Heroes & Heroines of the Past: Amer. History Curr. Printed Ver.


Amy Puetz, a homeschool graduate and longtime writer for Home School Enrichment Magazine, has recently released her new history curriculum, entitled Heroes and Heroines of the Past: American History. It is available in both a print version and a downloadable digital version.

Amy believes that learning about history should involve more than just reading words on a page. That’s why she has created a multisensory curriculum that will involve all of your child’s five senses through reading, hands-on projects, recipes, audio recordings, and more.

Heroes and Heroines of the Past: American History includes several components. First, there is a two-volume textbook which forms the core of the curriculum; each volume contains fifteen weeks’ worth of lessons (five lessons per week). Many of the lessons include a section of questions, writing topics, and hands-on projects. In addition, the set includes a book of nineteen historical skits, recordings of historical American documents and speeches, twenty historical songs, and an assortment of other odds and ends including a handful of videos, timelines, games, and more.

Amy recommends her curriculum for grades 1-6 and has employed a unique method for accommodating this broad range of ages. Most of the lessons in the textbook include two sections. First, there is a single page, set in a larger font, that gives a basic overview of the material. This is for the younger students (first and second grades). In the remaining pages of the lesson you’ll find a more in-depth look at the material for the older students. In this sense, Amy’s curriculum is almost like a two-for-one deal.

To learn more, you can check out the table of contents as well as some samples at Amy’s website ( If you and your students have found yourselves bored with more traditional approaches to history, allow me to suggest checking out Amy’s new curriculum. It’s a unique resource and may be exactly what you’re looking for.
