George Washington:
25 Great Projects You Can Build Yourself

by Carla Mooney
illustrated by Samuel Carbaugh

This series is fabulous for adding some hands-on activities to any history unit. This book provides lots of well-written, age appropriate background on Washington's life (timelines, anecdotes, maps, details on his many accomplishments...) PLUS tons of projects to make, like: a pretend sword, a colonial era toy, a letter seal, a quill pen... (and teachers will appreciate that the materials needed are largely stuff you can easily get or even already have!  Highly recommended. 

Teachers, take note: "While the design of the book lends itself to the possibility of kids enjoying it on their own, it will be most effective in a classroom."  (School Library Journal)

Interest Level:  Grade 3 - Grade 7
