gingersmom Posted June 13, 2009 Share Posted June 13, 2009 I am beginning my 3rd year homeschooling my son who is going into 4th grade. He is the type of child who loves learnig about everything. And history is one of his favorite subjects. For 3rd grade we did a year long study of the presidents and governments. We also learned about different countries, antarctica, alaska (began with a discussion of the Iditarod and took a life of its own). In 2nd grade we learned about the pilgrims and declaration of independence and boston tea party, etc. I pretty much go wherever he wants to go. For 4th grade I was thinking of doing a year long study of the states, with detours to learn about the statue of liberty, mount rushmore, etc. On the other hand I was thinking of using Pearson Learning Core Knowledge grade 4 which covers Using Maps; World Mountains; Europe in the Middle Ages*; The Spread of Islam; African Kingdoms; Dynasties of China; The American Revolution*; The United States Constitution*; Early Presidents: Washington through Jackson; and American Reformers. I'm so confused!!! Any thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
