U.S. History and Canadian History Activities Outline

I did it! This year's outline is done! I read all about Canadian history, but I still feel like I don't know anything. It was interesting to hear Canada's view on the revolution and the war of 1812. The activities with  * denotes something Canadian.

It was really neat to make this year's outline and use my own website as my main resource.
