Completing Grades 1-3

Session 3 – July 10-21 — Colonial Times: Hamilton & Friends!
Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, and others: They were once young, scrappy and hungry! Complete your day-to-day chores, making soap, brooms and clothing for your family, and then walk to school, carrying your important possessions in a pocket or haversack that you’ve made. Practice writing lessons with a quill and enjoy colonial games with your friends. Become an apprentice to the local tinsmith, blacksmith or printer. How was the Jefferson cylinder “a cipher wheel“ used to decode messages during the Revolutionary War? Follow the path of the Founding Fathers and use democratic principles from the Declaration of Independence and Constitution to create your own system of laws. History has its eyes on you!
