American Girl debuted its new historical character Caroline today and whether you plan on buying her (and all her accessories) or not, I think her historical time period is worth learning about! To help you get to know Caroline, I have created a printable word search for you and your dolls to do together today.

Felicity and Matilda learning about Caroline

American Girl Felicity and A Girl for All Time Matilda are eager to find out what happens next in history – as in what came after their time. They are working hard on the Caroline Abbott word search I created for them.

I also encourage you to visit the American Girl website and go to Play and then to the Historical Characters – not only can you learn about Caroline, but you can bring history to life through the activities of all the current and retired American Girl characters.

Also, for those of you who homeschool or are teachers looking for ways to incorporate Caroline’s story and history during the War of 1812, American Girl has a packet specifically for teaching this important chapter – it is put together in conjunction with the Smithsonian and includes resources, question and answers, activities and another printable word puzzle.

Have a great day learning all about Caroline!
