Welcome to the New World (8 weeks)

Join us as we adventure along the first explorers in the New World. Discover what enticed these adventurers across oceans in search of gold and glory. Learn about the tribes of First Americans these explorers found in the New World. Dive into the culture of the Inuit people as we study their way of life and successful establishments. We will follow not only Christopher Columbus, but Leif Erikson, Cabot, Balboa, Cortes, and many others. In this class we will try to explore both sides of the story from the perspective of the Native Americans and the early explorers.  


The Essence of Freedom (8 weeks)

Life in the New World wasn’t easy—after a treacherous boat ride, new arrivals faced harsh conditions, new diseases, and the threat of starvation every winter. Despite these odds thousands of people head for America in search of religious freedom, riches, and new adventure. Jump into the settlement at Jamestown and try to solve the mystery of the disappearing Roanoke colony. Learn about important leaders like John Smith, William Penn, and Daniel Boone. We’ll see new establishments from the Puritans, Quakers, and Pilgrims and will also see the creation of the abominable slave trade. In this class, we will discuss the important concept of freedom as we watch America begin to take shape.
