    As salaam alaikum, happy Jummah. So my day starts off with me over-sleeping. I was working lat on The Night at the Museum (Battle of Smithsonian) unit study. I think it is the perfect thing! This movie brought so many characters to life and me being me, I had to make it into a project.

    I found a great blog who decided to do a Night at the Museum unit also. http://elementaryspirits.com/ They even have a list of historical characters form the movies that makes for great research, such as: Attila the Hun, The Tuskegee airmen, Easter Island, and Ivan the terrible. She has great ideas and I’m sure my son will love it also. He is also super excited. I have created a list of characters that would be great to do this unit study on that tie in with the movie.

The Civil War

Teddy Roosevelt

Al Capone

Amelia Earhart

Octavian

Sacagawea

Albert Einstein

The Thinker and Kahmunah

Abe Lincoln

George Foreman (Bio)

Ben Stiller (Bio)

    I would suggest doing the unit and research before watching the movie. When your child/children knows even the basics of the historical characters, it makes watching the movies afterward very interesting and rewarding.

    I hope this post was helpful. If you have any suggestions for this or other unit studies, or if you have any questions, just drop me a comment. Thanks in advance, MahoganyMuslimah
