Colonial America Term 2 Book List...

If you are a regular reader, you know that we LOVE great living books here on Drywood Creek.   A while back I shared this list of books that we read while studying Exploration & Early American History.  Today, I'm going to share our Colonial America book list.  Again, these are family read aloud books.  RileyAnn also has her own reading list that coordinates with each time period.  The books with asterisks (**) indicate books we did not read fully, rather we referenced or read sections from them.

You may notice this list is longer than the Exploration list.  However, many of these were picture books rather than chapter books.  We did spend 14 weeks on this term and the last three books will spill over into our Term 3 Revolutionary War study.   If you are studying the Thirteen Colonies and enjoy notebooking, you might consider checking out these notebook pages I created.
