Hakim's A History of US activities?

I'm considering using A History of US for my boys. For those that have used it, what did you use for supplemental activities? I like how SOTW has an activity guide, but I haven't found anything like that for History of the U.S. Am I going to need to put my thinking cap on and get creative? :)

The most helpful additions we used were "US History Map Activities" from Walch Education, "Great Documents in US History" vol 1 & 2, & "Critical Thinking in US History".

 

There aren't nearly as many maps as SOTW had, but they are nice maps with most of the major topics.

 

The documents & thinking books aren't really anything as hand-on as the activities from SOTW, but were both great supplements to HUS.

Homeschool in the Woods - American Revolution. - http://www.homeschoolinthewoods.com/HTTA/TTS/AmericanRevolution.htm

 

Evan Moor - American Civil War History Pockets - http://www.evan-moor.com/p/563/History-Pockets-The-American-Civil-War

 

DVD - The Story of US - http://shop.history.com/america-the-story-of-us/index.php?v=history_show_america-story-of-us

 

Both Evan Moor and Homeschool in the Woods have activities for the other eras of history as well.

 

Hope this helps!!!
