History Preview

This is Mrs. Crissy. I wanted to give you a little preview into what we'll be studying this first quarter of our new year!

We'll travel back in time to study the Ancient Egyptians. Have you ever wondered how many gods they worshipped or what they thought happened after they died? There are going to be some surprises for you!

We will also go to Mali and learn about a man by the name of Mansa Musa. He lived in and built the famed City of Gold. Can you imagine living in a city like that?

From Mali we will travel to Ethiopia where we will find out how King Solomon is connected to this ancient land.

From Ethiopia we will go south to the tip of the continent and visit the country of South Africa. There we will learn about a great man who spent decades in prison only to become president of the country when he got out!

We have so much to study and learn! I'm ready for the school year to get started.
