Mix-ins for Monday: American History Culmination

Happy Father’s Day to all the Papa Bears out there! We have arrived at the final week of school and summer vacay awaits. For our Mix-ins for Monday today we have put together a collection of videos highlighting some of what we have studied this year and some just for fun.

American History Videos:

*Parents, please preview for your students first.

50 States and Capitals Song | Get this catchy song stuck in your head as you learn the states and capitals.

Was MLK’s “I Have A Dream” Speech Improvised? | A short video telling the story of this impactful speech.

Virtual U.S. Capital Tour | Take a tour of our nation’s capital.

“The Hill We Climb” by Amanda Gorman | Our students have studied and memorized many famous American speeches and poems this year. Perhaps someday this poem will be one they memorize too.

Roanoke | A favorite silly video from this year about the lost colony of Roanoke.


How to Turn Milk into Stone | Our Primary students did this experiment. Give it a try for some summer entertainment. It only takes 2 simple ingredients.

Sherlock Holmes – The Blue Carbuncle | If your students enjoyed our reading of Sherlock Holmes this last trimester, they may enjoy this short scene from The Blue Carbuncle.
