The Revolutionary War

We're ready to explore the fighting between the original English colonies and her Mother Land during our summer school lessons on Monday. Each of the 13 colonies were discussed, and what or who made them special enough to establish in the first place. So, The goal to discover the history of our United States of America is begun and continues with "This Country of Our" by H.E. Marshal, "Story of the World" by S.W. Baurer and some "Liberty's Kids" videos. We'll also use various stories including "Ben and Me." I enjoyed listening to "Johnny Tremain" with the kids a couple of weeks ago. I also enjoyed reading "Washington's Lady" by Nancy Moser on my own after hearing her speak in April. It's time.
