Class Description:

Saddle up for the most thrilling history lesson ever with Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, the first in Rush Limbaugh’s children’s adventure series. The book begins aboard the Mayflower and follows the Pilgrims through their first winter in the New World.  American history teacher Rush Revere time-travels with two young students to see American history first-hand. Always riding along with him is his trusty talking horse Liberty, who is hungry for knowledge – and food! Come along with the time-traveling adventure crew as they build forts, sword fight, explore, speak with exceptional people like Squanto and William Bradford, ask the exceptional Americans who were there: Why do you want to leave Europe? Who is the leader on the Mayflower? What food do you eat on board? Where do you sleep? and also witness the first Thanksgiving. There is so much to learn! During co-op hour students will listen to the audio book, work on study guides (study guides will be provided), do a fun word search, and if time allows we will play a game. We will end our semester with a celebration in honor of our brave pilgrims!
