Description:History.com is offering a free DVD of AMERICA: The Story of US to every school in the United States - including homeschools! The 12-hour series premiered in April and offers "a fascinating look at the stories of the people, events, and innovations that forged our nation." To get your school's DVD (retail value about $60), you must fill out the request form located at the website. It asks for basic info including:

Principal's Name (you)
School Name (name of your homeschool)
School Address (home address)

Be sure to click on the small button at the bottom of the page that says, "Yes, send me the Free DVD of AMERICA The Story of Us and occasional updates about the teaching materials available for educational HISTORY programs" before clicking on the "Submit Request Form."

And while we're talking FREE resources, ClickScholar Cie sent this information...

For a limited time, you can get a free "American Presidents Timeline" poster from C-SPAN. As explained at the website, "The 6ft long poster details the lives and public service careers of every president, plus key historical events, Supreme Court cases, and technology milestones throughout 280 years of Presidential history."

When you get to the website you'll see a brief description of the timeline and below it the words, "Teachers: Log In or Register Here to Get This Offer." Click on that link and it will take you to a page where you can login to order your poster.

If you are not currently a member of the C-SPAN Classroom, a free membership service for social studies teachers (including homeschoolers), then you must register. Look for the words, "Register New Account." Click on that link and a new page opens where you can register and order the poster.

Not only will you get the poster, but free membership includes the ability to store C-SPAN Classroom videos and video clips, access free supplementary materials such as lesson plans and handouts (in pdf downloads), and you'll learn about special offers such as this "American Presidents Timeline" poster.

Enjoy!
