American History in a Box Level IVThis set is for children in grades 6, 7, and 8, although advanced fifth graders will also enjoy it. The box includes an encyclopedia, historical fiction books, non-fiction books, an activity book, and art supplies.

This course looks at major events and time periods from Exploration to Modern Times but explores them in more depth with advanced books and activities. The activity book includes maps, charts, book reviews, illustrations, journaling, analysis, word searches, writing prompts, and comparing and contrasting activities.

We also ask students to write book reports and do a final project with short answer questions and a timeline activity.   For parents, we include a page titled “What your child should know” at the beginning of each section and another titled “Questions to ask your child” at the end of each section. Use these to generate family discussion and debate.

Starting on September 17, we will post a related video, important information and article links, and a discussion question (or send these resources as an email). This online course will run for 12 weeks and will cover the major topics and incorporate the materials in the box. Students who respond to the weekly discussion question nine out of the 12 weeks (by commenting on Facebook or replying to the email) will earn a $25 Amazon Gift Card.
