Early History of the United States Historical Book Club (2022)
Let’s learn some American history… the FUN way… history club card included!
During this 9 week class, we will dive into history using the books from the “Who Was” and “What Are” book series. This series of books brings a lot of powerful information on people, places, and events to children in both a straightforward and fun way! These books appeal to both boys and girls and are designed for readers and reluctant readers alike!
Each week our book club will meet to discuss the book we read during the previous week (we will not read books in class). Each week I will also send a packet of educational printables that include a lesson plan, a vocabulary list, a crossword puzzle, a word search, and a sheet of flash cards to help each learner gain the most from each lesson.
Children will also be asked to bring a book based project. This project is meant to spark some creativity, help with those that really benefit from hands on learning, and help bring history to life. Projects can be drawings, paintings, Lego builds, dioramas, a poem, or anything your child would like to share to express their vision of what they learned from each book. Projects will be shared during the class meeting time, which will encourage public speaking, allowing learners to talk to each other and make friends.
Each learner will get a Historical Book Club card and a “stamp” each week after finishing their books!
Our first class will be an introductory class, where we will set the structure of future club meetings, and have some fun learning about history. Future classes will be structured with a short introductory period, discussion time, sharing of projects, and if time allows, in class visual aids. Each week I will also send a printable to the classroom to help learners remember the key points of each book.
This course is a 9-lesson course.
This class will meet Thursdays from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM CST beginning on Thursday, January 27th and will be ending Monday, March 24th.
