It is pretty in depth what these kids are to learn
HOWEVER it all depends on the teachers interest or knowledge on how in depth
the class is taught> My kids go to a k-6 school and when we share our
knowledge of war of 1812 the teachers are clueless and in awe 0f our
I am reading my kids the story of Tecumsuh (not the best bed time story when
the Indians burn a whiteman after shooting him to finish him off)However
they are enjoying the other parts of the story (It is geared to kids)
Whenever my kids grade 1 &3 have some kind of assignment if I can I try to
put it into War of 1812 theme.
Such as music from another culture she brought in a drum and fife tape.
Musical instrument too bring in was their fife.
Unfortunately schools are only as good as their teachers.
