Candadian History Book 1 Chapter 1 This really helped my students understand: glaciers, raising sea levels, and the land bridge theory.

Land Bridge Lesson Plan - Layers of Learning

EASY: Integrate Social Studies with ELA! 18 nonfiction leveled texts total (6 texts on three levels – below grade level, on grade level, and above grade level) related to the Age of Exploration. Each passage includes Common Core comprehension printables. Included The Age of Exploration Texts: *Christopher Columbus *Hernando de Soto *Ferdinand Magellan *Navigational Technology *Land Bridge Theory *Special Section* Exploration by Country - Spain, Portugal, France, The Netherlands and England

This is one of my favorite units! It motivates students to want to learn about the Native Americans of North America (Eastern Woodlands, Great Plains, Southwest, Northwest Coast, Southeast). For each region, there is a 2-page informational text and comprehension questions. In addition, create a Native America name, Picture Writing, Project, Study chart, Map of the regions, Dream Catcher project and writing, Totem Pole Craft and writing, rain dance instructions, acrostic poem, quiz and rubrics.

A great addition to the social studies classroom, this book includes poems about famous explorers. Figurative language in this book includes similes and metaphors.
