Welcome to The Hands-On Learning Store!

I’m Carol Henderson, author and webmaster of the The Hands-On Learning Store,, &   These sites evolved after years of teaching both my own kids at home and also classes of kids in a large, homeschool co-op. 

I love creating hands-on activities and projects almost every week for my history & geography students.  The websites and The Hands-On Learning Store are a way I can offer all this creative energy to other teachers for their homeschools or creative classrooms. 

Take a minute to browse the store!

Hands-On Geography

Lets Go Geography - a geography curriculum for homeschools, co-ops, & creative classrooms

All geography products come from the curriculum. The full curriculum provides 32 country studies & general geography lessons per year, & there are 3 years to choose from! In contrast, The Hands-On Learning Store lets you choose any country study to purchase individually. And there are 90 different countries (including regions of the US) to choose from!

Please note that The Hands-On Learning Store is separate from the primary site. Your purchases here will not appear in your account at the primary site (& vice versa).

Hands-On History

A Book In Time offers history reading choices for almost all historical time periods. is a valuable resource for hands-on history teachers, & the source for all history products offered at this store. The site lists kids’ reading books for almost any historical era, with short descriptions & grade level recommendations. And it offers hands-on history crafts & timeline resources, too.
