We used Time Travelers to help supplement for the older aged kiddos and their lessons. Homeschool in the Woods has some amazing history lessons packets that can be used along with your history pockets!
Each week the kids covered facts, read descriptions and stories about the history, and then were able to put together projects to go along with the lesson. Each pocket has a different topic that they work on over a few weeks.
Incorporating field trips is also a great way to reinforce the lessons...we have a few one-room school houses in our area. Visiting one is a GREAT way to add to the experience!
I do have to add that the scotch brand glue sticks work by far the best of any I've found in the stores...
they are worth the little extra in price!
Here are more pics of some of the fun and creative activities for a few of the pockets with the "Moving West" book.
I hope you thoroughly enjoyed our review of the Evan Moore History Pockets! We plan to continue using them over the years and as my younger kiddos start school, I will get them started on them as well! They make the historical facts so much more fun to learn and much more memorable!
Plus, going back over them year after year is very rewarding for the kids. They love sharing their creations with family and friends as they explain everything they've learned from the lessons!
