Daniel Boone Unit Study Resources

 

 

I put this group of resources together to go along with the French and Indian War and the unit I am putting together for the American Revolution.

As always, I try to 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 $$$$.

Susan B. Anthony Resources


Susan B Anthony

 

 

Strange when you think about…. It hasn’t even been a hundred years since women got the vote. Not even 100 years. How much longer would it have been if Susan B. Anthony and women like her hadn’t stepped up???

February 15th is Susan B. Anthony’s Birthday! I have scrounged up some resources to help you celebrate! 😉

Living Books for History


History Living Books

 

 

Oh, my goodness. I have been having a time with my laptop!! It keeps going on me. After fighting with it for hours I can get it back up and running but I know it’s time to replace it. YILES!!! So here I am, working on the desktop. BLECK!! It’s so weird!! LOL I much prefer my laptop!! Everything is different on this old desktop.

Anyway, lately I have been thinking a lot about the different living books that we use. I have mentioned they here and there in different homeschooling posts and I always put lists of books with my resource posts but I thought I would do a few that were just about the books. I definitely have several favorites!

 

Most of these books fall into the upper elementary/middle school zone but there are some that even my high schoolers enjoy. I’ll mark those with ***.

I will arrange them by “type” of history, although several will fall into both categories.

 

WORLD HISTORY 

***Horrible History and Horribly Famous – TV episodes of Horrible History can be found on Netflix

Value Tales – I loved these as a child and was lucky enough to find several titles for sale at a FOL sale!

Ms Frizzle’s Adventures – Ms Frizzle from the Magic School Bus series go on a few historical adventures.

 

*** Young Royals Series 

*** Wicked History – Very much like the Horribly Famous series.

*** The Royal Diaries – Like Dear America

 

AMERICAN HISTORY

American Kids in History series– hands on activities

American Girls – Movies for some titles and don’t forget about the dolls!

*** Dear America – Shoot, even I enjoy a lot of them! 😉

*** My Name Is America – the male counterparts to the Dear America series

Picture Book Biographies – I put this under American History but I believe there is one or two that are NOT.

If You….. Series – Again, all but one or two are American History.

Childhood of Famous Americans

Heroes of America 

Jean Fritz Books

A History of US

 

BOTH

Time Warp Trio – Also has a TV series that’s available on DVD

***DK Eyewitness – Also has DVDs for several topics

Who Was____? Series – fun, short biographies

Magic Tree House – Currclick has a free online book club. Don’t forget about the accompanying non-fiction resource guides for a lot of the titles!

History in a Hurry

Kaleidoscope Kids Books – Hands on activities

You Wouldn’t Want to…… Series – If you play around on the site you can find a few online for free.

Chicago Review Press – Hands on activities

Don’t Know Much About ….  – My high schoolers enjoy the adult versions of the series.

 

HIGH SCHOOL ONLY

David McCullough – American History

David Nevin – American History

 

 

So, there you have it! A list of my “go to” living history books! There are too many single titles to list but I wanted to give you my favorite series!

I guess I could add Little House on the Prairie, Love Comes Softly (Canadian West) (12 and up) (also movies) and  Canadian West Series (12 and up) (also a TV show When Calls the Heart) as a few non-typical favorites, at least for girls.

 

HAVE FUN LEARNING!!
