8th grade history resources

History is one of those wonderful subjects that can be transformed from dusty old facts into a living and breathing study. To make that transformation, we simply need to find the right information and tools. It isn't always easy to just purchase a new homeschool curriculum. Sure we would love to, right? But sometimes, for one reason or another, the money just isn't there. What do we do?

Well, don't despair making your own curriculum isn't all that difficult, it just takes a bit more extra time. Start with an outline of what material you want to cover during the interval of the course. Once you have a chronological sequence to your outline, you can begin to put bones on it. Depending, of course, on what materials you already have at home, you can pull a lot of your resources for free off of the web.

Here are a few examples.
