August 17 is Davy Crockett's Birthday!

Tuesday, August 17, 2010 will be the date of Davy Crockett's 224th birthday.  It's the perfect time to celebrate this American hero with our Davy Crockett Download N Go.  Here's what the DNG website has to say about Davy Crockett:

There are heroes in history we should take to heart
and share with our children . . .This is one of them!

Davy Crockett: a pioneer, hunter, storyteller, soldier,
legislator, patriot, and legend of the Old West . . .

Let’s find out about “The King of the Wild Frontier”!

Day 1: Who Was Davy Crockett?
Day 2: People and Places in Davy Crockett’s Life
Day 3: Science Secrets of the Frontier
Day 4: Lessons to Learn From Davy Crockett
Day 5: Remembering Davy Crockett

History is skipping over a few of our heroes, and they are slowly fading away. That doesn’t have to happen when you are in charge of your homeschool!

Davy Crockett is one of those patriot heroes that you’ll want your children to know about and remember. This brave frontiersman, family man, congressman, and man of integrity loved to stand up for what he believed was right, even when that was not an easy thing to do.

“Be always sure you are right—then go ahead.”
—Davy Crockett

And as a special treat, the lapbook for Davy Crockett has been revised.  It's better than ever!

If you happen to live near East Tennessee, this Saturday, August 14,  there will be a celebration of Crockett's birthday at the Crockett Tavern Museum in Morristown!
