I recently discovered a great resource to aid in memorizing history dates and events: History for Music Lovers Youtube Channel.
Their goal is to make teaching history more fun through the music videos. These videos are very short, two or three minutes long, and designed to reinforce what has already been learned. The videos seem to concentrate on European and Ancient History; I did not see any videos on American History.

Let me know what you think! Is this a resource that you will use in your homeschooling?
