Teach your children about some of the many cultures that have made the United States the nation it is today, including Native Americans, African Americans, and Mexican Americans, as well as people from China, Japan, Puerto Rico, Germany, Ireland, Scandinavia, and Russia. Each topic is broken into short, bite-sized pieces accompanied by simple, no-prep activities. You can work through the entire book or simply choose to focus on specific topics. If you choose to work through the entire unit, there are 20 daily lessons broken into four weeks of five days each. Each week has four days of history and activities and one day of review. Discover just a few of the cultures that have combined into the melting pot of America with this 52-page eBook that is perfect for kindergarten and lower elementary.
