in 3 weeks? Any thoughts? This would be for 2nd grade and 5th grade. I have 3 weeks free in our schedule after lining everything up. Can I do it in that time or if not what to do with those 3 weeks. They are not at the end of our year(or I would probably quit early!!). They are week 22,23and 24. We school for 36 weeks. After that we are scheduled to do the first 2 books in the Little House series along with lapbooks for them. So what are your thoughts and ideas?

Do this as a unit study. Add a good chapter book or a few shorter books to go along with it. Although there is plenty of reading material in the book itself.

This year we're using the whole series as unit studies to learn about American History. Then we're adding in some good biographies/historical fiction to go along with it.
