Let your child research the town of Pepin, Wisconsin. Explain that this is the town that was nearest to Laura's family's home in the Big Woods. The following website provides information on Pepin.
Take your child to a historic place in your community. Discuss why the place played an important role in history. When you return from your outing, let your child write about his experience at this place and describe why it is an important part of the community's history.
