Time Travelers U.S. History Studies The Civil War by Home School in the Woods

One of our favorite ways to study history is with Home School in the Woods!  This year we are enjoying Time Travelers U.S. History Studies The Civil War  with our American History study.

This study is a downloadable treasure chest of information and activities  designed to bring your history study to life for your 3rd-8th grade students.  It contains 25 lessons that will take them on an adventure from the early days of slavery in our country through the Civil War and Reconstruction of our nation. A handy Lesson Planner shows you exactly what to do and print for each lesson.

The lessons include Text pages - think of these as your "spine" for learning.  They are jam packed with information. We like to read them aloud, but they make great independent reading as well.  A great feature of these studies is that you pick and choose what you want to print.  Everything is well-planned and easy to use, just be sure to stock up on printer ink if you're someone who wants to do it all.

The remainder of each lesson consists of hands-on projects.  From mapping, creative writing, lapbooking, cooking and even fun crafts to make -  this is what truly sets Home School in the Woods apart!  They make history come alive!

Let me show you a few of our projects:

I love all the maps!  I like to print them and back them with colored construction paper to make posters for our schoolroom, or to use them in my coop history class.

My testers LOVE the paper dolls - this unit allowed us to learn all about the women of the Civil War and the uniforms of the Union and Confederate soldiers.  These lessons never fail to ignite my children's imagination and have the wanting to learn more!

This project - the "Library of Leaders" was fun to make.  It's a collection of mini-books about each of these important leaders. I love that these studies give me a chance to be creative too.  My testers think they are so "cute" and I've found them reading them to their American Girl dolls for "school".

 Another personal favorite is the Timeline pages.  I like to print the Teacher Help version - but, you can also print it blank and let your students color and complete.  It makes an impressively long visual of the Civil War.

 Of course- the crafts are always a family favorite!  The instructions are always very easy to follow - and they make a great reminder of our learning.

This Study is filled with information!  From learning about the key battles and leaders to understanding the medical practices and weaponry you will be transported back to the Civil War era.   Vocabulary and penmanship are included in most lessons as well. The Lapbooks are amazing - all you need to do is print and assemble.  Homeschool in the Woods has done all the research and design for you!

Finally, Additional Resources are recommended to keep their learning continuing.
