I promised to give you the basics of what we are doing, so here it is. Let me know if you have any questions.
We have read The Civil War - An Interactive History Adventure by Matt Doeden. This was a neat book for us. The kids loved taking turns making choices and hearing the outcomes. I loved that they always wanted me to read more.
We made a Civil War time line with index cards. Everyone has been referring to this to help study for quizzes. It's near where we eat so there are plenty of opportunities. :)
We visited a living history day at the Tunnel Hill Heritage Center and Historic Railroad Tunnel. This we loved!
We've also read Civil War Cooking: The Confederacy by Susan Dosier. We really enjoyed this book. It's full of good stuff, not just recipes.
We are using a Dover Discovery Kit. (The kids LOVE this.)
Right now we are reading US Kids History: Book of the American Civil War.
We are also enjoying an American History Playing Card Deck.
Up next we will be reading The Battle of Chattanooga by David C. King.
I just love unit studies! Do you?
