History in Your Hands

For Ages: 7 and up
  • customer reviews
History comes to life with a keepsake treasure. Much like Science with Stuff gets kids excited about science with great visuals, carefully chosen factoids and a cool gift, History in Your Hands makes history fun and exciting. Kids can learn about westward expansion and hold real "fool's gold" in their hands. Just like the 49ers.

The Wild West explores westward expansion--from the Louisiana Purchase and the Oregon trail; through the experiences of riding in a wagon train or fording a river; to the gold rush itself. Readers will get a fascinating window into the life of pioneers, ranchers, settlers, and gold miners. The keepsake fool's gold will make a vivid reminder of one of the forces that drove Americans west.
