There is no reason why history can't be integrated with math. Historians use a lot of math. Lots of subtraction but percentages, distances, sorting, and geometry! This is an introduction to the idea that math and history belong together!
This lesson assumes students are ready and able to add and subtract using four digit numbers. Students will work on math problems that represent important dates in early American history. Volume 1 focuses on Colonial and Revolutionary American history.
There are two types of timelines for both the Colonial history and the Revolution history. The first timeline is for students who are ready to create their own timeline with no prompts. The second timeline gives the important event while students have to use their math problem with answers to find the right dates.
Finally, for both Colonial history and Revolution history there is a Greater than, Older than section. Students will indicate which number is greater but then they have to switch gears. The numbers are actually dates and they have to find the OLDER date.
This is designed for elementary students but may be best used in grades 2, 3, or 4. This may not be the right math level for first graders.
Volume 2 will hopefully be published around Christmas so please make sure you follow my store so you know when it publishes!
