I love using living books for history studies in our homeschool. What are living books? Real books, not textbooks!
Here are some of the great books we’ve read (or will read) for our history studies of 1865-1939, Industrial Revolution Through Great Depression.
Our main curriculum has been Homeschool in the Woods. See Civil War lapbook pictures here and Industrial Revolution through Great Depression lapbook here.
We’ve listened to Story of the World, volume 4 while driving in the car.
The Great Wheel by Robert Lawson, about the Ferris Wheel in Chicago
The Wright Brothers and Their Sister by Lois Mills, about the invention of the first airplane
