Using the text America the Beautiful, your student will learn about Native Americans, Explorers, the American Revolution, westward expansion, and eventually the Civil War. Each unit includes lessons about these major historical events, as well as important people and the places they lived and worked. Students will be reading and working on assignments each week at home. Class time will include activities, discussions, and games that will enrich the text and make learning history fun!
