This is a map of a colonial village. I can't remember which book this was from, Colonial America or History Pockets. As a whole, I like the History Pockets better, and in my opinion the age range of 1-3 and 4-6 are right on target, as we haven't enjoyed the 4-6 range as scheduled for our 1st and 2nd graders as much as the 1-3 History Pockets.
Here's a sample map from Colonial America.
We added in Ox-Cart Man for our colonial study (love this book!) We used the lapbook found on here on Homeschool Share and put the components in our notebook. It turned out quite nicely!
The house is from History Pockets, the outside of a colonial home. Wax paper is used to signify the oiled paper that they used for their windows. The drawing on the bottom is Dreamer's (6) drawing of colonial people. She drew them for a month straight, so she had a lot of practice!
Here is the inside of the cabin.
