Elementary School Curriculum. Second and Third Years: Grade III. History and Geography: Early Trade and Discovery


by Mildred I. Batchelder 1906

EARLY TRADE AND DISCOVERY In the first and second grades, the problems of food, shelter, and clothing are considered in the hunting, fishing, pastoral, and agricultural stages of the development of civilization. In the third grade, the children are introduced to some of the activities of the people who lived at the time when trade and discovery were developing. Here again they are led to participate in the problems that these people had to solve. The children of this grade are eager for adventure by sea or land. Moreover they like to know that there is an element of truth in these adventures. Therefore, the era of early trade and discovery which follows the pastoral and agricultural stage of the second grade coincides with the sympathies and inclinations of the third-year pupil. Because at this time he begins to demand the "true story," we give this era a more definite basis by using Phoenicia, the home of the ancient traders, as a background.
