Wondering why the week numbers start at week 5?  We did not start American History until our 5th week of school.   My little history buff begged to do history every day of the week!  I didn't want to move through our world history course too quickly, so adding American history seemed the best option. 
 
I have not previewed all of these links, so please preview before deciding which resources to use!  Most of these links are to free resources.  I will try to make a note when something requires a paid subscription.
