Home school Social Studies Units

As the blog continues to grow I want to make sure that you are able to find all the great home school resources from years past! So here is a list of all our fun Social Studies Units for you to browse through. I will continue to add to update this page frequently.

Each Unit has recommended books, activities, creative ideas, and free printables to go along. Most of my Social Studies units contain a free lapbook.
