I count this book as being responsible for leading my children and me into a passion for American History in our homeschool! This Christian guidebook outlines lessons based on excellent literature or "living" books from the Vikings to the Civil War. What a great way to learn—through true stories! Daily lesson plans incorporate the “Principle Approach” at an easily understood level, assigning parent read-aloud pages in the literature books, plus providing activities such as poetry, geography, character studies, biblical principles, and much more! (There is some busy work, such as coloring in pictures. I replaced this with simple writing and creative art projects related to the subject.) The program can be completed in either one or two years. Spiral-bound guidebook has black-and- white illustrations. A delightful way to learn history for both parent and child! Ages 5-9 yrs.
This collection of picture books and good reading books are used with the program to create a memorable introduction to American History for ages 5 to 9 years. I love using this program and so do the kids! The books are unsurpassed, especially The Stories of the Pilgrims, The Courage of Sarah Noble . . . okay, I guess I love them all! You'll use them and refer back to them again and again during your homeschooling experience. Includes Leif the Lucky, Columbus, Pocahontas, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Buffalo Bill, Stories of the Pilgrims, Courage of Sarah Noble, The Fourth of July Story.
