Wonders of the New World: America, Canada, and Mexico

Wonders of the New World: America, Canada, and Mexico


Students meet the founders, explorers, artists, and revolutionists of the Western world. Tecumseh, Crazy Horse, and Sitting Bull act as role models while students examine Native American history, and tell the story behind Hernán Cortés de Monroy y Pizarro's destruction of the Aztec empire.


Sir Arthur Currie, Benito Juarez, and Franklin D. Roosevelt follow the political and humanitarian changes in the Western World. Students find themselves tapping along to the music of Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, examining the successes of Amelia Earhart and Benjamin Franklin, and gazing wide-eyed at the art of Frida Kahlo and early American artists in the New World. Students step into the past to examine the individuals who built it, and the individuals who gave it life.
