Paths of Settlement is the second step on the Trail Guide to Learning. Key events studied include the Colonial Period, the Revolutionary War, the war of 1812, the Civil War, and Westward Expansion. Learn about the accomplishments of great Americans such as George Washington and Patrick Henry who built upon the trial blazed by brave explorers. Their actions teach us the principles of freedom and citizenship - founding and expanding our country, strengthening us in times of war and binding us together in times of struggle. This full one-year course is targeted for grades 4-6, but the lessons can be easily adapted for 3rd and 7th grades, as well.
Activities include period crafts, cooking, watercolor painting, state studies, making a wind gauge, and more.
The second edition is a fully revamped version with improvements, updated games, and some color pages. It includes six books corresponding to each of the six units. Each book includes a section of color and perforated pages with activities, instructions, and game cards in the back. Student pages are available separately in your choice of printed pages by unit and grade, or all grades in digital format.
