Did you know that learning about history can actually be pretty fun?
Well it can! We have been playing some of the file folder games from Home School in the Woods. They now offer many of their hands-on history projects Á La Carte.
Journey Through the Middle Ages
The first game we used was Journey Through the Middle Ages. It comes as a neatly organized pdf file with full instructions on what supplies will be needed, how to print the pages (some are better to print on card stock) and how to assemble them.
The more we played the game, the more they started to remember the answers. It’s a really neat way to learn history trivia while feeling like play!
Both children asked to play again and again. They enjoyed the friendly competition between the two of them, and I enjoyed that they were learning something!
The next item we chose was Mercenary Madness! It is also a file folder style game, with the setup instructions being fairly similar to the first game. Print, color, cut and paste.
More fun while learning about history!
Home School in the Woods has many other Á La Carte items available on their website. They range in price from $1.95 to $9.95, which is quite an affordable way to add a little fun to your studies if you ask me.
Of course we weren’t able to try them all for this review, but there are a couple of other ones that look really fun that I might like to try out in the future.
The Jamestown Replica would be so much fun for any young builder in your family.
