Settlement Nation Building Unit Package

Things were finally settling into routine for the young USA. Then, less than 30 years after winning independence, conflict with Britain erupted once again in the War of 1812. But despite that, settlers didn’t give up their hopes and dreams, and pushed ever westward away from the Atlantic coast. Looking back at this huge ocean leads to an exploration of salt water, continents, waves, tides, and sedimentary rocks—as well as unseen things like underwater mountain ranges and volcanoes. Great literature immerses readers in this important time of war, building, and expansion. As students copy verses from “The Star Spangled Banner,” they’re challenged to reflect on its rich imagery and outline its rhyme patterns. Along with continued research and mapping of the Southern and Midwest state regions, a study of Presidents begins in this unit. And as always, regional cooking and period songs, games, and activities add depth and focus to an exciting time in America’s history!
