We love to see homeschoolers across the nation using the Rush Revere Series! We work with homeschool groups and families to incorporate the #1 New York Times Bestselling series into their history curriculum. Below are some ideas to make your reading even more fun!

Mayflower Re-enactment, Book 1

Mayflower Re-enactment, Book 1

This homeschool group from Michigan was inspired by Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims to have a real-life Mayflower simulation! After reading Book 1, the group recognized how difficult it must have been to live in close quarters. Their teacher put lines on the ground to show how close the Pilgrims truly traveled! They even brought food that the Pilgrims would have eaten. After, we recommend a Thanksgiving feast to celebrate “reaching land”!

Visit the Freedom Trail with Book 2!

Visit the Freedom Trail with Book 2!

At the Adventures of Rush Revere Series, we recognize the sacrifice it takes to homeschool your children. We also acknowledge the opportunities it allows your children for true hands-on learning! Many of our favorite homeschool families have visited sites on the “Freedom Trail,” while listening to the audiobook version of Rush Revere and the First Patriots on their way!

Host a Dodgeball Game, Book 3

Host a Dodgeball Game, Book 3

Rush Revere and the American Revolution helps students understand the ways the Revolutionary War shaped the United States. In fact, the middle school characters in the book learn first-hand about the war through a dodgeball game. This homeschool group from Oregon had an outdoor dodgeball game to celebrate the end to their read through the third book!

Recite the National Anthem, Book 4

Recite the National Anthem, Book 4

We know we have some of the most patriotic young readers in the world! We are always excited to see videos of homeschoolers who have memorized our National Anthem after reading Rush Revere and the Star-Spangled Banner! Some have even written patriotic poems of their own just like Francis Scott Key! This young man sang the National Anthem while visiting Fort McHenry.

Make A Puppet Production, Book 5

Make A Puppet Production, Book 5

We love seeing the creative ways that our homeschool families are making history come alive! This homeschool family made Rush Revere and Liberty puppets to act out their favorite scenes from the books. Make puppets for Elizabeth and Cam to relive their famous Student Body President Election in Rush Revere and the Presidency!

Rush Revere's Homeschool Favorites

Rush Revere’s Homeschool Favorites

Ms. Dana’s group from West Virginia is our Homeschool Favorite of the Month! We are so excited to have such a passionate co-op group reading the Rush Revere Series. Ms. Dana has continued to make learning fun for her students by participating in Read with Liberty and putting together a fun craft for her students each week! Last week her group made Pilgrim hats. Dana says about the series: “ I have heard nothing but positive feedback from the parents and I’m hoping that my co-op will approve us to do the next book in the series. I love this book!”
 
Great job to Ms. Dana and her awesome group!
