Students will be able to explain the women's suffrage movements. Finally, students will be able to identify what life was like for a child growing up in America in 1904. 
I already taught this class for my daughter's homeschooling co-op class, and It was very well received! My children love American Girl Dolls and their books. I love teaching History, so it is a perfect match! 
There is no homework. There will be a few worksheets that parents can print off. There will also be some supplies craft supplies needed for the last class. 
Students will need:  
Worksheets that will be posted in the classroom. 
A printable that will be posted in the classroom
pencil, crayons or markers
thick craft foam: brown, white and red
hole punch
assorted beads and/or buttons to decorate the gingerbread house
white puffy paint 
a glue gun
The students will be assessed on class participation. 
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
If your child is not confident using a glue gun, you may need to sit with him/her for class #3.
