The Early 1900s (by the books)

To read a brief overview of my history-teaching method, click here.  And remember: These lists are not intended to be all-inclusive.  They are a jumping off point for your own walk through history. 


This era was one of my favorites.  Because we were reading so many biographies, it was easy to slip them in the cracks  of our winter break last January without the kids even knowing we were doing school!
