American History in a Box
“American History in a Box” home courses provide students with a basic foundation for understanding the main concepts, people, and events in American history. The books, writing prompts, games, and activities are selected based upon the National Common Core Standards (corestandards.org) and the Virginia Standards of Learning (www.doe.virginia.org). The activity book promotes core learning by pulling together information gleaned from reading and research into fun and educational activities. Upon completion of the course, students are assessed based on Common Core expectations for their specific grade level. Our consultants will provide you with a one-page assessment with mastery learning suggestions for future study.
We created the box with the intention that children will be able to read and complete most of the activities independently. The writing prompts are pulled from Common Core Standards recommendations and the activities support SOL Standards learning. The concept list at the end is for parents to use during discussions about the time periods in American History.
The box includes:
- A United States Atlas for Kids
- Four books of historical fiction,
- Twelve non-fiction books,
- 4 – 5 American History puzzles and games
- Basic supplies
- Activity Book divided the following themes: Geography, Exploration and Discovery, Colonialism, Native Americans, Immigration, Important People, American Holidays.
- A final assessment and extended mastery-learning plan.
