Product Description:

It was a different way of life, being a pioneer in the west, and perhaps hard for some to really imagine. Well, imagine no longer. The 25+ roll-your-sleeves-up-and-get-stuck-in projects of all different kinds will bring you face to face (from the comfort of your own home, of course) with life as a pioneer. Build replica sod houses, log cabins and covered wagons; make your own 3-D maps, pemmican, and butter; cross-stitch, journal, garden, and more. History really opens up through the facts, anecdotes, biographies, trivia, and great activities in this book. Well-illustrated with pictures and maps, this 122 page softcover book is sure to please.

Category Description for Build It Yourself Series:

Hands-on activities are great for adding some fun to your learning, especially when it comes to an exciting subject like these different historical periods. Each book provides 25 or more hands-on building projects and activities that only require easy-to-find materials like drinking straws, spray paint, rope, newspaper, flour, foil, etc. Detailed step-by-step directions are given for each project. There are lists of materials needed and an estimated time it should take to finish each project, but there's much more to these books than just the activities. Each project is combined with historical facts, anecdotes, biographies, and trivia that somehow ties in with the project. Text boxes, captivating "Did You Know?" segments, and "Words to Know" sections (which define various historical terms) all come together to get the most educational value out of the fun hands-on projects in the books. Included are black and white illustrations and diagrams that add a lot of interest to the information. So, learn about Ancient Egypt as you build your own papyrus boat or bake some flatbread; become a pioneer out west as you construct replica sod houses, learn to cross stitch, and make your own butter; send secret coded messages and construct your own model Anderson shelter as you learn about WWII; sip homemade apple cider as you learn about colonial America and make your own yarn and cloth; and journey to medieval times as you make a model thatched roof, construct a mini trebuchet, create beautiful grails and stained glass, and so much more. With tons of fun projects and great information, these books are great supplements to any history study. Each book is 122 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
