Civil War to Modern History Unit Studies

This page contains all the unit studies from this era. You can follow the Civil War to Modern History Unit Studies from Abraham Lincoln though Barack Obama for a complete years worth of history though unit studies.

Each unit study contains things like booklists, notebooking pages, book suggestions, readings, art, drawing, lapbooks, and more.

The schedule for using the Civil War to Modern History Unit Studies as a complete History study for the year is at the bottom of this page. This is the schedule we use in our own homeschool.

I created this page for our own homeschool history studies. I hope you get just as much use out of it as we will. There are so many great resources out there for homeschooling that are 100% free. So, let’s use them!

For the units I couldn’t find notebooking resources for, I did my best to create original ones for the unit. If you have any trouble downloading anything from our website, please let me know. Have a great school year!
