What Your Child is Learning in Unit 4, "The Land Today"

This unit will focus on how we use and protect our natural resources and how we preserve our national heritage. Your child will learn how irrigation brings water to desert areas, and discover ways to help conserve natural resources. He or she will also realize that large cities grew because of industry. Lastly, your child will come to understand how to practice good citizenship, to obey laws, and the ways in which our national holidays and symbols reflect the people and events of our country.
