Bring history to life with a hands-on lap book your children will love – a collection of crafts and creative projects that fold down into a kind of portfolio, and unfold to show their detailed magnificence.
The American History II - Lap Book Kit is a hands-on activity to help reinforce and document your students' American History studies.
The photos on this page don't do justice to the exquisite detail and delightful projects you'll find in this lap book. The templates were drawn by the talented Amy Pak, who also drew the Timeline Figures in Sonlight programs. Using this kit, your students will cut, color, write, tape, and glue their way to a deeper understanding of events in American History.
This American History II lap book is full of activities related to the slave trade and the Civil War, both World Wars, modern inventions, and many other topics covered in Sonlight's Level E History / Bible / Literature program. The kit includes instructions and materials for 45 projects, from the 1850s on.
For example, you'll cover topics such as the battle of Gettysburg and the mail-order catalogs of Montgomery Ward, you'll trace the various paths of the Underground Railroad, learn about the transcontinental railroad, and look at innovations, business tycoons, a famous assassination, and the suffragists. When studying the Great War, you'll fill an ammo belt, color a map, create a timeline, read some of the poetry and propaganda, and so on.
Kit includes all materials including:
- cover folder
- various forms of paper
- and all the pre-printed materials necessary to complete the lap book
You supply the colored pencils, tape, glue stick, glue gun, and scissors.
Each of the 45 projects is scheduled as an optional activity in the current Sonlight Level E History / Bible / Literature Instructor's Guide. With the help of the included instruction booklet, you can effectively use the Lap Book Kit as a hands-on supplement for any US History program.
Each activity takes roughly one to two hours to complete. Children ages: 9-13
