Elizabeth has been studying Early American History over the past few months. Instead of verbal narration one day, I let her draw a picture of what we read about. Here's her illustration of Paul Revere's Ride.
Incidentally, our state's Grade Level Expectations require almost nothing for first grade history. If I recall correctly, children should only be able to differentiate between historical and modern times, particularly modes of transportation. Amazing to me. Kids soak up historical adventure like sponges at this age.
