Thank you! You know your unit has been successful when a student falls on the playground, brushes himself off, and says "I'm o.k. I'm being brave like Harriet Tubman!" I had fun with this one. Thank you for the sweet comment:)

You're welcome. We did this at the very beginning of the year and my kids are still talking about Sacagawea. When someone falls on the playground they say "Be brave like Sacagawea". Haha

Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 29, 2013Julie Foster answered:
It covers RI 1 and RI 7 You could cover RI 3 "ELACC1RI3: Describe the connection between two individuals, events, ideas, or pieces of information in a text." if you chose to focus on connections between Sacagawea, Lewis and Clark and Thomas Jefferson. The focus of this one however is the "Character Traits" of the individuals such as "Honesty, Perseverance.... etc" My "Famous American Mini Books" gives some information about the connections (i.e. the Lewis and Clark mini book mentions Sacagawea, etc) However, the main focus again is the Social Studies standard about their Character traits. Hope this helps:)
