What We're Reading Now: Civil War on Sunday

We've been steadily working our way through the Magic Tree House Series. We just finished "Civil War on Sunday" which turned out to be perfect timing because we are also working on making sure we've covered everything in our "What Your First Grader (and 2nd Grader) Needs to Know" books. We just finished reading about how slavery began in the U.S. so it worked out nicely that we also read this book about how it ended. I think if the author or publisher of this series ever decides to market a series of unit studies for each book they could make a fortune. They do have "Research Guides" that are good, but I'd like to see something that has an actual lesson plan with vocab words, science experiments, math, etc.

We love Magic Tree House! Even K, whose reading level way exceeds the books still loves them and they learn so much history from them as well! :)
