I have 6 children, two I am homeschooling. Oldest 32,29,25,21,18,13.
History is the how we primarily homeschool. 18 years ago We studied Egypt and still have the hieroglyphics to prove it:) the visual memories of reading and occasionally creating costumes or swords, whatever the time period is there for life. And geography goes right along painlessly.
