Wednesdays Around the World: A History and Geography Link-Up, came from my love of the history curriculum that I am using. I started using Mystery of History in the fall of 2011 and immediately fell in love it it. History has always been a favorite subject of mine, but I loved how it was written and put together by Linda Lacour Hobar. I then started using the Illuminations program from Bright Ideas Press, who also publishes the Mystery of History. They also have some great Geography curriculum that they publish as well. The more my kids and I did the lessons with the projects and activities, the more I wanted to share with everyone else what we were learning. That got me to thinking about doing a history link-up for those who love and use any of the Bright Ideas Press curriculum that they publish. I contacted a couple of people I know from there and told them about my idea. They loved it! While they love my idea and support me on this, they do not have anything to do with the link-up. I am doing this on my own with their blessings!
Who can link-up to Wednesdays Around the World? Anyone who is using the history, geography or WonderMaps curriculum that is published by Bright Ideas Press. This includes Mystery of History (all volumes), All American History, WonderMaps, The Ultimate Geography and Timeline Guide, Hands-On Geography, Cantering the Country and Galloping the Globe.
If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me. I want this to be a fun learning experience for everyone!
If you have started school and have a lesson, activity or project that you want to link up, I would love to see it as I am sure others do, as well! Grab the button (although it is not mandatory) and just follow the instructions on the link-up.
