Summary

Summary

This beautifully illustrated book introduces readers of all ages to American history from 1000 to 1700 A.D. through projects associated with various peoples of the period. By replicating several pieces of Viking jewelry in paper, readers can learn the story of the Vikings' clothing and craftsmanship. From the Woodland Indians comes a treasure trove of clothing, weapons, and containers, re-created here with paper. Fifteen colonial-era projects are included. Full -- color illustrations, a history of each artifact, stories, and a colorful map bring long-vanished cultures to life.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7-Merrill has done her homework, and this addition to her popular series shows that she knows her stuff. This book is filled with projects that will engage children and simplify the job of teachers looking to extend their curriculums. The author begins with a map of early America, indicating points of interest. (Unfortunately, it has no compass rose or scale.) Each of the three major sections contains an introductory mini history lesson that will help students grasp the significance of the people while providing interesting tidbits about the culture. However, the projects are the real heart of this book. They are attractive yet relatively easy to do (though children in lower grades may need some adult assistance) and will enrich student understanding of the historical concepts. Descriptive text explains the significance of symbols and items and gives detailed directions. Line drawings and a full-page color photograph of a finished project are included. The author has also provided drawings of architecture in the New World, techniques for creating different types of surfaces, and patterns that can be enlarged. Teachers, students, homeschoolers, and parents who enjoyed this author's Hands-on Latin America (Kits, 1998) and other titles will find this first volume in a projected four-volume set of activities focusing on American history useful, informative, and fun.-Dona J.
