Tuesday/

Wednesday:   Read The Seven-Year War in Chapter 21 of The Story of the World.  After the first reading, give a narration to a parent.  After the narration, answer the questions in the History Notebook.

 

Do the map work.  Note:  The pluses (+) and minuses (-) used below are not a judgment on which side was “good” or “bad.”  The symbols are used to show opposition.

  1. England, France, and Spain fought three wars that began in Europe and then spread to the colonies.  You will use different colors to represent the different wars.  The first was called The War of the Grand Alliance.  In Europe, the English fought the French.  Draw a red + (plus) in England, and a red – (minus) in France.  (Make sure to leave enough room for two or three more +s in each of the countries.)
  2. The War of the Grand Alliance also included fighting in North America, where it was called King William’s War.  The English paid the Iroquois to attack French settlements in North America.  Put a red + and – up near Canada.
  3. The War of Spanish Succession began when Great Britain and the Netherlands declared war on France and Spain.  Put a brown + in Great Britain and the Netherlands, and a brown – in France and Spain.
  4. Over in North America, the War of Spanish Succession was called Queen Anne’s war.  The English captured a French settlement east of Quebec, and the English marched down into Florida and burned a Spanish colony.  Put a brown + near Quebec, and another one down in Florida.
  5. The War of Jenkins’ Ear involved more countries than the other wars you read about in this chapter. The war began between England and Spain, but soon France joined Spain, and Austria joined England.  Put a blue + in England and another in Austria.  Put a blue – in Spain and another in France.  Prussia then joined France, so put a blue – in near Austria.
  6. Again, the fighting trickled over to the colonies.  Put a blue + in Georgia, where the English colonists lived, and a blue – in Florida, where the Spanish still had colonies.

 

                        Copywork: In your neatest handwriting, copy a short excerpt from the poem “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere” in your copywork notebook.

 

Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.

He said to his friend, “If the British march
By land or sea from the town to-night,
Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch
Of the North Church tower as a signal light,–
One if by land, and two if by sea;
And I on the opposite shore will be,
Ready to ride and spread the alarm
Through every Middlesex village and farm,
For the country folk to be up and to arm.”

 

 

The following are suggestions if you and your student are interested.  These are NOT part of the history assignment.

 

Enrichment Ideas for Chapter 21:

If you want to read books that are related to this time period you might want to try: Gulliver in Lilliput retold by Margaret Hodges – This was written during the reign of George I.

The Last of the Mohicans, adapted by Eliza Warren

Why did Jenkins put his ear in rum?  Could he have preserved it in some other way?  Find out.  You will need 4 one quart jars, with lids; rubbing alcohol; salt water (make your own), sugar water (make your own); and 4 uncooked chicken wings.

 

1.  Fill one jar with salt water, one with sugar water, one with rubbing alcohol, and leave one empty.

2.  Put a raw chicken wing in each jar and seal it tightly.  Label the jars with their contents and “DO NOT OPEN!”

3.  Robert Jenkins carried his preserved ear around for eight years before bringing it back to London.  Leave your chicken wings in a warm place for eight days.

4.  After eight days, take the four jars outside.  Open each jar and sniff (from a distance).  Which wing is best preserved?  Did Robert Jenkins make the right decision?  Ask a parent to help you prepare and remove this experiment.
