American History for Young Students II
America is off and running! She's settling in with her new presidents, and must show England (in the War of 1812) how serious she is about being a free nation. The wonderful values in America's Constitution fostered a surge of creativity and hard work, which helped kick off the Industrial Revolution in the U.S., and sent many more pioneers west.
Excitement was in the air: trains were chugging, the Pony Express was zooming, new inventions were changing life, settlers were pouring down the Santa Fe and Oregon Trails, and whole new sections of the West were being added to America! But would American success lead to American pride? Would the people seek God first?
The answer to that question helps children understand how America handled the problems she was facing: displaced Indians, terrible working conditions in many factories, the plight of slaves, enlarging government, and finally the Civil War!

Our Map/Timeline/Report Package provides everything you need to help your child learn when and where events happened: maps, reproducible timeline, timeline markers, mini-timeline cards, report ideas, and more. In addition to creating a timeline with markers, you can, for example, spread the mini-timeline cards across the living-room floor and challenge your student to put them in chronological order. The cards can also be used as flashcards for families on the go, and even as a matching game! This package also includes many historical figures to color, maps to mark, plenty of helpful report forms (Soldier report, country report, etc.), and lesson-planning forms for Mom! (For grades 1 and up.)
