American History Part 2 Supplement Schedule
As usual, there are tons of ideas here, and they will work with any American history curriculum. We certainly don't use all the ideas in this schedule, but pick and choose. Sometimes we're just not in the mood to do something, and we simply skip it!
I've scheduled a wrap-up of the state study started in last year's schedule. The states were scheduled as they entered the union. Since this schedule is from Civil War to present, any states which entered after 1850 are included in this schedule.
There is also a president study starting on week 21. I am using a book called Smart About the Presidents to help me out. We will simply read a short 2-page spread on each president, complete some lapbook components that I found for free on Homeschool Share, and I created some president flashcards to help us remember them all. All the links are included in the schedule.
Other than that, we've got plenty of internet links (which sometimes go dead), activities found on the internet, time period recipes, activity books, a few extra books (which we don't always get to), and lots of notebooking.
I hope you find it helpful in fleshing out your history books this year!
