A Thomas Jefferson Education-This Week in History

As you surf the internet or read your daily paper, you may occasionally see little factoids listed about "this day in history" followed by a few sentences of something about a person, place, event or discovery, that took place on that particular day. Well, Rachel De Mille from A Thomas Jefferson Education takes this a huge step further by providing This Week in History, a thorough look at history one day at a time.

For each day, this online subscription lists an event that happened on that same day many years ago. Not only does it talk about that specific fact, there are many resources that are included with it such a links, photos, project ideas just to name a few. You can also receive an email a few days prior to the start of the week listing what topics will be covered in the coming week giving you the ability to plan ahead a bit if you choose to do so. We found it just as easy each day to check out what was today's history piece and go from there.

There is so much info each day that you could easily use this for your full history curriculum for the year. Not only are you learning about history, but the projects & ideas listed also tie in math, science, geography, arts, & current events are also incorporated with each piece of history you are studying. I loved the fact that all the work is done for you making it so easy for the parent to teach. 

If you are wanting to study a certain topic, there are archives that are searchable by date, topic & keyword. We enjoyed looking up each of our birthdays to find out what happened on that specific date. If you'd like to look into this more, TJE also has samples available to browse. I feel this is a resource you could use for all ages. The cost of  This Week in History is $9.99 a month.

As a member of the TOS crew, I received this product at no cost for me, in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
