All our videos teach through the power of story to make history relevant and interesting for students. In this lesson, students learn about how Roosevelt rose to power, his progressive reforms, and how John Muir convinced him to go on a crusade to save America’s most precious national treasures in this progressive era lesson. It tells the amazing story of how Roosevelt and Muir spent three days camping in Yosemite Valley and ended up discussing the future of conservation in America and the National Parks Service. The video though also interweaves essential history standards like Roosevelt's rise to the presidency, his progressive reforms like trust-busting, the Meat Inspection Act and more in a way students won't forget! ✅ The lessons cover state-standards while making sure the content is still interesting.
