Category Description for Our Golden California:

A very comprehensive state study of California history and geography. Twenty chapters progress from Native Americans to the present day and include California geography, exploration, Spanish occupation, missions, settlement, Mexican rule, fur traders, the Mexican War, Gold Rush, statehood, transportation, economy, development, industry, growth, and government, among other topics. The thick worktext is extremely readable. Paper is high-quality, print is large, and numerous black-and-white illustrations, photographs and maps increase visual interest. Reading sections are sized about right for this grade level. Each chapter ends with Review questions to reinforce the reading and test for basic comprehension. Thought questions follow and require a little deeper level of understanding and analysis to answer. Each chapter also includes a History Notebook assignment. These assignments are meant to be completed and compiled in a notebook as an ongoing project for the study. The Teacher's Guidebook contains additional teaching/activity suggestions, tests, and answer keys.

I was looking for a textbook to use as a scope and sequence for doing a california history and westward expansion unit study for our history this year. This one is affordable, is from a christian perspective and it's actually what my mom used with us growing up which is fun. :) just a newer edition.

Buyers should be aware that this is a Caucasian Christian-based history book The book states that the student will learn about "our forefathers the Pilgrims" and "the plan that God had for us in the California Story" Interestingly Billy Graham has an entire page written about his life and work while migrant worker's rights advocate Cesar Chavez gets a passing mention in one small paragraphMy gripe about this book is the superflous use of exclamation marks and babyish narrative "We have a big country that stretches from the East coast to the West!" "Most of them [wanderers from Asia] did not stop for long in the frozen North Br-rr! Think how cold that would be!"The book includes review sheets thought questions and report assignments at the end of each chapter; activites that are clearly above the grade level of a child who would enjoy reading sentences that sound really exciting like this!
