September 2015

Unit 2 begins with students investigating the first English attempts to colonize North America (Roanoke, Jamestown, and Plimoth...yes, that is spelled correctly). ;-)  We will also discuss the founding of the 13 British colonies.  U.S. History classes will take time out of the regular schedule on September 17 for Constitution Day and at the end of the month for Freedom Week.  During this week we will investigate the importance of America's Founding documents (e.g., Declaration of Independence/U.S. Constitution). 

Unit 2 Test on Friday, September 18, 2015.
