In Social Studies 4, homeschool students will take a look at American history, starting off with the life of Native Americans, the trials and triumphs of the first European explorers, and the harsh lives of the original colonial settlers.  We will continue our study of United States history as it begins through the Revolutionary War, the pioneering expansion west, the clash with Mexican forces, the problem of slavery and the Civil War, and the Reconstruction.  Swiftly moving into the 20th Century, homeschoolers will examine the Industrial Revolution, both World Wars, the Korean, Vietnam, and Cold Wars, and several political movements since.
