Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: History Pockets: Life in Plymouth Colony, Grades 1-3 (Paperback)
This History Pockets is centered around "Life in Plymouth Colony." It says it's for grades 1-3; I ordered it for my 6 yr old. This book includes 8 "pockets," each with a theme and containing craft projects, vocabulary building activities, coloring pages, reading sections and more!
The pockets are: Voyage to the New World; The New World; Building a Village; Home Sweet Home; The Family; Working in Plymouth Colony; Going to School; and What did the Pilgrims Give Us?
Each pocket can easily be stretched to last an entire week. Reading one day, craft the next day, recipe the third day, etc. And since they are broken up into themes, finding books at the library to go along with your current theme is pretty easily managed.
Craft projects you'll find in this book: Pilgrim puppets,a quilting book,a hornbook, a tithing man pole, a diorama and many more. Most don't require much more than crayons, scissors, stapler and glue, but don't let this fool you; these projects are very cool, and the finished product gives young children an idea of what life was like "back in the old days."
I purchased this for my daughter to work on during the spring and summer months, in between 2nd and 3rd grade history textbooks. Once we've finished this book, we'll buy the Colonial America History Pocket.
