This high shool-based study of Anne of Green Gables and her world and times is directed primarily at girls. While boys may enjoy aspects of it, the activities (making homemade ice cream and having a social, flower pounding, etc.) probably won't be as appealing to them. At the same time, building on Anne's famous love of learning, this is a very informative volume, with facts and suggested readings conerning everything from anatomy to cooking to Oliver Wendell Holmes. It also covers British history, Canadian history (it actually exists), the poetry Anne loved to read, background information on Lucy Maud Montgomery, etc. While there is an entire Anne of Green Gables series of books, this unit study covers only the first (and most famous) one. The revised edition contains more activities, daily lesson plans, and two extensive appendices to aid further study.
