History and Geography 300 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 different types of communities and their local industries, such as farming and fishing, placing special emphasis on a variety of manufacturers in Michigan. Additionally, the homeschool 3rd grade curriculum presents a survey of several 19th and 20th century inventors and inventions. These areas of focus target three major content strands: Geography, History, and Economics. This interactive history and geography course for 3rd grade students sends them across the country as they investigate different types of communities in America. Not only will students learn about different ways of life, but they will also explore how God’s activity can be seen in the record of man throughout history. Throughout the course, students will study the environments, history, and activities of people who rely on different industries for their livelihood. Interactive learning activities, timelines, and maps help students understand the development of these industries while exploring how God works through His people over the course of history.
