A One Year Culture & History-Based Program Designed for 5th-8th Grades
Delve into our American culture, from the struggle of the Civil War, and how it
changed our national identity, to the toppling of the twin towers on September
11th, and how this has changed today’s world. Along the way, you’ll discover the
westward-moving, invention-creating, city-building, store-establishing,
business-making, future-loving, fad-introducing American people that created a
new American culture.
As you journey along, you’ll enjoy the many learning experiences that will help
your student get to know our American culture. They’ll conduct secret missions,
help with the war effort, be a robber baron for a day, sing cowboy songs, live
the pioneer life, design a city tenement, host a 50’s night, and create their
own newfangled fad!
Not only will your student love the hands-on activities we’ve scheduled for you,
they’ll also create their own American culture magazine for their
“Make-Your-Own” pages this year. They’ll create articles and headlines on the
key events and cultural changes going on around America. Students will also get
to study later American painters, and discover the lives of the presidents who
Best of all, the books in this program are just outstanding! One book takes you
into the inner workings of the financial world during the Great Depression,
while another transports you to Lincoln’s side as he uses the latest Civil
War-era technology. Still another gains you inside access to World War II
spying, and another title puts you in Dallas on the day President Kennedy was
shot. You’ll want to venture inside these books!
