Making history engaging for students is possibly one of the most difficult tasks for teachers. How do we overcome that? Two key things are critical for accomplishing this task. First, it must be relatable in someway, and secondly, it needs to offer learning opportunities for multiple learning styles. 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.

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 building a model plane or paper dolls, having discussions about the story, historical information, as well as positive character traits such as justice, leadership, kindness, etc.

Schooling multiple ages together, in a co-op setting for example, is very manageable. 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.

Activity and field trip ideas are pentilful and include playing baseball and touring a police station. This six week unit study using the American Girl® Nanea® series books is also great in a large class setting, or a smaller co-op environment. Get together at the end of the unit for a luau or class picnic to showcaser what your students have learned!

These American Girl stories are printed in a three book set called "Beforever". The first two books, in the Melody® Beforever series, are needed for the curriculum. The third is a fun reading, choose your own adventure style book.
