Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Kansas History: Kansas City

Kansas History Students:
Thank you for your Native American Reports. I look forward to reading them.

For your Kansas City report, remember that you don't need to write an essay, just answer each of the five questions with 2-3 sentences. Use the links on the blog and library books or encyclopedia resources that you have. Be careful not to copy straight from your sources. Instead, use this time to practice summarizing information from more than one source.

Kansas City, Kansas is located in Wyandotte County. You will find as you read that the early history of Kansas City, Kansas overlaps considerably with Kansas City, Missouri. The two cities grew up together around the river and have always been closely linked.

Do your best not to get bogged down by irrelevant details. Look for connections with the Sante Fe and Oregon Trail, if any, and look for the slave state-free state battle impacting Kansas City. (More on this in class next week.)

Have a great week!
