Social Studies Unit - North and South America

by Kathryn L. Wall, Ph.D.

In this unit, you'll explore the political systems, histories, economic systems, and cultures of North America and South America. During this journey through the western hemisphere, you'll discover the geography of two continents, explore the connections between the past and the present day, compare different forms of government, learn about the economic connections between nations, and consider the cultural traditions of North and South American peoples through holidays, foods, music, and crafts. For your final project, you'll host an embassy reception to teach others about the country of your choice or create a trivia card game to test your knowledge of the diverse and interesting countries of these two continents.

This unit can be used independently, but it is designed to be used concurrently with the literature unit for Esperanza Rising.

This package includes free online access to your curriculum, Learning Gates, and Portfolio for 18 months.
