Imagine being able to travel through time and being plopped down right in the middle of some of the most important events in American history. Author Susan Kilbride’s new “Our America” series tells the story of twins Finn and Ginny as they search back in time for their lost parents, learning about American history and having some amazing adventures along the way. To celebrate the publication of the fifth book in the series, The Pioneer Adventure, Susan has put together a neat Pioneer Activities PDF that can be used either with her book or with any unit on the pioneers. It includes several kid-friendly activities such as drying & preparing food pioneer-style, making pioneer toys, and other things that will help younger students get an idea of what it was like to be a pioneer-era kid.
In addition to the Pioneer Activities PDF, Sue also has four more neat Activity Guides available as freebies, corresponding to the other books in her “Our America” series. There are neat “living history” ideas and activities in all of them… check it out!
