Home School In The Woods Time Travelers U.S. History Studies WW ll {Review}

With products like World War II from the Time Travelers U.S. History Studies, Home School in the Woods makes it easy to add hands on history to our studies.

Time Travelers have generally about 25 lessons, which are generally meant to be about a week long. As always, we choose to spread them out longer because there are some special needs issuse involved, making it easier to be sure my boys are actually learning as opposed to just rushing to get it done.

Here is a short video for you to watch about the studies:

This study covers more than a decade of major events which changed the world forever, such as the rise of Adolph Hitler and his NAZIs, and the occupations of Gemany, Italy and Japan. We also have been learning about different battles and conflicts, about the Holocaust and what the Americans did “on the home front,” from victory gardens to rationing and much more!

While the first Home School In The Woods product we reviewed was confusing for me at first, once I learned how to navigate between the downloaded files I got it down, so each subsequent study has been easy to get ready for my kids!

It is fairly simple to use the files once they are downloaded. This is what I see when I click on the pdf’s, which is what I prefer to use throughout:

  • Covers
  • Lesson – Masters
  • Lesson – Projects
  • Lesson – Text
  • Teacher – Keys

While there is a lesson plan which you can print out:

We chose to do things in our own order, beginning with the timeline and some of the lapbook projects. This timeline runs eleven sheets of card stock. It begins with The Treaty of Versailles and the creation of the National Socialist German Workers Party {NAZI}, and continues all the way through the Berlin Airlift which went from June 24, 1948 until May 12, 1949. The timeline goes into the notebook, which is pictures at the top of this review.

I like to print out the Lesson – Projects pdf one lesson at a time to give to my son, along with the Master for that lesson. He can then follow along with the project page for the instructions on what to do, and he has the master to use for the work itself.

One of the project pages:

Here, he is working on a penmanship page before crossing it off the instruction page as completed.

The whole thing is so easy once you figure out your personal favorite way to use this, and get started with your kids! Here, you can see a whole bunch of what “The Artist” has been doing!

The BEST thing about this was that when “The Artist” was working on the timeline, he started to ask his Dad questions about the events he was putting into it. After asking me if it was OK to answer, he began giving “The Artist” even more information about the different things he was learning about, which helps his dad to be involved with him in his learning.

There are numerous blog posts on the Home School In The Woods site like this one.

This study is just as much fun, and as interesting as all of the other ones from Home School In The Woods that we have worked with. You can see what we thought of them by going here!
