I did not include science because it was all over the place. My 14-year old focused on biology, and the younger ones did a little geology and astronomy. We did some nature study, but did not form a habit.

We pick up where we left off. Beginning with 1865 and ending by 1900, we will study Reconstruction, Westward Expansion, the Wild West, the railroad, Native Americans and war with the Natives, industrial and technological progress, women suffrage, and the Spanish-American War.
I have already chosen our literature and enrichment for each term. And for science, we are sticking with chemistry for the whole year. I sort of fell off the Charlotte Mason ban wagon. I could not do everything. As my year planning comes together, I will share the details.
Have a great summer!
