Girls of American History Hands on Learning

Share Button
Starting our new homeschooling year I decided to add in American History. We have been traveling the world with our geography and just finished our Road Trip USA curriculum. We have dabbled in World History for over a year and it was time to move on. I was thrilled when I found Girls of American History. I know you might be thinking, since I have boys that might seem a little odd, but I think it’s very important for them to be well rounded. I want them to get to know girls that have done great things. All while exploring the different cultures and time periods.

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.
