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. :)

Wonderful Resources Appropriate for Various Grades

I have used a few of the Social Studies assignments and they are very informative and very well-done. There are various assignments that work for different grade levels. What a great resource! I printed down a bunch of them for my special education 2nd - 4th graders and really appreciate the use of them! Highly recommended. The students have really enjoyed the Native American and Thanksgiving series and my most challenging autistic student has been captivated, which is a huge plus!

Excellent content

I like this lesson plan. There’s a brief about the general history of the states and then a few activities for leaning the names. It’s simple and effective.
