Build Your Library Level 6 - American History, Part 2



Product Description


Continuing your journey through American History begun in Level 5, this year you will complete your study of American History from the Civil War through the modern day. You will use a variety of diverse non-fiction, like An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States for Young People, Heart and Soul: The Story of America and African Americans, and A Different Mirror For Young People: A History of Multicultural America. Witness the tumultuous Civil War, discover what it is like to immigrate to America, learn about the World Wars of the 20th century, and join the protests during women’s suffrage and the Civil Rights movement.  You will continue your study of the 50 states, in order of their statehood. In the final six weeks, your child will use the provided Research Report Guide to write a research report.


You will enjoy an array of captivating literature selections together, and learn the story of America through the eyes and voices of children of diverse backgrounds.  Learn to appreciate what it means to really study history in The Not So Boring Letters of Private Nobody,  learn about life in a small town in the Dakotas in Prairie Lotus, and explore the history of Harlem in The Harlem Charade.

Along with your study of history, we’ll delve into the arts, studying American artists and poets.  You will complete a variety of art projects using the book Great American Artists for Kids and study poetry written by great American poets like Edgar Allan Poe and Maya Angelou.


The science focus this year is earth and space, using Real Science Odyssey Astronomy 2 and Blair Lee’s Climate Change unit — both paired with great living books like George and the Big Bang and World Without Fish.


The 324-page PDF lesson plans include a daily and weekly schedule for 36 weeks of study, a reading list, a set of 10+ narration cards, vocabulary words, discussion questions, and dictation passages tied to the literature reading, memory work projects, timeline figures, 17 activity pages (including map work), research projects, a full 14-page research report guide, art projects, and a 3 day per week schedule for secular Earth and Space science.
