    HELPFUL LINKS

    • How to Get Kids Ready to Video-Chat for Online Classes:  Common Sense Media Article
    • Northshore School District has put together quite a lot of home learning resources
    • The Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration is offering free content for students at various grade levels. Take a look here.

    HISTORY LINKS:

    https://kcts9.pbslearningmedia.org/collection/kenburnsclassroom/film/the-west/

    This is a video series found on Ken Burns in The Classroom titled, The West. The series breaks down the original documentary into smaller segments and has learning activities for each. This is not required for students but an opportunity to extend their learning beyond the textbook or even an alternate learning experience. This coincides with our current unit in U.S. History, Westward Expansion. If for some reason the link does not work, students/parents can google: “Ken Burns The West PBS” to find the site.

    The following links will take students to two units of study provided by the Smithsonian Museum. One is on Native American Resistance and the other is on The Mexican-American War. Both relate very well to our unit on Expansion West. These links are meant to provide extension activities and readings for students if they have completed the Expansion West textbook related work they have received.
