When I first researched The Mystery of History, I was blown away by how many components there are to the program. What I love so much about it, is that you can really pick and choose how you use this curriculum. There is no right or wrong way. You can use as much or as little as you like!
For some people that are on a budget, they may purchase the text or audio books used, and then want to come up with their own extra supplements and resources to make a full, well rounded curriculum. I know there have been times in our homeschool life where I had to piece meal many things together to save money. There are other times when I have been super busy, it was a great blessing to spend a little extra on the components so that all the work was done for me.
If you like to save money and put things together yourself, or are on a tight budget, you may be searching for some free printables to go along with your history spine. If that is you, you have come to the right place.
