Georgia state history?

My oldest will be in 4th grade next year and I have no idea what state history curriculum to use! We are in Georgia. Any ideas?

*Just a little update since I haven't posted here in ages and you may not remember me. I am mother to 4 sons ages 9, 7, 4, and almost 2, wife to a wonderful husband who is also a pastor (we are planting a church), and caretaker to my mother-in-law who is disabled. We moved from California to Georgia in June last year.

Are you familiar with Notgrass? IMHO they offer the best "formal" curriculum for GA State History. The link for Notgrass' EXPLORING GEORGIA curriculum is below, along with a couple of other links that you may find useful...HTH..and WELCOME to Georgia and back to The Spot!

Exploring Georgia
Content: Seventy-five lesson history book, student activities that complement each lesson, and a packet of quizzes and exams with an answer key.

Enjoy Exploring Georgia at your own pace. You can read one lesson per day (five lessons per week) from The Story of Georgia, and then complete the worksheets that go along with that lesson. At this pace, you can complete the material in one semester. Or, you may want to read only two or three lessons per week and spread the activities out over a two week period. Children of all ages can enjoy studying the material together with their parents. We designed it especially for students age 10 and up.http://www.notgrass.com/georgia-stat...curriculum.php


Georgia A Mini Unit Study

This mini unit on GEORGIA uses the cross curricular approach to education. There are several activities from different academics subjects for you to choose from. One of the most important things is to have fun!

At the Southeast Homeschool Expo last summer, I remember someone selling books and materials about all 50 states. For example, you could buy just a package about the state of Georgia. It was generating quite a bit of interest. I'll go through the brochures I collected at that event to see whether I can find the name of the company.

PS - I don't think it was the same material as mentioned above, which implies that relevant material may be available from more than one source.

I used it with my girls a while back. I'll probably use it with Phillip sometime soon, maybe next year. There's a page where you're to put a picture of a historical place. My 6-great g'ma walked up from West Virginia in the 1790's, and a good number of years back, they had a historical marker dedicated to her and to the little corner in Ohio where she settled. I was there at the marker dedication with Faythe, only two months old. Of course, the people taking pictures want pictures of the baby! So in her book, we have the modern-day picture of the marker, along side the picture of her at the dedication. (Though she had to send an e-mail to my uncle, the family genelogist, to find out exactly how many "greats" were needed!)
