Summary

Summary

Look at life through the eyes of children who lived during different eras of American history... Experience the thrill of landing in the New World for the first time and the terror of dodging bullets during the American Revolution. Journey to the American West in the back of a covered wagon and discover the horrors of the Civil War. From the technological advances of the early twentieth century to the despair of the Great Depression to the sacrifice of World War II, explore each tumultuous time. Our America reveals the true-life adventures of children (many of whom grew up to become presidents or other important national figures), through features such as historical sidebars, quotes from primary resources like diaries and letters, epigraphs, and art authentic to each era. Supports the national curriculum standards Culture; Time, Continuity, and Change; Individual Development and Identity; Individuals, Groups, and Institutions; Power, Authority, and Governance; Global Connections; and Civic Ideas and Practice as outlined by the National Council for the Social Studies.
