Elementary School Curriculum. Second and Third Years: Grade III. History and Geograpy: Home History and Home Geography


by Mildred I. Batchelder 1906

Home History and Home Geography are closely related, as there is necessarily constant comparison between the past and the present. The work in Home History includes the arrival of the first traders on Manhattan Island and the settlement of the Dutch town of New Amsterdam. As far as possible the biographical side is made prominent, but the little colony boasted few men of note. The growth of the town is traced and certain manners and customs of that day compared with ours. In cosmopolitan New York we cannot begin too early to foster a personal regard for the city itself. Home History, so called, with its cherishing of old associations, seems to accomplish this. Captain Block headed one of the companies which came over to trade with the Indians. Captain Block was a sturdy Dutchman whose indomitable courage came to the front when his good ship Tiger with a cargo of furs, was burned to the water's edge. Because of this disaster he and his crew were obliged to partake of the hospitality of the red man for the winter. This gives an excellent point of departure for studying the ways of the Manhattan Indian and learning how his environment has made him different from the tribes of the West.
