The idea of this class (and all three history classes in rotation for 3–5 graders) is for students to have a solid overview of American history before they enter middle school. We will not go in depth on any topic but instead learn about one event or person each week as we build a timeline from the time of the colonists to the events of the Civil War and Westward Expansion. Your child will gain a solid understanding of the events that took place and the people that influenced our country during this time. There will be little homework as we will learn about our topic in class and then have a hands-on activity to help solidify understanding and retention. A syllabus with all topics will be sent home at the beginning of the year, so that parents can add further learning at home as desired on each topic as it is taught.

This class takes students on a journey of learning all the way from the first inhabitants of our state to Michigan today in the 21st century. It is a class that will give your child so much insight into where they live as they grow up. Many adults do not know much of what your child will learn and discover throughout the year. "Why is Detroit named Detroit? What were the original Native American tribes of our state? Who explored our state and why? What counties, cities, and rivers have Native American names? How was the Mackinac Bridge built? How do the Soo Locks work?" These and so many more fun things are part of our learning! Michigan history truly comes alive for the children in this class. This class has minimal homework, approximately 30 minutes per week.
