Product Description
This series of books follows two young girls through life in a part of the United States that truly has it's own culture. Their lives are different, yet their paths cross and a wonderful friendship blooms. Additional areas of study include the Louisiana Purchase, Yellow Fever Epidemic, French language and more. Strong male characters include a grandfather, father and older brother. This is a unique unit that really encourages children to think about others, serve and help in their community and appreciate the arts. New Orleans is rich with a history unlike any other in the United States. Giving, serving and thinking about others and ways to help are things that help build long lasting positive character traits. The crafts in this unit lean more toward girls. All units now include spelling and vocabulary, State/Country study, Character analysis worksheets, then and now comparison worksheet, news article prep, book summary, chapter summary with drawing, and digging deeper project suggestions.

Studying history as a family is, perhaps, the best way to learn. One of the most important parts of homeschooling is family relationship. Schooling multiple ages together with the continuity of the same subject matter for literature and history, as well as crafts and field trip experiences, gives opportunities for family discussion and builds long lasting and cherished memories.

The experiences practiced in multisensory learning allow each family member to participate in ways that help them understand and retain best. Brothers and sisters learn together and help each other with projects such as creating a costume, making a beaded purse, having discussions about the story, historical information, geography, as well as positive character traits such as confidence and sacrifice, etc.

Multisensory learning is great for every kind of learner - because each learner gets to experience learning the way they are most comfortable - but they also have the opportunity to learn through other senses. Studies and research have shown that learning material through multiple senses helps children to retain information better.

Get the entire family involved while watching a parade or having a picnic by a lake. This six week unit study using the American Girl® Marie-Grace® and Cecile® series books is also great for doing school with an additional family or two. Get together for weekly activities or field trips, while doing the rest of the study on your own with your family. Get together at the end of the unit for a Mardi Gras Party of your own!

The American Girl Marie-Grace® and Cecile® series is available in a six book reader set. These books can generally be found in most used book stores or online on ebay or Amazon.
