Homeschool Freebie of the Day is offering a great package this weekend only. Here’s what it includes:
Listen My Children (MP3 audio) –
FIRST UP up this a great half hour audio story about
Revere’s long life and influence, including the events of
that fateful night, as originally dramatized on the radio
program “Cavalcade of America”, in December, 1952.
“Listen My Children” Listening Guide (PDF ebooklet) –
Next, you’ll want to use this PDF discussion guide with
background info and questions to accompany the above audio program.
Paul Revere’s Ride (MP3 audio) – Next, we have a SECOND
classic audio for you: A wonderful dramatic performance of
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s classic poem,
“Paul Revere’s Ride” as performed by Frederic March.
If your kids have never heard it, they are missing
out on one of the quintessential American poems. Give it a listen!
And FINALLY, we also have a neat PDF art study lesson focusing
on paintings & sculptures depicting Paul Revere (as well as
the Minutemen), courtesy of Yes You Can! Publications.
This is lots of fun and a great way to combine history
with art appreciation & hands-on activities to boot.
All these resources are up today and for the entire weekend. While you’re over there, be sure to sign up to receive a homeschool freebie each weekday. You can find them at http://www.homeschoolfreebieoftheday.com
