Fun Lesson!

Really fun lesson for a 1st grader. We paired it with several printouts of the united states and marked off states we've traveled to, the 13 colonies, and then my 1st grader used the key to write out the names of each stated. The worksheets and the lesson plan was great and helped me, mom, teach the lesson in a way she'd understand!

The graphics are nice. I took some parts of the lesson and turned it into my own, but it is easier than creating everything from scratch. I love how the lessons are aligned with standards.

Good, short unit study

This is a nice little unit study. It doesn't take long to do at all! My only complaint is that it really doesn't go over the 13 originals states, yet asks for them on one of the answer pages. They did provide some outside links, so maybe it was on there?? I don't remember seeing it though. Overall I like the studies offered and little details like that I can look up myself to add to the study via the internet. :)
