Students will travel around the world as we study the French revolution, Japan’s opening up to the world, the division of Africa, and the development of Canada and Australia. And of course, there is the bustling Suez canal to be discussed. How did they ever build it? Working in waist deep mud, in fogs of mosquitoes, with bad food and malaria raging. Meanwhile, the Second Reich of Germany is rising. Innovations are also coming fast: the development of international time zones, railroad expansions, the development of the light bulb. The challenges of time, distance, and darkness had been overcome and life would never be the same again!
