- Many families in the colonies and during pioneer
days "home schooled" their children. In present day, even though there
are established public schools, some families are returning to home
schooling. One family has dubbed their home school -- "Home School in
the Woods" and has developed several units of study. Visit their "Civil
War" unit pages for some fresh ideas on getting your learners involved
in a study of the Civil War. Many good books are suggested, great ideas
for creating a time line, using a homemade journal, and writing. Check it out.
