** Indicates books I read excerpts from, not the entire book. 

We didn't get quite as far as I'd hoped this term historically.  But this is OK since we will continue to read aloud over summer.  Some additional books that I have planned are...

All Set Sail by Armstrong Sperry
The True Adventures of Daniel Hall by Diane Stanley
a couple books on the Pony Express, which I haven't settled on yet
Go Free or Die by Jeri Ferris
Walking the Road to Freedom by Jeri Ferris
Abe Lincoln Goes to Washington, 1837-1865 by Cheryl Harness

Below are examples of notebooking pages the kids completed throughout our third term history study....
