Homeschool Ponies Volume 2 - Pioneers
Similar to the Patriotic program (see description in Civics), but patches and units require students to map their journey through the seven states that make up the Oregon Trail, learning about each as they "pass through." Each chapter is a unit study, including background information, in which students learn about the state's history (including making a representative pioneer craft) and a modern-day study (including state birds, flags, seals, etc.). As in Vol. 1, symbolic, iron-on patches add to the already motivating study. Units take about 10 weeks.
