5 Books for Hands-On Projects from Early America

5 books for hands on projects from early america

We’ve been studying Colonial America as you might have read in my previous post, Notebooking Pages, and we are having a great time with some of the hands on projects from one of our books. We recently made Shrewsbury Cakes which are basically butter, flour, sugar, egg, and nutmeg. The butter melts in the oven so they spread out like a lake over the pan, but when they are done, they are like a softer version of a basic sugar cookie. We try to do hands-on activities related to everything we study and I recently found some other books with lots of great projects. Here are a few that look the most promising. We have the Amazing Math Projects book from the Build It Yourself series (some of them are listed below) and I really like the format of the book and the projects are manageable.
