A Simple One-Year History & Science Program for Kindergarten or 1st Grade
In a twinkling, your student will be transported to stops all over the world,
peeking in on some of the most interesting events in world history. You’ll make
visits to the ancient world and see the land of the Egyptians, the palaces of
Mesopotamian kings, and the incredible culture of the Greeks. You’ll continue on
to drop into a Roman coliseum, work on the Great Wall of China, and tour the
castles of medieval times.
From there, you’ll head into a journey through changing times as new
discoveries open the land called America, and watch as colonists tame this new
land, and inventors create new machines. You’ll end your travels by learning
about Victorian times, topsy-turvy world-changing wars, and the race into outer
space. It’s a whirlwind trip through history! Best of all, your student will
relish one special part of this program: HIDEAWAYS!
The opportunity to create his or her own learning play spaces will fascinate your child. Like the fun
of playing tent under blankets, your student will create three-dimensional play
spaces that help them re-enact what they are learning. Students can pull
together their own Civil War fort, “build” a pyramid, run a colonial store, or
go to sea in a (bathtub) WWII submarine. So much fun!
All along the way, they’ll also complete simple activities and crafts, work
on a Bible memorization program, complete a science program and master
grade-level skills. This simple program is designed to suit young learners and
fill about half a day when you add a suitable language arts program.
EVEN EASIER TO USE! - Each week additional weblinks and specific library suggestions from the "You Wouldn’t Want to Be . . ." picture book series provide even more fun for young learners. These fantastic books illustrate times and places in history.
