US History video curriculum


All History For Humans videos teach through the power of story to make the history relevant and meaningful to students. In the first lesson, students learn about the terrible difficulties the English faced settling at Jamestown and how tobacco and leadership saved the colony from disaster. In the second video-lesson, students discover what drove the Pilgrims and Puritans to seek religious freedom and a new destiny in America and the major characteristics of the New England colonies. Lastly, students learn how William Penn and the Quakers tried to create a 'Holy Experiment' of liberal government, fair treatment to Indians, and religious tolerance while settling the rich lands of Pennsylvania and the challenges they faced doing so.  

***The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.
