Students will build comprehension skills as they learn about important historic events and people of the early 19th Century.
Twenty stories about the growing pains of the U.S. and significant events that occurred in other parts of the world are presented. From “Lewis and Clark Explore the West” in 1804 to “Samuel Morse: The Telegraph” in 1844, students will be exposed to sound historical information.
Overall, this unit presents an integrated view by including achievements in science, music, world events, and exploration. Comprehension questions follow each story. Time-line activities are included so students can visualize the interaction of events.
