By the Dawn's Early Light: Maryland and the War of 1812

Fourth graders examine the events that lead to the British attack on Baltimore in 1814 and the role of geography in the events of the battle. After a brief discussion on the history of trade routes before 1814 and the War of 1812, they read "By the Dawn's Early Light". Students create a time line of significant events that occurred in the book.

When plans are needed, and time is short, I begin here for help from my colleagues. The framework of lessons, excellent worksheets, and multimedia presentations has proved extremely helpful.
