Girls of American History uses multisensory learning, which follows a pattern of Do It, Write It, Say It, Read It, See It. 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.

The experiences practiced in multisensory learning allow each student to participate in ways that help them understand and retain best. Boys and girls 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.

Making history engaging for students is possibly one of the most difficult tasks for teachers, however it is easier when the subject matter is relatable. Girls of American History uses the popular American Girl book series. This instantly makes history relatable, as the main characters are school age children, families and strong male characters.

Schooling multiple ages together, in a co-op setting for example, is very manaegable. And, with the continuity of the same subject matter for literature and history, as well as crafts and field trip experiences, opportunities for discussion are plentiful and help build a love of learning.

This six week unit study using the American Girl® Marie-Grace® and Cecile® series books is great for doing school in a large class setting, or a smaller co-op environment. Various craft and field trip options are listed for your convenience. At the end of the unit celebrate with your class with 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.
