Expansion packs are ready and I’ve already started sending them out! While our American-History-in-a-Box sets follow the U.S. Standards and help children learn the major concepts required in U.S. schools, our expansion packs go more in depth in a personalized way to capture the interest and excitement of our kids.
Write to us and we’ll create a personalized expansion pack. We can create a Native American pack focusing on tribes from your home state, a Women in History pack focusing on specific interests or specific people that are important to you, or a pack that focuses on any minority group in the United States. With so many inspiring, important, relevant, and personal events and people in our history, we can’t include them all into one course for all children. With these expansion packs, we focus on the same timeline but use specific people, events, and ideas that connect to your interests or connections.
You will get 5 – 7 books mailed directly to you (some may be gently used if your state or topic is more obscure and the books are currently out of print) and an emailed activity pack with 20 – 30 pages of activities and one larger activity designed to get your child active, moving, and making connections.
We also have Standard Expansion packs on major topics including:
- Native American History
- African American History
- American Women in History
We loved putting these packs together but, as always, the hardest part was picking the people, events, books, and activities for the pack. If we had our way, there would be 100 books covering a multitude of people and events. It is so hard to pick and choose when there are so many influential and inspiring people out there. But, young children looking for an introduction to the beauty of history shouldn’t be overwhelmed. This is a drop of sand and an entry that will hopefully encourage children to dig deeper and further into history as they grow and learn. If they are inspired now, they will want to learn about more and more. That’s our goal.
