George Washington (Build it Yourself Series) Book from Nomad Press Review & Giveaway CLOSED

0 Shares

George Washington: 25 Great Projects You Can Build Yourself offers a fascinating look into the life and times of our nation’s first president. Readers ages 9 and up can explore Washington’s years as a young Virginia gentleman, his military battles, and his political contributions to a fledgling nation. Using common household items and minimal supervision, kids have 25 hands-on activities to help them learn about this legendary figure in American history. Young readers will: create a surveyor’s map, cook Washington’s favorite hoecakes, write with a quill pen, make a replica of Washington’s battle sword, and much more. Along with detailed, step-by-step instructions for each project, George Washington: 25 Great Projects You Can Build Yourself includes biographical sidebars, illustrations, historical facts that allow kids to explore George Washington in a fun, hands-on way.

I am not a homeschooling mom.  But if I was I would definitively use George Washington: 25 Great Projects.  Even though my children attend school we had fun learning more about George Washington and his time period from this book.  My three year old is interested in George Washington (as much as a three year old can be anyway).  The text of the book is obviously too numerous to read entirely to a three year old.  However it is really easy to pick specific parts out of this book to focus on.  We made two projects from the Make Your Own section.  First a Battle Map- My three year old and I had a fun time making our Battle Map look like an antique!

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

Doesn’t our map look old:)

 

 

Second Project-  Silhouette Art- I love this old fashioned art form!

 

 

 

 

Not only do I recommend this book as a mother, but I also recommend it as a former history teacher.  Yep, in my former life I was a history and English teacher.  I wish I would of had this book while I was still teaching.  The amount of information and the format that is used make it easy to understand.  I would have had so much fun using the make your own activities in the classroom.  I guess I will just have to focus my teaching skills on my own children instead:)

There are a variety of books in the Build It Yourself Series from Nomad Press.  As a mom and former history teacher I highly recommend this series.

You can purchase these books from Nomad Press or at Amazon.com
