    World History

    We are excited to bring the world of  history to your child.    Some sample units of study (subject to change due to student interests)

     

    Prehistoric Times (archaeology, hunters/gatherers, development of agriculture), the first civilizations, early religions, and kingdoms, dynasties, and empires, etc.

     

    Study guides will be given at least 1 week before quizzes/tests.  Please make sure I have your email address or phone number if you would like to be contacted before any tests.

     At home, please encourage your child to share his/her work/progress with you.  It will help them to take pride in their work.
