Fast and Easy Extensions for Three Young Pilgrims by Cheryl Harness
More fast and easy extension activities to go with Sonlight’s HBL K program, this book doesn’t have page numbers or chapters, so I just listed the activities in the order they tie into the book, with fictional page numbers, with the very first inside page being page 1. For the last few pages, there was mostly just information, so I tried to find other things that would tie in instead.

We are making a diorama out of legos, but here is an idea for another type of diorama. I will try to post pictures a little later.
From pages 32 on, it is hard to find videos and movies that describe each group at a child’s level, so instead I have put a little book series I thought you might enjoy.
