W.I.L.D. Guide - d'Aulaire's Pocahontas



A Charlotte Mason-inspired book guide for grades K5-6  to follow as you read the book Pocahontas by Ingrid and Edgar d’Aulaire. 


What does W.I.L.D stand for?

  • WE- This guide is meant to provide time for you to be with your student…the times that we get to spend with our children learning and being curious together are absolutely priceless and such a valuable part of homeschooling! You will read a living book along with your student and enjoy the activities and investigations together.
  • INVESTIGATE- find out more about topics and ideas by asking questions, doing experiments or other fun activities included in our lessons and the printable Student Pages.
  • LEARN- Dive deeper into a topic or idea from the book George Washington using the links that we provide- no more searching the internet on your own since we have done all of the work for you!
  • DISCOVER- Locate and learn more about places mentioned in the reading by “journeying” there together using our Google Earth and Google Map links!
