Homeschool History Without the Stress
History is a subject that can sometimes fall on the back burner, it takes a lot of work to gather the information that will bring a history lesson to life. Doing the research, finding reputable links and information on topics takes time and planning. I recently found this amazing resource that helps me plan our homeschool history without stress. Before we begin, take a moment to pin this post to your Homeschool board.

Making Homeschool History Simple
I would spend hours searching the internet looking for videos, books, articles, photos, and audio that went with a history lesson we were doing, to make it more engaging for my children. It took forever! Recently my kids and I decided to dig deep into Black History for February and this meant having to navigate a lot of sensitive material. While I have a pile of amazing children’s books that help celebrate Black History, sometimes we needed to dig deeper. I was so happy that I had the Homeschool History membership powered by Notgrass History in my back pocket.
What is Homeschool History Membership?
Homeschool History membership is an annual membership that provides access to a searchable database of hundreds of books, videos, audio resources, and historic sites! You can plan your homeschool lessons from this database alone without having to navigate questionable youtube videos, Pinterest, and various websites. You can find resources by topic, time period, and geographical location.
Homeschool History Membership is the perfect addition for all homeschoolers:
- It is affordable! With a 30-day free trial available for everyone to try, the membership only costs $24 for the whole year!
- The content on the site is reputable, checked for quality and appropriateness.
- There is even a section titled Homeschool History Top Picks which means that they have carefully reviewed this material and it comes highly recommended.
How to get started with a Homeschool History Membership
It is really simple to get started with Homeschool History, all you have to do is visit their site and sign up! No credit card required! That means you don’t have to worry about forgetting to cancel.
Once you are in, you can begin to search whatever topics you need to plan or begin studying. As I said, this month we focused on Black History so I chose a few keywords to try out, settling on Black Americans as my ultimate search keyword. Links flowed from this search which consisted of:
- Audio files
- Historic Sites (Some of which have virtual tours)
- Videos (with suggestions on where to find them, for example, many videos can be found on youtube but they even have Amazon Prime suggestions as well)
Since we were reading about Jesse Owen’s and the Olympics we decided to dig deeper with this video as well as into some other resources about Jim Crow Laws.
We have found so many great resources using the Homeschool History Membership in such a short time, I would love to list all the amazing resources we have found just for our topic this month but then you will miss out on your very own quest for homeschool history resources.
