Studying history as a family is, perhaps, the best way to learn.  One of the most important parts of homeschooling is family relationship.  Schooling multiple ages together with the continuity of the same subject matter for literature and history, as well as crafts and field trip experiences, gives opportunities for family discussion and builds long lasting and cherished memories.

The experiences practiced in multisensory learning allow each family member to participate in ways that help them understand and retain best.  Brothers and sisters learn together and help each other with projects such as making a kaleidescope or paper dolls, having discussions about the story, historical information, as well as positive character traits such as justice, leadership, perseverence, etc.  

Multisensory learning is great for every kind of learner - because each learner gets to experience learning the way they are most comfortable - but they also have the opportunity to learn through other senses.  Studies and research have shown that learning material through multiple senses helps children to retain information better.

Get the entire family involved by playing baseball or touring a bakery.  This six week unit study using the American Girl® Melody® series books is also great for doing school with an additional family or two.  Get together for weekly activities or field trips, while doing the rest of the study on your own with your family.  Get together at the end of the unit for a community or family picnic of your own!

These American Girl stories are printed in a three book set called "Beforever".  The first two books, in the Melody® Beforever series, are needed for the curriculum.  The third is a fun reading, choose your own adventure style book.
