Day 2 - History Curriculum

Good Evening to my fellow Australian friends and good morning to my round the world friends welcome to the Schoolhouse Review Crew 5 days of ... blog hop.

The theme for my 5 days is Curriculum Choices. My aim is not to list every single resource out there (That in itself would be almost impossible as the Internet is an ever changing place). My aim is to give you some ideas to start you off.

Today's theme is History.
My personal passion is teaching/learning history chronologically. My reason for this is that dates help us to anchor our learning. I loved the stories of history from school and loved even more seeing the cause and effect of history but hated memorizing dates. My love affair with history grew when I started home educating.

drawing the materials of future wisdom 
from the past errors and infirmities of mankind.
