  1. My favorite period of American History that I've studied with my girls would have to be colonial times. They both enjoyed the hands-on fun.

  2. My favorite part of American History is colonial times too. I spent a summer in Williamsburg when I was in college, honeymooned there about five years later, and spent my 25th wedding anniversary there as well. I cannot get enough of the place and love learning about the formation of our country.

  3. Colonial times is my favorite. We live only minutes away from Colonial Williamsburg. My boys love history especially my teen. They love the hands on.

  4. I think like the Old West times would be my favorite.
