3rd & 4th grade History through Literature
Course Description: In History Through Literature 3-4 students will study the period of World history from 1600-1850. This class covers early modern times around the world from the earliest explorers of the New World to the American Gold Rush. We’ll study the history of Europe through kings, queens, wars and plagues; discover the mysterious emperors of the Imperial East and learn about Napoleon’s wars; discuss the tragedies of slavery and the Trail of Tears in America; follow along with Lewis and Clark as they lead their expedition to explore the west, and so much in between. Susan Wise Bauer’s engaging narrative, The Story of the World, is designed as a read aloud for parents and students to enjoy together. Students will read selections at home with parents and complete weekly assignments from the student activity guide and test booklet to reinforce class discussions and activities.
