Class V History
In Class V, students study United States history beginning with the first inhabitants of the American continent and their lasting influences. Students then journey through the thirteen colonies and discover how the present form of government evolved. Next, students study the causes and effects of the American Revolution and learn about the new republic from the Articles of Confederation through the ratification of the United States Constitution. Famous Americans are brought to life during Winter Term as students research individuals who have made lasting impressions on the country. Study then shifts to the Westward expansion followed by the conflicts and events that led to the Civil War, along with the war itself.
