1774 - Felicity :: An American Girl Lap Book and Unit Study


Resources:

~ Front Cover ~ 
For the cover the girls each choose an image from the American Girl Website's Wallpaper selections, cropping and pasting it to the front of their covers.  They then cut out the year "1774" with the help of our Cricut to add to the front cover as well.

Baked Pumpkin Pudding ~

"Felicity used her best pumpkin to make this tasty pudding."


~ Queen Cakes ~

"Queen cakes were a favorite of the Queen of England.  Felicity liked them, too, because they were made with sweet currants, which are like raisins."

  3. Hi Jessica,
    This is great! Looking forward to using your ideas next year. Do you think the Portraits of American Girlhood book is worth the money? Just wanted your opinion. Wish I could preview it. Thanks again!
    God bless,
    Amy
