History with author Edward Egglestons book~

I had mentioned we were going to be starting out reading Edward Egglestons book~ " The History of the United States and its People". I don't think I realized how much my son would enjoy it.
I decided to work through the whole book now and have created some notebooking pages you can see to the left of the blog at the homeschool launch site and also on my website Learners at Home. Just scroll down to the History section and you will see them there.
I am hoping to do one for each chapter as we move along.
Today my son read about four chapters~ he really liked it and we learned a bit more about these early explorers so I am glad we back tracked a bit before moving right into the Jamestown activities.
I will add the notebook pages as we do the chapters so if your interested be sure to book mark my website because I will add them there first as we go along.

Science ~ Amphibians Notebooking Page and Frogs~

We are doing a unit on Frogs and learning more about Amphibians. I have created two new notebooking pages that you can find on the Learners at Home Website or over at Homeschool Launch~
When checking out the Learners At Home Website scroll down to the subject your looking for, in this case it would be for Science and you will see my pages.
When using Homeschool Launch you will see on my left side of my Learners at Home Blog updated pages I have created so you can stay updated as I create them~ and click on each to have a look.

For these pages we were using the books;
"Natures' Children Series, Frogs " ( you can find this series in most libraries in your area)and also an old book I had on our shelf called "Wonders of Living Things".
