Annie Oakley


According to Special Days in August (https://stilllearningsomethingnew.com/2015/07/25/special-days-in-august-2015-2/), Annie Oakley was born Aug. 13, 1860.  We had not studied her before, so this day last year, I thought we should add her to our timeline.  As it turned out, our E (homeschool graduate) and a family friend happened to be around the house and decided to join us for our lessons.  You know it’s a great study when the kids who are not required to have “school” join in for the learning!  Below are the online resources we used as we learned, were entertained, and inspired by this bold and fabulous lady!
