I need something for Native Americans, Early Explorers, settlers, pilgrims, witch trials...that should cover our first 6-8 weeks I think.

For an 11 yo girl and a 12 yo boy.

Any ideas?

You might want to check out Pinterest...look up Elizabeth Crow. She has some great ideas for what your looking for in living history.

This is awesome.  I had already planned our first 6 weeks of science, but I am going to grab from this to add to or adjust what I had planned!

Thank you for sharing!

You may have to dig on their site a bit more. It looks like a lot of books are missing!

Caption's dog is excellent. Story of Lewis and Clark from their dog's perspective. Rush revere is good as well. It is not political if you can get past his pic on the cover.

The Witch of Blackbird Pond is excellent for that time period even if it's fiction.

The "Who Was..." books have a couple explorers (we used Magellan, but I think they have Columbus and Polo too).

Try Jean Fritz (author).

The Crucible, A Break With Charity by Rinauldi are both good for the Witch Trials.
