This listing includes the physical, printed, and shipped format for our mini-unit Student Book for US History 1. You will also need to purchase the Teacher's Guide in order to do this unit. You can see an in-depth preview of each level in the pictures.
This is the first of a series of at least 3 mini-units that will move chronologically through time to teach United States History from a Christian worldview. Our first unit goes from the beginning to the French and Indian War.
Our mini units are 20 lessons long and designed to go along with and/or supplement our main units. They are not as in-depth or as large as our main units, with only 2 pages in each student book per lesson instead of 5.
Our mini units are designed to be more targeted and focused rather than broad and far-reaching. In this unit students will do weekly vocabulary, narration, work on a project for the unit, work on geography, and if you want, be prompted to work on an optional timeline (no timeline cards are given). The unit project is focused on both Indigenous and colonial art and students will be encouraged to put together a project to show what they learned as well as their own artwork. This is incredibly open-ended, allowing you to choose as a family how in-depth you want to go or where you want to take it.
This unit touches on sensitive topics such as Christopher Columbus, slavery, Thanksgiving, and Indigenous Americans. We have spent countless hours researching and trying to present this information in a way that is empathetic and allows you as the parent to decide the approach you want to take. Due to the sensitive nature of this unit, I have included many more sample readings in the pictures so please be sure to scroll through those and read them carefully before you purchase.
Your printed Teacher's Guide is printed on high end 32 lb (80lb text) paper and coil bound with plastic coils in our warehouse.
