Product Details

This course follows the westward expansion of the new nation. It covers the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and successful U.S. efforts to acquire Texas and the West from Mexico.The Elementary U.S. History series is designed to bring history alive to the Elementary School student by relating books, art projects and research to the periods of history being studied. This new American history series stresses physical geography, trade and communication routes, and the ideas and accomplishments of individuals in American history.History is a difficult subject to provide with adequate substance and relevant activities in a classroom setting. To ensure adequate handling of these, a history project with literature is included in each course: the student reads a book from the list provided (history, biography, historical fiction) corresponding to the period under study and does a project to relate the two. The project might include writing a scene for a play, creating a painting, a song or poem, or a display. Each of the eight courses in the series includes several data sheets that focus on specific topics.A commercial history text is used for illustrations and maps and enrichment on the topics that are emphasized. (Excellent maps and illustrations in the text are provided by National Geographic.)
