Amanda and Stacia over at Collaboration Cuties have set up this great linky.
This week we are linking up texts we use with social studies.
My class just finished a westward movement unit.
A book I always use is:
The kids love this book!
The book is all questions and answers about traveling west in a wagon.
I actually use this book more than our social studies textbook.
It is written in very kid friendly language.
Many of the questions are directly related to life for a pioneer kid.
My kids asked how the authors found out all this information.
At the end of the book, it tells you the answer.
The authors used old diaries of kids and adults that traveled west.
There are other books in this series, but this is the only one I have used so far.
My pioneers unit was created around this book.
You can check it below.
I'll give it free to the first person to comment below!
Hope you had a nice weekend.
