Early American History
Description: This course serves students in both 5th and 6th grade. Learning about our great nation’s history is an important part of your child’s education. Using the text America the Beautiful: Part 1, 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 the important people and places in which they lived and worked. Each week, students will be reading the text and working on assignments at home. Class time will include activities, discussion, and games that will enrich the text and make learning history fun! This stand alone course compliments the Modern American History, which also serves students in grades 5th and 6th.
