History Planning is not scary!

Now don't get all scared at my plans for history. I know it was a lot but I am still working on it. Look what I have so far. I've added movies and magazine articles. This doesn't mean we are doing it all just that it is there if I decide to do one thing or another. I am still not finished though.

This gives you an idea as to how my crazy brain works in trying to get our next school year planned. I still need to look into some books to read and add in some field trips. It would not be any fun unless there were field trips, right? Then there are some more people in history that I would like to go over.

Like I said this is a work in whatcha think so far?
