Day & Time: Tuesday 10:45-11:55
Mentor: Missie Shimizu
This class will take you from Queen Elizabeth I’s reign in England thru to the California Gold Rush. From the book: “Explorers discover treasure beneath mountain rocks. Pirates roam the seas. Kings huddle on their thrones, hoping that they will keep their crowns – and their heads. And adventurers sail around the world on tiny wooden ships, risking starvation and treacherous seas to find strange new lands.”
Each class will include a bit of lecture about a chapter (or two) from the book and sometimes a short video will accompany the lecture. One lapbook will be completed per semester along with maps for each chapter and various hands-on crafts.
