Becoming History Costumes and Presentations

When I home schooled my kids, I motivated them to research and do oral presentations by Becoming History. That had the added bonus of boosting our Classical Education program to a deeper level than by merely reading books and holding Socratic Discussions.

Besides...isn't it wonderfully reminiscent of the Pickwick Club that the March sisters held in their attic?

  1. Wow! You guys are amazing! My sister and I grew up homeschooled and we did costumes for history with our mom too, but maybe not to this extent. :) We're all grown now and off to college. These costumes are so accurate, creative, and unique! (and you started all this before all the craftyness of pintrest was a thing.) Homeschooling is an amazing way of learning. Carry on you educated folks!

  2. What fun costumes! I just bought a few today for our "Roaring Twenties" celebration, but will be heading into the sewing room as well!
