Weblink Wednesday - U.S. History




My son absolutely loves US History, and politics. Seriously, the other day out of the blue he asked me if I knew who the 13th president was. Do you know? He isn't a well known president. I had no idea took a guess and was very wrong. He was quick to inform me it was Millard Fillmore.(Remember - He's 8!) He loves to vote and "votes" in every election with a sample ballot. All the old ladies who volunteer at the polling places think is it adorable. We are using the A Beka history series for his social studies and have fallen in love with it. To add to all he is learning in his social study books, I like to find extras that go along with what we are studying. For this week's Weblink Wednesday I am sharing three US history sites that I have found.

America's Christian History
Ben's Guide to U.S. Govenrment
The Presidents House

  1. I stopped by this morning and took a look at your links, but didn't leave a message. Now I am making my rounds to thank each and every one of you for participating in Weblink Wednesday today. You did a great job choosing a link to share. Just to let you know, on April 1st, I will be debuting a special website called Weblink Education where all these links will be available in ONE place. Hurray.

    Have a great day!
