What Your Child Is Learning in Unit 7 "Civilizations of the Americas"

In the next few weeks, your child will learn about the origins and growth of empires that existed in the Americas at the same time as those he or she has been studying in Europe, Asia, and Africa. Your child will explore four early American civilizations and compare their farming practices, trade, religion, and social classes. He or she will come to understand how historians and archaeologists use physical evidence to study past cultures.
