I have suggested several books for your studies and there are many more resources out on the internet. You can also find many educational videos and resources out there for free.


Along with the worksheets provided, I've suggested a few projects, such as the Harriet Tubman lapbook, Underground Railroad worksheet, and some vocabulary words. I've also provided some copy work and a letter F page depending on the needs of your learner.
