Great American history book
I'm linking up to share my Favorite Resource of the Week with learning ALL the time!!
This week we press ever onward to completing the Revolutionary War. We are moving into the government (how it was formed, what each branch does, etc) when we complete this unit. I would love to be talking about the executive branch by the time the election happens, but we'll see. It's not like there's a set schedule I have to follow.
We've really enjoyed several books as we've studied, but this particular book is my favorite. The kids enjoyed it too. Their favorite part was yelling, "WRONG!"
The Journey of the One and Only Declaration of Independence by Judith St. George is a fantastic book. It covers the history of the Declaration, as well as some little known facts about where it has lived, how it was stored, and who had responsibility for it. The illustrations are great too.
