Thank you for downloading our Hawaii sample pages!
The following pages are from Fifty States Under God, an “I Love History” overview of
all fifty states in the order of statehood for grades 3 through 12.
We think you will enjoy our materials, so we have offered you the opportunity to learn
about Hawaii as you experience the enjoyment of using our book. Included in this sample
are the four pages that cover Hawaii, as well as the full introduction and table of contents
from Fifty States Under God, so you can get an idea what our book is about and how it can
be used.
The full volume of Fifty States Under God includes:
• the lesson schedule and time line
• a progressive map study (not shown in this free sample), so your student can watch
the US map grow and change as new states are being added
• four pages on every state, just like the Hawaii sample pages that follow
• five review lessons (not shown in this free sample), which will teach your student to
list the fifty states in the order of statehood and to identify the capital city, two-letter
postal abbreviation, nickname, and map location of each state
• color state symbol pictures for all fifty states
• all information needed to fill out the workpages in the book
• answer keys for the teacher
In other words, Fifty States Under God is completely self-contained—everything you
need to do the course is included right in the book!
PLEASE NOTE:
We offer a similar book on a lower grade level, Fifty States Under God for Young
Learners, for age 3 through grade 3. This color-cut-and-paste version includes color state
symbol pictures for all fifty states as well as informational cutouts for your student to cut
and paste onto the work pages. This younger version can be used by itself or in correlation
with the older book, allowing you to teach all ages simultaneously. It is also completely
self-contained.
We also offer separate complete courses on each of the fifty states! Most states require
the student to study his own state. Our course on your state will provide more in-depth
information about your state’s history, geography, state symbols, and many other topics,
and will help you satisfy this requirement in a most enjoyable and easy way! We cover all
levels, from age 3 through grade 12, and all levels are correlated so you can teach all ages
simultaneously. All students make their own project notebook using text materials and
state symbol pictures that we provide. For your convenience we have included a copy of
our brochure and order form with this free sample.

INSTRUCTIONS for using your Hawaii sample pages:
1) Read the Hawaii section from the “Lesson Schedule and Time Line” page. This
section gives important and interesting background information about how Hawaii
achieved statehood.
2) Read the Interesting Facts page for Hawaii. This page is just for fun! The bottom
section of this page is optional, in case your student wants to do additional reading
or research to find something interesting about Hawaii on his own.
3) Read and fill in the second and third pages, which are workpages. As you work
through these pages, you will see that the student is instructed to find the requested
information in one of the appendices at the back of the book. Included at the end of
this free sample are the Hawaii sections from the needed appendices, which will
enable your student to fill in the requested information. Pictures of the state
symbols, which the student will cut out and paste into the appropriate boxes, are also
included at the end of this free sample (on the page with the answer keys).
4) Read the fourth page, which we like to call the “I love history” page. In the Fifty
States Under God book, there is an “I love history” page for each state, on which we
discuss a particular event related to that state that is interesting or important either
from a historical perspective or from a Christian perspective.
We hope that your student’s reaction to this sample section will be
“MORE, PLEASE!”
It is our desire to cultivate a love for history in your student, because history is the story of
how God intervenes in the lives of men, working both through men and in spite of men to
accomplish His purposes and to make His salvation known! What a blessed heritage we
have in the United States, our “Fifty States Under God!”

LESSON SCHEDULE AND TIME LINE (Hawaii excerpt)
LESSON 54 - Hawaii (page 235)
1959
The first Hawaiian request for statehood was sent to Congress in 1919. Many such requests were sent
during the following years, but most of them never came to a vote. A number of legislators were afraid
that the citizens of Hawaii would not support America in a time of war. In 1947, Congress took steps
toward approving statehood for Hawaii. But when the Korean War began, statehood was put on the back
burner. Still, Hawaii adopted a constitution in 1950. This constitution was to take effect when the territory
was granted statehood. Finally, on August 21, 1959, Hawaii became the 50th state of the United States.

Historical Sites:
Kalaupapa National Historical Park stands as a memorial to a special
settlement founded in Kalawao in 1866 for a very special reason. People were brought
from all over Hawaii to live at Kalawao. These people had leprosy, or Hansen's Disease,
and had to stay away from other people to keep from spreading their sickness. The
settlement was later moved to Kalaupapa.
Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historic Park is a place where priests of
idol-worship lived long ago. Most early Hawaiians did not believe in God. They
believed in many gods, and there were many ways these gods could be offended. There
were ancient laws or "kapu" which told how not to offend these gods. If someone broke
these laws and incurred the anger of the gods, there was supposedly only one thing he
could do to save his life--run as fast as he could to Pu'uhonua O Honaunau to be
forgiven by a priest. The early Hawaiians went to great lengths to avoid offending
imaginary Gods. The Bible tells us that we have all sinned against the only true God.
Do you know the only way to save your soul from His anger against sin? Run to Jesus
as fast as you can, and be forgiven by the One who died to pay for sin!
The USS Arizona Memorial is built over a battleship, sunk on December 7, 1941,

MORE about Hawaii . . .
State Flag
State Seal
Hawaii’s nickname is Aloha State. Other nicknames include the Pineapple
State, the Paradise of the Pacific, and the Youngest State.
The Hawaiian state flag is the same design that was previously used by the
Kingdom of Hawaii, the Republic of Hawaii, and the Territory of Hawaii. There are
8 stripes which alternate in color between white, red, and blue and which
represent the eight major islands of Hawaii. In the upper corner near the staff is
the Union Jack of Great Britain. This British symbol is included on the flag as a
reminder of the many British advisors of King Kamehameha I.
Hawaii's state seal is the same as the seal for the Republic of Hawaii with a
few minor changes. The seal pictures a shield with a five-pointed yellow star in
the center. The star stands for Hawaii's star on the American flag. Kamehameha
I is pictured on one side of the shield. The goddess of liberty, who holds a
Hawaiian flag, is pictured on the other side of the shield. Above the shield is a
rising sun. Below the seal is a phoenix bird, taro leaves, banana foliage, and sprays
of maidenhair fern. The motto and the words "State of Hawaii, 1959" appear on
the seal.
IMPORTANT PEOPLE RELATED TO HAWAII
In the beginning, the islands of Hawaii were separately
ruled by local chiefs. Chief Kamehameha united all the islands
and organized them under one monarchy, with local chiefs
serving as governors. King Kamehameha I, as he was called,
shipped great quantities of sandalwood to China. Sandalwood
was a fragrant wood that was burned as incense. The money
from the sandalwood was used to buy guns, clothing, ships,
and other European and Asian goods. King Kamehameha I is
remembered by the Hawaiians as a good and kind ruler.
Hawaii prospered under his rule. He was a man of great
physical strength, and yet he was also known for his
compassion.

HAWAII—Missions in Hawaii
When Captain James Cook first visited Hawaii, the Hawaiians practiced an
idolatrous religion of superstition and human sacrifice.
During the 1790’s, American sailing vessels stopped regularly in the
Hawaiian islands. Eight young Hawaiian men traveled to the United States to get
an education. One of them, whose name was Henry Opukahai, became a
Christian. Henry pleaded for missionaries to go to his homeland.
Although the economy had improved under King Kamehameha I, the pagan
practices continued. When his son Liholiho (King Kamehameha II) abolished the
pagan religious practices, Christians in America realized that Hawaii was ripe for
the Gospel.
In 1820, a group of Protestant missionaries stepped off the ship Thaddeus
and onto the soil of Hawaii. The missionaries, led by Hiram Bingham, came with
hearts greatly burdened for the heathen people of Hawaii.
King Kamehameha II had decided that the missionaries could come to
Hawaii and stay for one year. His one requirement was that the rulers must be
taught about the new religion before the people could be taught. As it turned out,
the missionaries stayed far beyond one year.
The list of accomplishments made by the missionaries in Hawaii is
impressive. The Hawaiians had no written language. The missionaries developed
a Hawaiian alphabet and a written Hawaiian language. Then they began teaching
Hawaiian adults to read. Missionary presses began turning out literature and
tracts printed in Hawaiian. The missionaries even translated the entire Bible and
printed it in the Hawaiian language. Queen Kaahumanu accepted Jesus Christ as
her Saviour. She was a great friend of the missionaries and the Gospel. Law and
order prevailed, and moral uprightness was encouraged. Schools and churches
were established all over the islands. It was during this time that King
Kamehameha III wrote the first Hawaiian constitution. The constitution forbade
the passing of any law that disagreed with the Word of God. With the writing of
the constitution, Hawaii became a constitutional monarchy with a system of just
laws and a representative government.
Hawaiians embraced the Gospel so quickly and so thoroughly that within
fifty years the churches of Hawaii were sending out their own missionaries to the
islands of Micronesia.
