Unit 1, Framework of our Nation- September 17, 1789, the Constitution of the United States was ratified and provided the framework of our government and rights to its citizens.  Every year, on September 17, we honor this event by teaching the relevance of the Constitution (since the 17th is a Saturday this year, Constitution Day will be observed this year on the 16th).  We will analyze the Constitution as a living document and guidance for our nation.

Unit 2, The Ancient World & Trade- Throughout history, kingdoms and nations have sought to expand their boundaries for a variety of reasons. In this unit, we started with Rome and examined where our government and laws come from. Then we looked at why and how Rome expanded into one of the largest empires the world has seen; we also compared that with the Chinese empire and ancient Africa. Trade is a huge reason for growth, so we refreshed our knowledge of resources and how they have motivated growth over time.
