The Prairie Primer really does give you a lot to think about as you go through the Little House books! Sometimes I'm not even exactly sure why it suggests studying something, like when they recommend studying breathing when you are in chapter four. The only connection to breathing that I could find in chapter four was when it said, "Pa's breath hung in the air like smoke" :) But, whatever the reason, I have been wanting to teach the children about their body systems anyway, so we started here, with the respiratory system. (To see what else we learned about while reading through Little House in the Big Woods, you can see my previous post here.)
Earlier this month I told you that we are reading through the Little House series in our homeschool. We have now finished reading Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder. While I read, the kids worked on our Little House lapbook binder. As I show you what we did, I will link to where you can find the same printables that we used. Just click on the purple words and it will take you to my Pinterest pins.
I love field trips! Especially when we get to join other homeschoolers! Recently we met with several other homeschool families for a trip to the Morse Museum and Cultural Center. It was a lot of fun, and perfectly timed for some dot-to-dot connections with our Little House on the Prairie unit study :)
We started a project that I have been looking forward to for years! We are reading through the Little House on the Prairie series in our homeschool!
