Girls of American History: Review and Giveaway

logo med

Justine is hosting a giveaway for one of her units through February 23.  Make sure you stop by for a chance to win!

Recently I was given the privilege to review Justine Gamble’s Girls of American History curriculum.  She has put together a great collection of history unit studies, based on the American Girl book series, centering around girls like Kaya, Felicity, Samantha, and Kit.

As a fellow homeschooler, Justine wants to produce good quality curriculum that will benefit children.  She has created units that support a multi-sensory approach where children are:  reading, hearing, seeing, writing, and doing to maximize their learning efforts!

There are eight units altogether, which cover various aspects of American History, like Indian life, the American Revolution, Pioneer Times, and the Great Depression.

Each unit includes:

  • a suggested weekly schedule
  • craft resources
  • field trip ideas
  • book ideas
  • activity recommendations
  • and more!

Children who enjoy crafting will love creating teepees, log cabins, braided rugs, bookmarks, and other memorable handiwork.

If you have an appreciation for hands-on curriculum, you’ll want to check out Girls of American History.  Justine has done the hard part – putting the bits and pieces together for a great learning experience!  All you have to do is put her great resources to work!

For more information on the “Girls of American History” curriculum, check out their web site -

Again, the giveaway is through Feb. 23.  Don’t forget to enter here!
