Modern Times History Club

Wednesdays 12:00-1:00pm, starting September 16, 2015

Ages 8-11

Leader: Heddi Craft

Activity Rating: Mellow/Tangy



Modern Times History Club is a weekly history club for children around ages 9-11 and their families.  We will use the book Story of the World, Volume 4, The Modern Age by Susan Wise Bauer, as our "spine".  You will need to borrow or purchase a copy of the book or the audio CDs to get the most out of this club.  Below you will find a reading schedule for this year.  You need to have read the chapters indicated prior to the club meeting. Please bring your book to class whenever possible. 

At each meeting, we will begin with a discussion of the text.  Participants should be able to take turns during a sustained discussion of at least twenty minutes.  This class will involve more writing and focus than the previous three years.  We will make craft projects, complete activities, play games, and/or hear additional stories or see additional pictures related to the readings.  We are hoping all club parents will help out as needed.

This club has a $1-2 weekly materials fee in addition to a $2-5 donation per family (no additional donation for supporting members).
