This is the way I love to teach history...the FUN way! Learning American History Through Literature covers seven periods of American history: Colonial, Revolutionary War, Westward Expansion, Civil War, Industrial Age, World War Years, and Postwar Years. Each unit includes in-depth book lists, discussion questions, hands-on-activities, games, recipes, and more that will help make history come alive for students in K-8th grades. A wonderful resource! Softbound book.
