History is my FAVORITE. I love to linger on events and time periods, give me a good historical fiction novel and I will loose myself in it for days. When a story is told well, it captures your attention and draws you in. Enter Dave Stotts. We have been immersed in early American History for the last 6 weeks through the new Drive Thru History Adventures. Our host Dave has taken us on a virtual fieldtrip right into battlefields and homes of figures like Paul Revere and William Penn. We have laughed hysterically at his antics and gained a deep understanding and appreciation for the people that founded our great country.
The American History Curriculum has 12 episodes, each about 27 minutes long. The curriculum will move you from the discovery of our nation through the Revolutionary war. With each episode you will be introduced to the people and places where the events took place. You will walk along with Dave into historical buildings, battle grounds and other famous places, all the while learning fun and interesting facts.
I think this curriculum can easily stand on it’s own, especially if you are adding some novels or other readings to it. Or it could be used as a supplement to something you are already doing.
The online subscription gives you access to all the videos and readings along with the curriculum. With your subscription you also receive access to Adventures TV. With Adventures TV, at the touch of a button (or phone screen) you can stream over 40 videos and counting. This can be downloaded and streamed through any device.
Drive Thru History Adventures Gets a Big Thumbs Up from Us
This curriculum has so much to offer. It does all the work for you. Whenever we study a subject, I’m at the library looking for books, I’m downloading videos or checking them out, writing up discussion questions and finding worksheets or projects to go along with what we are doing. This curriculum does all the hard parts for you. Unless you like projects… sorry Dave doesn’t do those.
