Taraleigh Davis will also be teaching Elementary and Middle School World History/Geography. You can see her bio on yesterdays post. My kids are very much looking forward to her classes this year. Here is one of them:
Upper Elementary/Middle (4-8) (History/Geography)
Take a trip starting in the South Pacific, through Australia, up to Japan, through southeast Asia, India, China, the Middle East and, eventually, to North Africa. This is a cultural study that acquaints your children with the fascinating peoples and nations of the East. As we move from region to region,we will study a subset of history at each stop and get lots of practice researching and mapping.
Eastern Hemisphere Student Exploration Pages, Sonlight
2011 World Book Encyclopedia DVD
Most of the tutoring time will be spent doing hands on activities & projects. I gather all the supplies needed and do all the clean up! We also will be completing Student Exploration Pages, Maps, and a timeline. The student will be required to complete assignments and research projects.
This class was inspired by Sonlight Core F. It is NOT a requirement for this class, but I will be sending home reading assignments and suggested library books if you are interested in spending more time on this at home.
