Does your child enjoy learning about the past? Are they intrigued by natural and man-made disasters? If so, this is the class for them!!

Students will explore historical events while participating in lively discussions with their peers.
Students will be reading the books prior to class. We will NOT be reading the book during class time.
Supply list for each bi-weekly activity will be posted in the classroom.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parent Caution- It is highly recommended that your preview these books prior to registering your learner. Disasters, both natural and man made can bring up unsettling questions for kids that you will want to make sure that your learner is ready to address.
