Unit Study Adventures
Four-Week Unit Study
Grades K - 12
This study covers the early expansion of our country, from thirteen colonies to the massive move westward along the Oregon Trail. Topics include:
- Daily lives of the pioneers, including life on the trail.
- What was happening in the rest of the world.
- American history.
- United States geography.
- North American Indians.
- Transportation in early America.
Come follow the pioneers across America, from the eastern seaboard to the Piedmont, through the Appalachians, past the Mississippi, and on to the prairies and the far west. Let's learn about their amazing endurance and perseverance, their commitment and their faith. The Pioneers Timeline is included, printable for each student's notebook.
The Pioneers unit is in electronic format, meaning your children can work through the study interactively, clicking on the links in each lesson to further their own investigation. Each day's lesson plan has been written in two levels: Lower Level (elementary grades) and Upper Level (junior/senior high grades), enabling the whole family to learn together!
