Rabbit Trails through History: Westward Expansion is a literature based history curriculum for all elementary and middle school students. It contains 9 lessons, with each lesson taking 2 weeks to cover. This makes it a 18 week curriculum, which covers one full semester.
Westward Expansion has lessons on nine important events and people from the 1800’s that made huge impacts on our nation. The nine main events and people the lessons and Rabbit Trails are focused on are:
-Lewis and Clark

What about a sample schedule? I created Rabbit Trails through History to not have any boxes to check- I want homeschool families to make Rabbit Trails fit into their everyday lives without stressing about what lesson needs to be done each day. However, I know some people like to have a lesson all laid out for them so they can envision how the curriculum will fit into their homeschool. I have attached a file that shows a sample schedule for one lesson to give you an idea of how I personally lay out the lessons in my own homeschool.
