Our Award-winning Early American History Through Literature study guide has been completely revised and expanded . Now in full-color we have included additional books, resources, activities, comprehension questions, and web links. This guide will take you and your K-3 students from the year 1000 AD with the Vikings discoveries, exploration, colonization, Revolution and Western Expansion to the mid-1800's with the Civil War. Used as a one or two year study, parents will read aloud award-winning literature from great authors such as the D'Aulaires, Walter Edmonds, Alice Dalgliesh, Clyde Robert Bulla and others. Organized into easily followed lessons, students (and parents!) will learn the history of our nation along with corresponding biblical principles, poetry, geography, character studies and much more! Though designed as a one-year course, it can be stretched to two years, depending on your pace. Contains 107 lessons and it is suggested that 2-3 lessons be completed each week.
Quick feature list for our recently revised Primary Early American History Study Guide:
* Beautiful full color layout including historic art, paintings, charts, and maps
* Internet links throughout guide for further interest and enhanced study
* Many optional activities listed, especially having to do with geography

* All seven beloved D’Aulaire biographies are still at center stage.
