What little girl doesn't like Little House? The stories of Laura Ingalls Wilder make a wonderful Summer Adventure! We use these for regular school units as well. You can see our first three units in the left hand side bar close to the bottom. Our next study will be On the Banks of Plum Creek. Below are some resources you can use to have fun with the books. There are no shortages of Little House ideas that is for sure. This is a fabulous read aloud series that will have you and your kids laughing. Dan and I enjoy it because kids haven't changed all that much through the years and we can see a lot of this happening in our own kids or in what we did as kids! And just in case you are wondering...boys love little house just as much as girls. Farmer Boy is a favorite here, but there is plenty of action in the other titles as well.
This is a unit study written based on the Little House series. Worth it as a resource to have on your shelf- The Prairie Primer.
Of course you have to include all the food! We had a great time making recipes from the World of Little House too...a lot of work with molasses. I'm just sayin'.
Information about each place the Ingalls family lived as well as Laura and Almonzo once they were married. There are some really nice pictures in here.
This guide book shows each Little House today and how and when to visit- basically a tour guide book. We have yet to make up to Malone, NY where Farmer Boy takes place. Soon....
There are picture book versions of chapters out of Little House in the Big Woods, Little House on the Prairie, and Farmer Boy. Our kids really enjoy these even still.
