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! The Hands-On Learning Store also 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.
