Sewing, Homeschooling and Craziness




Our next history unit on the list is early American settlers. I will be including resources for Jamestown, Roanoke and Plymouth. I wanted to include St. Augustine but I had a realllllly hard time finding any resources. :/ I guess we will have to use Wikipedia (YILES).

I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had time to make up notebooking pages for this unit. Fortunately, there are TONS of freebies to be had for Jamestown and Plymouth, not so much for Roanoke. If I have time before we actually DO this study I will make some and add them here. 😉

As always, I include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).

All printable resources are free unless marked with $$$.

SHEW!!! It took me a long time to put all of this together! So glad to make it to the end!! LOL


We will be exploring the difference in colonies. The difference in WHY and HOW they were established.  We may even try to recreate them somehow… MAYBE…. 😉

Later on I will be making a unit study on Thanksgiving, so I didn’t include any resources in THIS study.


I hope this helps! 😀
