Adventures to the New World: Part 1




Adventures to the New World is a fun introduction to early American history for elementary grades by using great books and hands-on activities to bring learning to life.

This guide covers 4 units in the exploration of the New World: Vikings, Christopher Columbus, the Jamestown settlement, and the Mayflower using some of the “You Wouldn’t Want to…” books.

Each unit is a 4-week study to learn all about the explorers and time period. Included for every unit is a book list, supply list, weekly guide, and multiple activity instructions (with photo examples) and recipes. The weekly guide is broken into 3-4 short, open & go lessons but can easily be joined together or moved around to fit into your schedule. The lessons guide you on what to read, videos to watch, projects or recipe suggestions, map labeling, and prompts to fill in notebook pages.

At the end of each unit, your children will be adding a diary entry of what they learned to their “Explorer Journal.” Instructions and writing prompts are included.

Each of the 4 units require 2 books needed (last photo shares a list.) The book list in each unit provides additional book suggestions and read aloud/chapter books. Required books can be found on Amazon or on secondhand websites- search titles on or

Full guide is 82 pages.
