Many of you may be preparing your curriculum for the upcoming school year. It’s often quite a challenge to select curriculum that is both interesting and challenging at the same time. We do not homeschool but we do add quite a bit into our Summer enrichment. This Summer we added the Girls of American History lessons into our Summer learning and exploration. And don’t be fooled by the name, this curriculum works for both genders, in some units more than others. Girls of American History was written by a long-time homeschooling mom of five, and she nails it!
“Girls of American History was created to be used with the popular American Girl historical, fictional series. Each unit in Girls of American History is meant to last six weeks. Of course you can lengthen or shorten this based on what works for your family. For example, you may decide to spend more time on the Felicity® & American Revolution Unit, as there is so much to learn and review for that particular time period. Don’t be deterred by the use of American Girl books; this truly is not a study just for girls, but for all children. There are many strong male characters in each series, as well as crafts and field trips that will entertain and engage boys.”
You can check out samples here before purchasing the curriculum. We enjoyed exploring history, language and doing so with a very hands-on approach. The connection to the American Girl series was the icing on the cake. If you are looking for a unique way to approach history this year check out this curriculum set and support a homeschooling mom while you’re at it!
