Across America: Grade 3&4 Supplement
Inspire an Interest in the United States
Students travel across the fifty states in both time and space in 38 units.
Beginning on the Eastern Seaboard, they travel from state to state to
learn what life was like in the early days of each one. Subjects include
Bible/character, science and health, history/geography, reading, spelling,
expression skills, study/critical thinking skills, math, physical education,
music, and art. All Grade-2 objectives are covered. The reader includes
discussion questions and vocabulary words.
This Supplement (2322) has activities for Grades 3 and 4 for music/art,
Bible/character, science, and history. The reader, American Tales (2307),
contains historical, biographical tales, often built around little-known
facts. The American Tales Activity Guide (2410) adds many more choices
for supplementing your study at these grade levels. We’ve packaged these
three books together (8068) to save you money.
What Else Will I Need?
You can use Across America for just a third or fourth grader alone, but
since this is a supplement, you will need the Grade-2 Teacher’s Manual (2009).
You will need other material for language (e.g., Write Source) and math (e.g.,
Scott Foresman-Addison Wesley Mathematics 3 or Saxon Math 54). The State
Capitols CD and Rummy Roots are referenced throughout the Grade-2 Teacher’s
Manual. These items can be purchased at Amazon.com, (though you can hear
the State Capitols songs and many of the other suggested songs on the Internet).
You can teach students in Grades 1 (2819)
through 4 at the same time using the supplements for Grade 1 and Grades
3&4 along with the Across America: Grade 2 program.
