The upside is that I like the idea of limiting my body of all of the glucose which will help my minor health conditions.
But there are definitely downsides!

Here it is ... the first installment of our American History lesson plans using "America: The Story of Us" as our spine. We are currently on Episode 6 and I anticipate us at least getting through Episode 10 by the end of the school year. I hope that you find these posts helpful as you plan your lessons.
The first episode of America: The Story of Us is "Rebels". We spent three weeks on this unit.
We started reading Blood on the River by Elisa Lynn Carbone. We read an equal number of pages each day to cover the three-week unit (** highly recommend).
We watched Episode 1, did the discussion questions/video quiz for the episode and the vocabulary words. These can be printed by going here. The Episode Guides are down the left hand column on the site.
All "notebooking pages" are printed from Advanced World HistoryVol. 2 from Hold that Thought!
