Welcome to Guest Hollow's American History Curriculum Year 2!
This free American history supplement / curriculum / program was originally written for the target grades of 2-8. In the future I may add in more components for high school (and additional "meat" for jr. high). It could possibly make an excellent supplement to any other American history curriculum (for a variety of ages) with plenty of "gravy" like worksheets, printables, links, extra reading, crafts, videos, lapbooks, activities and more.

Programs this schedule would be a good supplement for (in my opinion) are Sonlight, WinterPromise, Veritas, Ambelside, My Father's World and any other literature rich curriculum.
American History 2 is what I'm wrote for my son to use and I’m sharing it with you in honor of the multitude of blessings God has bestowed on my family. I don't make ANY claims about it. I've provided a downloadable version of our schedule below that is free to anyone who wants to check it out . Although this study is secular, you could easily add in any Christian textbooks or literature. I also may add some book notes & study guides that reflect our family's Christian beliefs, in the future.
Our free homeschool American history curriculum uses a literature and activity approach. I've worked hard to include a variety of materials and extras like lapbooks, videos, interactive websites, different types of books (visual, novels, fiction, non-fiction, picture books, comic books), songs, and other resources.

If you don't have Microsoft Word, you can download the FREE Open Office program and use that instead.

NOTE: This curriculum has a huge buffet of activities and books scheduled in. There is NO way you will get to it all. Pick and choose what you think is appropriate for your family time and interest wise.
