FREE American History Curriculum

I know. I don't have any kids in High school or junior high. But, as you can probably tell from my blog name, we find American history to be among the most important things our children will ever learn. So as soon as I heard about this new program, I was excited, even though we won't be able to use it.

And I LOVE the name. Raising Refounders.... Exactly
what I am striving to do. This is a free curriculum for grades 7-12, all about the founding fathers, first presidents and early American history.

Semester one is covers "The New World", Christopher Columbus, etc. Semester two is now available, about Roanoke. However, there are also studies on several founding fathers available, including printables, reading material and activities. There are even downloads for each of the 50 states with worksheets and maps.

There is also a page just for historical videos, which is a great resource on its own! No more searching through YouTube for the few treasures in the rubble. And, no more having your kids reading the vile comments left under almost all YouTube videos. Now, you can watch them from the Raising Refounders site!

This website is produced by the great people at Simple Schooling. If you haven't seen their materials, you should head over there, too. They have a huge selection, and they give away a free unit study each month!


  1. Can I just say... YOU ROCK!!!

    We are doing American History with both my high schoolers this year and I was having a hard time figuring out the budget. This is right up our alley. My husband and sons loved the name of the curriculum!

    Thank you so much!!!!!

  2. What a great website. Thank you so much for sharing. I should be able to slide this into the History curriculum that I've already decided on for my boys.
