TJE's This Week In History: A Review


As part of the Schoolhouse Review Crew, I was excited to be chosen to review This Week In History--a resource of A Thomas Jefferson Education.  Being the history buff that I am, and working very hard to pass that love on to my children, I enjoy finding things that make history fun.

This Week In History is a daily feature that brings history alive for you family, your homeschool or your classroom.  Your subscription to this feature includes lessons in social studies, current events, math, geography, the arts, language--all tied into a particular date in history.  

When you subscribe you will receive an email once a week filled with that week's worth of events in history--and all the links you need to get you off on your learning adventure.  You can also access those weekly posts on their website anytime, including all of the past postings.  It truly is a very rich resource.  

For instance, this past week alone brought us the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Missouri, Herbert Hoover, Morse Code, T-Rex Sue, Annie Oakley, Social Security, and Silly Putty, just to name a few!  And each topic leads you to more interesting side topics with links to related information, printables and more. 

These daily posts from history are the perfect way to engage your children and students, keeping them interested and learning.  Even though we don't school with our regular schedule through the summer, this is the perfect way to continue learning each day.  View three weeks of sample posts here to see what this could add to your family's learning experience.

It's also inexpensive at just $9.99 a month--that's about .33 a day.  That's a great investment especially if you're wanting to create more interest in history.  This really brings history to life!
