Can I use this course with an older/younger student?
Yes. While America’s Story is designed for upper elementary students (grades 3 through 6), it is also very flexible and can be used with younger/older students. Younger students may require additional teacher involvement, while older students may complete additional activities or research projects to increase the difficulty of the course.
I have two or more students using this course together. What do I need to purchase?
It’s recommended that you purchase additional copies of the Teacher Guide. While the Student Textbook could easily be shared between students, the Teacher Guide contains all of the consumable worksheets your students will need to complete the course. Purchasing an additional copy means each student will have worksheets available and ready for use.
Do we have to start in America’s Story 1?
No. Each volume in America’s Story builds upon the next and creates a timeline of American history from the ancient Americas to modern times; however, each volume also stands alone, allowing your student to start and stop in any volume.
