Drive Thru History...

Have y'all watched this show on TBN? It is hosted by David Stots, and man is it great! :-) I happened upon it one night while flipping the channels, and I stopped to check it out. I thought maybe I could record it to use with "Little Mark." Somehow the DVR ate the recordings, so I bought two of them on DVD.

We have "Rome if you want to", and "Greece is the Word." I plan to purchase "Turkish Delight" and "East meets West" next. I fully intend to also buy the "Drive Thru America" Character Curriculum as well. :-)

I have enjoyed watching the DVDs a lot, and I have even watched them without "Little Mark" and it wasn't to prepare for a lesson. It was just for FUN.

David Stots is a great teacher, but more than that he is entertaining as he gives you the information. The way he told the story of Romulus and Remus was classic. ;-) Even "Little Mark" paid attention and learned something. :-) It actually proved to me that he is learning from all of his curriculums, because he is currently studying Greece and Rome in his History SOS, and of course Paul's journeys there in Bible SOS. This just helped to bring everything "full circle" for him. ;-)

Anyway, I strongly encourage you to take a look at these DVDs, and consider using them for your school. :-)

BTW... I am not in anyway being paid for this "plug", but if the great people at Drive Thru History would like to donate any of the above mentioned DVD sets to me I wouldn't say, "No." ;-)

Yes, I love this series. I don't own any of them, but I have seen them on TBN. I have only seen them on late and the kids have always been asleep. I need to see about getting them to watch them.

I've looked at this series a couple of times. I ended up purchasing some A&E history documentaries that were less expensive. I'll keep your recommendation in mind though. ;)

Peace to you,
