The Fifth Grade American History Discussion Questions for our Supplemental Reading Set features teaching guidelines and discussion questions for each of the novels and biographies found in our Fifth Grade American/Modern Studies Supplemental Reading Set.
We focus on geography in grades 3-6 in our Classical Core Curriculum because it is beneficial for students to know where the historical events they study take place in the context of each other. But we realize that the grammar school years are a great time to introduce American history too. So we offer four sets of American biographies and novels as a supplement to our 3rd through 6th grade Classical Core Curriculum packages.
The Fifth Grade American History Set includes:
- The Landing of the Pilgrims
- Madeleine Takes Command
- The Witchcraft of Salem Village
- Ben Franklin of Old Philadelphia
- The American Revolution
- Guns for General Washington
- Calico Bush
These books were carefully chosen to cover a variety of time periods and characters, and they are on a reading level for independent reading by students. Our intention is that young students read and enjoy these books to begin their study of American history. Explore more from Memoria Press’ complete library of American & Modern studies here.
