Tacos, pineapples, blueberries, root beer! These are a few of the things students sample as they explore the states in this one day, 34 week course. Yes, students have heard some of this information in earlier grades, but do they really remember what state the Hoover Dam is in? The course divides the US into groups, studying the five themes of geography for each. Students learn unique characteristics and history of each region while mapping, and memorizing capitals. The homework is minimal and sent home weekly. All work is graded by the teacher.
Students Who Should Take This Class:
Every student interested in learning more about our culture, history, geography, and country should take this class. It counts as a high school elective. It does not fulfill the requirements for U.S. History but makes an excellent additional component to a U.S. History program.
Fees will cover all copies, handouts, foods, and craft supplies.
Supplies Provided by the Student:
Students provide books and will have some events where they will bring food to share with the class.
