Need Suggestions for 1st Grade Hands-On History Curriculum
My son is a kinesthetic learner, and he does NOT like listening to me read to him unless he's tired and relaxed. Usually he falls asleep during the story then. So I'm having trouble planning a history curriculum for 1st grade. It needs to be FUN, hands-on, interesting. Not just reading out loud and then asking him questions. I have the Story of the World set (volume 1 book and activity book), and after looking it over, I think I'll plan to save it for 2nd grade. Hopefully he'll be a little better listener then. I really do want to work in some general early American history for 1st grade, though. Is there something out there that has projects involved? Not lapbooking - he hates it, for some reason. Thanks for any suggestions you have!
