Get ready for an adventure as you learn about life in America from its Native American culture, to its discovery by Europeans and exciting growth as a nation. Activities are an important part of the studies that capture the interest of younger students, but are overflowing with information that will keep students up to third grade engaged.
Follow in the footsteps of the Lewis and Clark expedition, decode Benedict Arnold’s traitorous message, and meet exciting Americans who fought for freedom, built a canal, or rode for the Pony Express. And the adventure doesn’t stop there. As you read out loud you’ll meet an orphan who changes her life by pretending to be a boy, spend a year with a boy in the wilderness alone, and hop a ship to California gold fields.
Hands-on activities and learning opportunities are laced throughout the program. Your instructor’s guide has oodles of ideas, but in addition, many of your books have instructions on everything from building a keel boat to learning how to measure distance by dead reckoning. We’ve added even more activity resources to your journey!
