Social studies/history/geography recs?

I'm having a hard time finding many social studies reviews.... looking for 3rd grade. History and geography are my weakest subjects so a great curriculum would benefit my family.

Oh - get some lapbooks from hands of a child
Super fun and a great way to learn when you don't remember what it is you are supposed to be teaching.

Classical: Lots of people love Story of the World (I like it, kids don't so we won't use it next year).

Charlotte Mason: We are going to do module 5 from Simply Charlotte Mason next year. I also looked at amblesideonline.org and that was good (and free).

Unit Studies: We've done Hands of a Child and those are fun! Intelligo does some great unit studies as well.

Those are my favorites of the different styles that appeal to our family. HTH!

I've been looking at History Odyssey by Pandia Press. Not decided completely though.
