Girls of American History was great! We started off with the Unit Study about Josephina. It took place in 1824 in Southwest America. The unit study is filled with all the information you need to teach, it has weekly plans for reading and crafts. It is filled with ideas for lapbooking, food, and even field trips and It is planned out in a way that makes it easy for you to follow. It was also very easy for me to cater it to my boys.
We added the Draw Write Now books into our day(suggested in the curriculum as an option). We love the Draw Write Now series! My boys love to draw and make their own books, so it seemed fitting for them to make a book from this time period. They drew covered wagons, animals, and southwest artifacts that went along with the stories of Josefina. It was great to have a time line included in the curriculum and be able to map out the families travels.
The crafts that we choose to go along with Girls of American History Unit 3 Southwestern America were Draw Write Now ,leather stamping, and weaving for kids . Perfect activities for any girl or boy. We ended our month with a fabulous southwestern fiesta.
