The Paths of Exploration unit study program (Grades 3-5) teaches American history through the character and experiences of explorers who shaped our nation with their vision, determination, bravery, and sacrifice. It is comprised of six units that cover the discovery of the New World through to Westward Expansion with a focus on the type of thinking, leadership, and skills that were needed to open up the way for others to follow. The primary science focus involves acquiring the basic skills of observation and recording (both drawing and writing), beginning life science through studying the animals and plant life of explored areas. The primary writing focus covers sentences, paragraphs, narrative writing, expository writing, and poetry (cinquain and acrostic). Activities in Exploration such as learning directional terms, tracking, and using semaphore code help students understand the skills essential to an explorer's success. For younger students, the 'Paths of Exploration, Junior' extension is available for students in grades K-2 (sold-separately). Each of the six units covers six weeks; together, all six books comprise a one-year study.
Pages are reproducible for personal and household use only. Loose-leaf, three-hole-punched pages.
