And I LOVE the name. Raising Refounders.... Exactly
what I am striving to do. This is a free curriculum for grades 7-12, all about the founding fathers, first presidents and early American history.
Semester one is covers "The New World", Christopher Columbus, etc. Semester two is now available, about Roanoke. However, there are also studies on several founding fathers available, including printables, reading material and activities. There are even downloads for each of the 50 states with worksheets and maps.
There is also a page just for historical videos, which is a great resource on its own! No more searching through YouTube for the few treasures in the rubble. And, no more having your kids reading the vile comments left under almost all YouTube videos. Now, you can watch them from the Raising Refounders site!
This website is produced by the great people at Simple Schooling. If you haven't seen their materials, you should head over there, too. They have a huge selection, and they give away a free unit study each month!
