This is a 250+ page unit study guide that uses the American Girl historical book series by Pleasant Company. The American Girl Collection consists of seven series with six books in each series. Each series follows the story of a different heroine as she faces the challenges and adventures of growing up during her distinct historical era. The first book in each series introduces the main character, the second centers on events in her school or home school, the third takes place during Christmas, and so on, with each book paralleling corresponding books in the other series. Heroines names are: Felicity, Josefina, Kirsten, Addy, Samantha, Kit, and Molly. This popular series is readily available in most libraries, or you may already own them all!

The study is designed around a 36-week school schedule using six of the seven units included. The study guide is written from a Christian/creationist perspective.

The guide is for grades 2-5, but can easily be adapted for older students using the enrichment activities at the back of each chapter. It comes with a FREE CD ROM that contains over 70 worksheets, maps and handouts for you to print out from your own computer. Also included are adaptation ideas for kids with special needs, how to include boys in the study, and lots of tips and tricks to help you along the way.
