Students will explore United States History from 1853 - 1904.
- French Influence/New Orleans - Meet Cecile
- Swedish Immigration - Meet Kirsten
- Civil War/Underground Railroad - Meet Addy
- Industrial Revolution - Meet Samantha
We plan to include the historical events of the country for the time studied. In addition, we will explore the culture, lifestyles, geography and inventions of the time. Students will take short comprehension quizzes, create timelines, create a map and be involved with one project during the semester, which the students will present. We also begin to talk about some literary terms such as character, setting and conflict as they are used in literary analysis.
Please note: All the Exploring American History through the American Girls are independent of one another. You can take them in ANY order. You can join at any time. Please just read the time periods/historical girls we are covering so that you can make sure this is not a repeat class for your child.
Deadline for Registration is March 15, 2019.
