Planing Early Modern History

A couple months ago, I sat down and correlated our history study for next year with church and family history. I have since realized that I need to do the same thing with the second half of the Story of the World 3. Church History in the Fullness of Times is abbreviated CHFT. So, here it is:


Chapter 22: The American Revolution

We'll be spending some time on this section of history. I am so excited about this!

For this, we'll be making a lapbook. I think that, as much as we are doing, having a thing to organize it all in will be better than doing a series of disconnected narrations, so we'll have minibooks and a timeline, collected into a lapbook instead. For the parts and pieces we'll be drawing from:
