As a part of the TOS Homeschool Crew we were recently given the opportunity to review a Tomahawk Kit from the Corps of Rediscovery.
You can find the tomahawk kit here for a very reasonable $5.50.
We are right in the middle of our study on frontiersmen in American History so the tomahawk fit in perfectly with our History lessons. Paul is also a HUGE Braves Baseball fan so a tomahawk was fitting for that as well. He loved this project. It was very easy for him to complete with a little supervision from me. All the pieces that were needed were included in the kit...except for the paint if you choose to paint it, which we chose not to do. The instructions were very simple and easy to follow for a bright 9 year old. I think 8 or 9 would be the youngest that would be able to complete this project mostly independently. The tomahawk was well made and lots of fun for the kids to play with. You can also purchase the Tomahawk as part of an American Indian Package, as a part of the Frontier Craft Pack, or as a part of the Lewis and Clark Expedition Study Pack. I think all of these kits would be a wonderful addition to a History Curriculum or as a quick unit study on their own.
You can also find many other project kits for your History studies at Corps of Rediscovery site.
