|George Washington's Headquarters|
So during our 2nd half of our American Revolution unit, we covered from Valley Forge, through Saratoga, and on to Yorktown. We read comic book biographies on Thomas Jefferson and Benedict Arnold from the Graphic library, and read "Why Not, Lafayette?" by Jean Fritz...All of them I would highly recommend. Lafayette, especially, was a fascinating person and had quite a notable life! I honestly knew NOTHING about him, other than that he came from France to help the Americans. I really loved learning about him alongside my kids.
This week, we are planning to wrap up the American Revolution with an emphasis on George Washington's life, using the following books:
|George Washington's Breakfast|
|George Washington True Patriot|
|If you Grew Up with George Washington|
