What Your Child is Learning in Unit 1: "Listen to the Land"

Your child will focus on some of the United States' natural landscapes: ocean coasts, rivers, prairies, forests, mountains, and deserts. He or she will understand how people use the land and water around them, both in the past and in the present. Your child will also learn how plants and animals have adjusted over time to very cold temperatures and to hot and dry climates.
