American History in a Box LIVE
In 2018 we partnered with EFM business Afterschoolplans.com to bring their fun-filled, standards-based American History in A Box to the hands of our students. These boxes have been developed by a certified EFM American History teacher and include books, puzzles and games for a fun, interactive way to guide students along US Education Standards. As students complete the American History in a Box activity book, they email their work to their Twiga Tutors teacher. Students meet Live with their teacher once a month for further discussion and review. This course is 3 months and available for K-8 students. It includes 120 Live Session Minutes with a certified American teacher. Enroll Now!
Hands-On U.S. History
Looking for a U.S. History course that is 100% hands-on, unplugged, inquiry-based, aligned to education standards and fun? Welcome to Hands-On U.S. History for Grades K-12! Our teachers develop monthly activities based on your child’s interests so they can explore, research and create hands-on U.S. History projects. Students work one hour a week including a weekly 15-minute Live Session with their teacher to discuss progress, ask questions and identify next steps. Examples of projects include planning a trip around the United States, creating the social media profiles of American historical figures, or writing a newspaper article based on three interviews with people who were alive during the Vietnam War.
Hands-On U.S. History includes a personalized USA Discovery Kit mailed monthly to your door with books, games and more to inspire and delight each and every student.
