Do you desire to teach your children through living books, especially if you are using the Charlotte Mason way to educate your family? If so, you may not know where to look or what options are available for you, so I decided to create a list of American history learning resources for families with all ages.

The Ultimate List of American History Learning Resources - Teach your children about American History through resources they will love! |

The Ultimate List of American History Learning Resources

We started our homeschool journey in 1999, and in all of those years, we have used either living books or resources that have the living book feel. Our children have all grown loving history and learning about people and events in different eras in our American history and world history.

As with any of my book list, age and grade levels should be determined by each family. 

Here are DVD resources for the founding of American history:
