America’s Story ~ Elementary History
From the Ancient Americas to the Great Gold Rush
then onto the Civil War to the Industrial Revolution.
We begin at the infancy of our country and travel through the founding of our great nation, catching glimpses of the men who would become known as the Founding Fathers. Then we travel to the Wild West and then go on to explore the Industrial Revolution. History comes alive in the stories and adventures of explorers, pioneers, and innovators who saw in America the chance to live a dream — to freely worship God, to have the chance to own land, and the search for wealth and opportunities. Discover the people who braved and tamed a wilderness to form communities and states that dot the landscape of this great land we know today. Finally, meet the amazing Americans who changed the world with invention and ingenuity.
We will have fun in this class learning our country’s great story in a gentle and multi-sensory way. A variety of learning methods will be used from story reading, story telling, music, arts and crafts, narration, drama, research, presentations and more. This curriculum is appropriate and adaptable for all elementary ages.
