Back to our current studies. After reading Chapter 3 from SOTW, I read aloud Jamestown, New World Adventure (Adventures in Colonial America) and The Lucky Sovereign by Stewart Lees. We then read The Double Life of Pocahontas by Jean Fritz. We actually listened to a free audio download offered by our public library, and the narrator was fantastic. We all enjoyed this book very much.
We are currently reading A Lion to Guard Us by Clyde Robert Bulla. We are enjoying the story line, but I'm having a difficult time getting used to the short, choppy sentences.
The boys also watched a Schlessinger Media film titled Colonial Life for Children: Jamestown. Check your local library. You can download a Teacher's Guide for it here.
