Third Grade Supplemental Reading for American Studies Set
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. What a great way to study American history as a young student – by reading good books and immersing themselves in the lives and culture of those who have made history in America!
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 packages.
Third Grade Set includes:
- Leif the Lucky
- Meet Christopher Columbus
- The Cabin Faced West
- Meet George Washington
- Sarah, Plain and Tall
- Daniel Boone
- Meet Thomas Jefferson
- The Bears on Hemlock Mountain
- Benjamin Franklin
- Meet Abraham Lincoln
- Clara Barton
- Riding the Pony Express
- Helen Keller
- Laura Ingalls Wilder
- A Penny’s Worth of Character
