History Plans

Jackie over at commented on my last post and thought I would share how my planning is going with in history. I have always liked The Well Trained Mind because it gives you an idea on how to get your "stuff" together for each subject. I love the lists they have for history. I have a list going on what we will study this coming year. The only part I have finished is the beginning. I am using the History Pockets of Colonial America that you can get at any bookstore. It reminds me of lapbooking and notebooking together. The best of both worlds in my opinion. Anyway, this is my list. Keep in mind that it is not finished. Only the first part is done and we will probably spend 3 or 4 weeks on that. I will include Netflix movies and maybe a book or two. There are also some magazine articles I need to work on getting in there.

The rest of my list is in the making. I have to put events together with people in history and probably delete some things.

Do you have any ideas for me? Suggestions are welcome. *wink*
