Notgrass History

Teach Elementary U.S. Geography with Confidence


"The text is interesting, simple, and not dry like a lot of textbooks. There are also a lot of beautiful pictures. It's easy and all laid out for us; there is no guessing what activity to do next. We love it!"

Sarah P., Missouri

❌ The Problem

You really want to be a good parent. Not just a good "regular" parent. A good homeschool parent.

But it's hard sometimes. You have so many things to think about, so many plates spinning, so many demands and responsibilities. It's easy to feel overwhelmed.

Helping your elementary student learn U.S. geography shouldn't be one more burden.

✔️ The Solution

The Notgrass History team has experience as homeschool parents and as homeschool students. We've been there!

We've used curriculum that was frustrating. We've talked to other families about their bad experiences. We don't want that to happen to you!

Notgrass History makes it easy for you to teach and easy for your child to learn.

"Our 50 States has been perfect for our 2nd and 4th graders. I have been able to teach them together and that streamlines this busy mom’s schedule."

📝 About Us

Ray Notgrass, Charlene Notgrass, Bethany Poore, John Notgrass, Mev McCurdy, Nate McCurdy

Hi! We're the Notgrass Family. Thanks for visiting!  

History lovers Ray and Charlene Notgrass raised three history lovers, John Notgrass, Bethany Poore, and Mary Evelyn McCurdy. When Mary Evelyn married Nate McCurdy, another history-lover joined the clan. We lead the team that brings you Notgrass History.

Creating high-quality curriculum for your homeschool is an honor and a joy for us. We read history for work. We read history for fun. We talk about history around the table . . . a lot. (Is that weird?) You'll see our love for history in every book we create.

We are followers of the Author of history. We want to help students see how God has been at work in the past and how He is at work today. We pray that our curriculum will help families understand God's truth.  

We also love homeschoolers! As veteran homeschoolers, we've learned a lot along the way. We've learned what works in real life and what doesn't. We want you to love using Notgrass History, so we make it easy for you to use.

Check out what we have to offer and let us know if you have any questions. We're here to help!
