DOWNLOAD the Standards

Advanced Adventures can be used as a stand-alone curriculum, or a complement to our existing K-4th grade unit studies for kids who love hands-on learning but are ready for a little “more.”

{Advanced Adventures} Early American Settlers comes with lesson plans, printed worksheets, a book (Our Strange New Land by Patricia Hermes), activity instructions and supplies.

During the Early American Settlers Advanced Adventure, learners will read excerpts from William Bradford’s journal and a historical fiction dairy about a girl in the Jamestown Settlement. Then they’ll compare and contrast the experiences of the Plymouth Pilgrims to the Settlers of Jamestown. They’ll also bake May”flour” biscuits, practice cursive writing with a quill pen, create art with herbal tea paint, tie mariner’s knots, and much more!

We’ve divided the learning experiences into four sections, and we recommend doing the activities in the order suggested as some build upon the next. However, you don’t need to complete all the lesson activities at once if that’s too much for your schedule. Just pause, and pick up where you left off next time. Doing these activities two days a week will take four weeks to complete the unit.
