The children are both doing a Government study in a local co-op so many of the recommended discussions in the Micro-Study were things they'd recently learned about in class. I love when studies unexpectedly come together! Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims offers several different methods of studying about the Pilgrims. First are the weekly sections to read. Some weeks contain some questions to cover orally with the students. There are pictures too. Activities that can be done at home are recommended. Vocabulary, some crafts, and even some recipes are included as well. The outside links take you to virtual tours and some short videos. For week 2, there is a clip from Kirk Cameron's Monumental movie. The clip is all about the National Monument to the Forefathers. Now both kids want to take a trip to Plymouth, Massachusetts!
Homeschool Legacy Micro-Study Unit studies are written from a Christian perspective, and this one included some Bible verses. I feel so blessed that my children have been able to freely learn about the forefathers of our nation and their intentions through this study and our local co-op. It's so important that our children really understand our heritage and the principles that America was originally founded on.
This study would be ideal to begin in November and end in December. The first 4 weeks really focus on Thanksgiving while the final 2 weeks start to discuss Christmas. Apple was thrilled to find her favorite Wassail recipe included in week 6! She served it at our Thanksgiving meal last year and intends to do so again this year. Since this is a download item, you have plenty of time to get it and get started!
