So, you’re visiting the National Archives? Good choice. The Archives is a wonderful museum with many fun things to look at like the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, but there is also little things to look for. For example, when you’re looking at the Constitution and you’re looking at all the states and signatures you will notice a few things like Pennsylvania is spelled wrong, George Washington’s signature wasn’t in Virginia because he was the president of the Continental Congress, and that there is a state missing. There is more to this museum once you get out of the room with the Constitution. You can see stuff like a comic about the steps that important documents go through and a fun patent game. I hope you have a fun visit at the Archives.
We were very lucky to have the opportunity to borrow (that’s for free, people!!!) the Oak Meadow curriculum for 8th grade from another homeschooling family. The civics book is just great so far and I (momma raisin) highly recommend it. If you aren’t lucky enough to get a FREE copy, you can buy it here: Civics/8th Grade Social Studies
