This is a great resource. Our curriculum doesn't have much on French and Indian War----this will supplement that fabulously. The common core connection will be most helpful as I like to use soc. st. to teach reading skills. Including writing helps support common core.
This was definitely a great purchase :) Thanks.

This is a fantastic unit! I was able to pick it up and start using it immediately. I am using it to supplement our social studies textbook and infusing video clips. It gives a great overview and sequence of events and provides great background information. The readings are very high-quality and grade-level appropriate. I am planning to look into the other units created by Splash! Publications and add them to my year-long Social Studies plan.
On  May 30, 2013Splash! Publications answered:

This is a wonderful unit. I don't really have a social studies text, so we are using this along with online resources. We cut them apart and assemble them in a social studies spiral. The kids are able to underline the context support for each question and show text support for each thing they are learning. We review the vocab (highlighted) words before each Vocab Test. Great Job!

After testing the reading levels of the text included most excerpts were an 8th grade level or above. It is listed as a 4th or 5th grade level and I would love to have them do this as individual reading but hardly any of my students will be able to comprehend the passages as they are.
