Liberty Seeds

We all learn about the Revolutionary War in school: where it was fought, who fired the first shots and Paul Revere’s famous ride. But is what we learn in school the whole story, or in some cases, even the real story?

 

The Revolutionary War Veterans Association (RWVA) is a group of volunteers that will shed new light on the story of how our nation was born — the story that historians have discovered. The RWVA representatives will bring the events of April 19, 1775, a day that some call the most important day in American history, to life. Along the way, they’ll reveal some historical facts that might surprise you, like:

  • Who fired the famous “Shot Heard Round the World?”
  • What’s the name of the obscure location where the Revolutionary War really began?
  • How were colonists able to break the British line at Concord’s North Bridge in under 2 minutes?

The RWVA invites you to experience a LibertySeed event, where they will recount the happenings leading up to the birth of our nation

Accompanying HOME Unit Study: The Province of Maine During the Revolutionary War

 

"Maine Rocks" Geology Class

Dr. Marcus Ross from Cornerstone Education Supplies eturns with an all new class, "Maine Rocks."

 

The State of Maine is anything but common in terms of its geology! From the rocky coastal plain to the highlands of the Applachians, Maine’s geography has been shaped by the types of rocks beneath the surface and the forces of glaciers above the ground.

 

These rocks were formed and shaped during Creation Week, the Flood, and also after the Flood. Along the way, we’ll survey the three major rock groups (igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic) and how they connect to Maine’s landscape. This class will get you to see your home in a brand new way!

 

Make the class even more hands-on fun! Purchase Cornerstone’s Introductory Rock Kit and add on the Geology Testing Kit for hands-on geology activities
