American History-- Week 19

We had history last Friday...

We made a little book of the Bill Of Rights.

Next we used a worksheet to make sure we understand what each ammendment talks about-- the kids did really well!

We also reviewd all our cards up to this point.

We started talking about the Lousiana Purchase--- We made a notebook page from material from Enchanted Learning

We added what the Lousiana purchase was bought for, the amount of land, Thomas Jefferson being president and Napoleon being part of France--who we purchased it from.

We also spoke of the Barbary Wars-- and talked about America refusing to pay the pirates that were attacking ships money to keep the ships safe.  This ended up in two wars being faught, and American winning both!  The Marine Hymn-- where it talks about the Shores of Tripoli, refers to these wars.
We also talked about the Whiskey Rebellion of 1791
