The Revolution

We are headed for a 2nd grade Unit Study of Colonial Life and the American Revolution. Every Christmas I fall in love with Williamsburg, VA and this year I’m giving in and feeding it. Today is the beginning of our Unit. Martina’s assignment is to create a diorama of what she thinks life was like in Colonial America.

We have several books we plan on reading and I’ll post Amazon links as we get to them. For now, Martina may use these for information if she feels like she needs more than she has:
Adventures in Colonial America Series:
Later this week Daddy is going hunting and we girls will head to Colonial Williamsburg for a nice lunch at the Williamsburg Inn and some taking in of the sights there. Perhaps Martina will use a bit of her Christmas money to purchase a new Colonial era dress and a red woolen cape to go with it. Maybe I will too! Then we’ll have proper outfits to wear on our forays into Colonial America and war with England.
