Teacher's Guide


The Teacher's Guide gives detailed information about what will be covered in the US Trek, replacing that with detailed information about what has been covered after the fact.

Note that given the K-3 emphasis on holidays and important people from history, we are providing a separate listing under each of these headings for what will be covered in the special K-6 section of the website as it relates to these holidays and people.

The content for the 4th-6th graders in the special K-6 section and for the 7th-12th graders will address the same themes and are therefore listed here together. The 4th-6th content that will be available will simply be abridged and age-appropriate.
