Dad here. During our trip, we visited some of the most important sites in US History, and as we went, we talked a lot about what happened at each and when. It became a “homeschooling habit” for us to sit at dinner and go around-the-table with each kid describing one of the major events in American history, one at a time, trying to remember the order, key people, reasons, etc.
After we got home we decided we’d do one more round of this– in writing! So, we assigned events round-robin-style from youngest to oldest and then the kids sat and wrote what they knew/remembered about each key event.
Alexander played moderator helping the girls fix up their prose… and below is the result. Here is “American History as told by the Belfiore Kids!!”
