Explorers Historical Book Club (Fall 2022)
This class will take learners on a journey through the lives of some of the most famous navigators. To aid us on this journey, each learner will receive a discovery log to add to each week!
During this 10 week class, we will be learning about a historical individual, their lives, and the lands they visited. In class, we will use visual aids and discussion to learn more about each explorer, while out of class, we will learn even more through additional printables, project making, and by reading books from the book series “Who Was”. This series of books brings a lot of powerful information on people, places, and events to children in a straightforward way. These books appeal to both boys and girls and are designed for seasoned readers and reluctant readers alike!
Each week, we will meet to discuss the book we read during the previous week, with the exception of the first week, that is an introduction/activity based class (we will not read books in class). Learners will also be asked to make, and bring, a book based project. This project is meant to spark some creativity, help with those that really benefit from hands on learning, and help bring history to life. Projects can be drawings, paintings, Lego builds, dioramas, a poem, or anything your child would like to create, to express their vision of what they learned about each Wonder. Projects will be shared during the class, which will encourage public speaking.
This course is a 10-lesson course.
This class will meet Thursdays from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM CST beginning on Thursday, September 14th, 2022 and will be ending Thursday, November 16th.
