Videos are such a fun way to introduce or explore new topics. For visual learners videos can be the key to understanding complex concepts. With the freedom that homeschool gives us we can explore any topic that our kids find interesting instead of having to stick to a rigid set of standards. That way our kids are happy to learn and we're happy to discuss complex topics with our soon-to-be-adults! Jen and I have discussed some of our favorite videos from Amazon Prime that we use to teach social history. Here they are in no particular order! Hope you find a new teaching tool your teen loves!
The men who built america
How we got to now
Jonestown: paradise lost
We hope you found a new must-watch video among our favorites! We have used these videos for homeschool kids in grades 8-12, it really depends on what the teen is interested in and their learning style. Follow our blog for more teaching tools and lessons that we use this year with our homeschoolers!
