North Dakota: People Living on the Land


To help meet grade 8 course requirements, the North Dakota Studies program at the State Historical Society provides an entirely web based course titled North Dakota: People Living on the Land. This course is divided into four units and includes more than 90 topics on the history of North Dakota and is complemented with documents, photographs, maps, and films. The curriculum covers the place that is today North Dakota from about 500 million years ago to the late twentieth century. The topics range from the formation of soil to the recent oil boom; from the quarrying of flint to Bobcat manufacturing. The course is written for grade 8 students, but adult readers, too, will find much interesting information, some of it never before published, in North Dakota: People Living on the Land.
