online review quizzes for History and Geography are available at Quizlet. (Plus many other subjects!)
  • Free History lapbooks and unit studies from Tina's Dynamic Homeschool.
People - Use these resources for timelines, notebooking, or making your own lapbooks
The Story of the World - This is our history "Spine" in our homeschool. We love the books, the activity guides, and the audio by Jim Weiss. But there are so many more resources to go along with a 4 year history cycle. Here are a few favorites
U.S. History - I know there are many more resources for teaching U.S. History (libraries are overflowing with this sort of thing) but here are a few I've used in recent years
Don't miss all the great resources from Notebooking Pages. They have a lot of free pages, as well as subscription options. (affiliate link)
