Horn Book Kit (U.S. History)


Horn books were frequently used by colonial children who were learning their letters or memorizing prayers. The most common horn book artifacts we have feature the alphabet or the Lord’s Prayer. You can write either of these or a poem or message of your choice on your horn book paper and create a replica horn book, just like children in Jamestown would have used to study.
