Some of these may be appropriate for middle schoolers as well - and perhaps a couple for upper elementary. I have not reviewed every movie/mini-series myself, so please preview to make your own decisions!
I plan to take advantage of my Netflix subscription with homeschooler more often. We are currently watching The Story of Us! (#2)
1. Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre - read for free with Kindle Unlimited. Watch on Netflix:
Jane Eyre 2011 or Jane Eyre 1996
2. America: The Story of Us along with free study guides
3. The Bible miniseries along with the episode guide and of course, a Bible.
The Civil War. Classroom resources.
The Ultimate Guide to the Presidents - and here is a book we used the past few years: The President Fact Book (except ours stopped before Obama) Oh, and an episode guide from History.com
Or if you have Amazon Prime, you can watch Portrait of the American Presidents, Part 1 & 2
7. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas movie and book by John Boyne
The Universe. (History Channel) I have an astronomy buff - so we will be watching this. (We'll be skipping any references to Big Bang, etc) Here is an episode guide.
