We are nearly finished updating our free history studies based on the book Stories of Great Americans for Little Americans by Edward Eggleston. This free public domain title is a great introduction to history for the early reader. You’ll find download options on the Introduction page along with suggestions for using the lessons.
The study includes 33 weeks of lessons covering Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Daniel Boone, Thomas Jefferson, Lewis and Clark, Washington Irving, James Audubon, Charles Goodyear, Kit Carson, and many other famous American explorers, inventors, authors, scientists, and statesmen.
We have added a few more resources and updated the links. Included are parent/teacher suggestions, ideas for further investigation, hands-on and interactive activities, book recommendations, lesson plans and other units, and notebooking pages and printables. We also incorporate map work.
All of the lessons should be updated by the end of the month. You can follow our progress along with other site updates on our Updates page.
