At the onset of the year the children learn all about the founding of our country from three important U.S. documents (The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights), to the early settlers, to the US flag, to the location of the US regions and states. Our geography study is launched by learning all about the globe with a focus on the seven continents and five oceans. From there we focus on the United States of America.
The focus is on our people, history and economy.
  • The Beginnings of our Country
