I think most states study the state history in fourth grade.  I'm not sure why, but that was the pattern in Oregon and even when I was a little girl in Colorado.  There was another "Michigan" field trip for Zhen's class and I went along for the morning session...  They call it a "Voyageur Encampment"....but they dont' seem to stick all that well to that theme.  This Native American re-enactor really did a lovely job, though.  I hung on his every word.

What a wonderful way to learn the history.

I don't remember when we had CT state history in elementary school as that was so long ago. US history was always one of my favorite subjects.

No recollection whatsoever of learning my state's history. We did reports on individual states in 6th grade, but that was a private school.

I am always amazed by how the History of Saint Petersburg is a separate subject here, not just a small unit. I wonder if that is true in the provinces?

Elizabeth; that is an interesting question. I'll ask Ilya and see what he remembers.
