    I'm sorry I don't know of any similar sites. Hopefully someone else will pipe in here. When my son was in second grade, actually we still supplement with lots and lots of field trips. We go to historic sites, environemental sites, museums, etc. For my son this seems to fill in what he needs. Many of these locations offer monthly homeschool classes. Talk to the places near you. If they haven't already offered these classes they may start them if you ask. We also read a lot. The Chester comics have a lot of historically accurate books written in comic book style. These are very appealing to my son. For geography, we joined a postcard exchange group on yahoo. I got a map that we colored in when we got a new post card. We stayed with this group until we had postcards from every state and a few other countries. You could also do a lapbook or a notebook with a page featuring important facts about each state. It would make a fun project.

    Fairylover has a lot of great ideas! We supplement a lot with library books and videos (YouTube, Netflix).

    Thank you Dondre. I like to share what I have found works for my son and I. It's a way to pay back those who have helped us along the way. After all, we are all in this together.

    I'm considering getting Elemental History's Adventures in America. They have a PDF version (but you would have to print) and a hard copy version. It says geared toward early elementary. My son will be in first grade. It is supposed to be fairly light which seems good for us right now. Not sure if that would interest you. elementalhistory.com
