First of all I would like to say Happy Veterans Day, to all vets. Without them, this great country, would not be. So be sure to thank your Vets today, and everyday. Tomorrows lesson plan will include this story about Veterans Day, with printable available http://homeschooling.about.com/cs/unitssubjhol/a/veteransday.htm
Todays Homeschool freebie, is an ebook about Pilgrims. It is part 2, to the one I listed yesterday. As I stated previously we will probably save these for next year, and incorporate them into the curriculum. Here is an exerpt of the ebook: Pilgrim Stories II - The Wild Land & Thanksgiving (PDF ebook) In Part Two, the Pilgrims at long last arrive in the "New World", only to find it a truly "wild land" filled with incredible danger and hardship. Providentially, they are befriended just when they need it most, and the very first Thanksgiving is celebrated. You can get this great ebook by contacting me, or going to www.HomeschoolFreebieOfTheDay.com and signing up for their free newsletter. Each offer is only available for that day, so dont delay.
