The American History I - 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.

American History I lap book

This American History I lap book is full of activities related to early explorers, the Revolution, and many other topics covered in Sonlight's Level D History / Bible / Literature program. The kit includes instructions and materials for 25 projects, covering early Native Americans through the 1850s.

Sonlight American History Lap Book materials include:

  • A 38-page clear and detailed instruction booklet, with many full-color photos that illustrate each project
