Description: In this class we will be learning history through the stories of the American Girl Series. Starting with Kaya, an American Indian living with her family and learning the traditions and stories that have been passed down through generations. Next, we will meet Felicity who is growing up in the time of the American Revolution and the beginning of war. We will then go to 1824 and meet Josefina, a girl who lives in New Mexico with her family on their Rancho. Lastly, we will see into the life of Kirsten growing up in 1854. She and her family come on a boat from Sweden to America.
Each week we will learn about the girls and the time they lived in. We do this by lap booking, and crafts. The students do not need to own an American Girl doll or the books. You can check out all the books through the library.
