Drive Thru History Adventures is quite possibly the best thing to happen to our homeschool this year. The kids look forward to Dave (with all his quirky humor) and his adventures around the world and through time.
Bringing History to Life with Drive Thru History Adventures
Drive Thru History Adventures has three online courses.
- Bible History (18 weeks on the Gospels)
- American History (12 weeks on early American history)
- Ancient History (12 weeks on early Greece, Rome, and Asia Minor)
In each weekly lesson (or Adventure) we watched a video, did some reading and answered some questions. We learned history together while exploring the world from our couch and recliners. And of course, in true Drive Thru History fashion, Dave worked in some geography, archaeology, and classic art.
Because my teenage daughter is doing American History this year, we focused on the American History videos. We watched the videos together a couple times a week. To be honest, all of my school age kids looked forward to the videos. In fact, they asked for them every. single. day. Yes, they’re that good. Check out this introductory video below.
Do you see what I mean? They’re excellent! The videos are full of adventure and excitement. It’s like you’re taking the ultimate guided tour around the world from the comfort of your couch.
After we watched a video, we’d go over the discussion questions to see who remembered what. I also asked some opened ended questions like everyone’s favorite parts or maybe something they found surprising. There’s also some suggested reading that coincides with the videos. The material is easily found on the website.
I’m super thankful that we will have access to the videos for a while so we won’t run out of videos to watch anytime soon. The kids are learning about history in a memorable and engaging way. Drive Thru History Adventures has changed the way we do history in our homeschool.
