Calvert 2nd Grade History & Geography presents an introductory history of the United States of America. Ten engaging workbooks present lessons on the trail of the Native Americans, the different branches of the government, westward expansion, and America's pioneers. The course also includes a comprehensive study of maps. Since each self-paced unit can be completed in as little as three to four weeks, students experience a sense of accomplishment at the completion of each one! In addition, regular self tests and an end-of-unit test provide assessment of student progress. An essential teacher's guide is included to provide important teaching supplements, such as instructional notes and answer keys, as well as additional resources and activities.
