Today I ran across a neat, FREE, American History curriculum! The site is called Our Los Banos and a homeschooling mother is basically sharing what she's doing with her son. I LOVE the hands-on activities and that it is simple and yet covers quite a lot. We are going to study American History in the fall, and I think I'll be using a lot of her ideas!
We are getting ready to do a little study of the Magic Tree House book, Buffalo Before Breakfast. (In fact, I think we might do several MTH books over the summer.) While researching things we could do with it, I decided to cover the Plains Indians and buffalo. I am loosely basing my plans on a study I found at this site.
And, now I'm adding what I found at Our Los Banos.
We're planing on starting this study on Monday after finishing up a few loose ends with our bird study (which I'll try to post about soon!) and our Keepers projects.
