Drive Thru History Adventures homeschool video curriculum combines two of my favorite things: laughing and history! I love to watch Dave Stotts! He is funny and silly. All of my kids love to watch him, too. I said a "YES! Pick me! Pick me!" when asked to review Drive thru History American History Adventures from Coldwater Media, Inc.
My son loves all the different cars in the videos. All of us love seeing all the exciting places Dave visits. It's like going there ourselves.
Unlike a boring museum tour guide, Dave Stotts is funny, exciting, and full of interesting information. He travels to different places in an different vehicle and shows you historical sites while teaching you about history from a biblical and historically accurate perspective.
I had the privilege of reviewing the American history curriculum with twelve episodes. This series covers Columbus to the Constitution. Created for homeschoolers, this entertaining history video curriculum combines the best of everything: travel, video, humor, fine art (on the website pages), primary sources, worksheets, and answer keys. The lessons are simple and fun!
The work takes place on the website. Heading to the first page, we listened to the first episode and discussed it using the questions on the page. We could have downloaded a pdf worksheet with the same discussion questions so that the kids could have filled out the worksheet instead of just talking together. There is also an answer key. We also read Columbus' letter to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain and an excerpt from the diary of Columbus.
The website is beautiful and easy to navigate around. I loved all the classic artwork adorning each page.
The original documents and primary sources were a perfect compliment to each lesson.
We were so excited, we plunged on that very day. Every video is excellent and funny!
Now, I have to confess something. I have been using the American history and Bible history Dvds for years to supplement our history studies. You see, I am a HUGE fan of Drive Thru History. And, using the subscription for the next year is amazing! I am so excited!
I can't wait to check out the Drive Thru History: Ancient: Christianity and the Birth of Western Civilization and the brand new Drive thru History: The Gospels videos and curriculum. As soon as we finish the final lessons of the American History, we will watch the Ancient History and The Gospel history videos.
In fact, right now Drive Thru History Subscription Site is offering a special deal: if you purchase an annual subscription, they will give you a free The Gospels DVD. See more information here. In addition, they are offering a 20% discount to Old Schoohouse Magazine readers. You can see their latest issue here for more information.
Sneak a Peek at Bible History Vidoes
One of the things I loved about the subscription site is the vlogs and blogs. There is always a new one with topics as varied as St. Valentine and the Mount of Transfiguration.
Instead of purchasing the DVDs like I a few years ago, you can purchase a annual subscription for $124.99 or pay monthly $12.99. For the price, you have unlimited access to ALL the videos: the American history series, Ancient history, and Bible history. Oh, you can try it free for 7 days.
A year subscription gives you a free year subscription to Adventure TV where you can see more courses, shows, specials, and bloopers.
You can check out Drive Thru History on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.

Until next time: Happy Homeschooling!
