History and Geography 500 continues the process of developing in students an understanding of and appreciation for God’s activity as seen in the record of man and his relationships. It focuses on two major areas, American History & Geography. The 5th grade homeschool curriculum covers American History from early exploration through the Reconstruction, with special emphasis given to inventions and technology of the 19th and early 20th centuries, and geography of the Americas, with special emphasis on Mexico, Canada, and U.S. regional geography. These areas of focus target four major content strands: History, Geography, Government and Citizenship, and Social Studies Skills.

Travel through time with your students as they explore the changing face of America beginning with early exploration, through colonization and the Civil War, and into the current millennium. As part of this online curriculum, students will also learn about the nation’s closest continental and island neighbors.
