Historical Figures MEGA PACK! You may want to check your story on FDR where it is talking about World War II starting in 1939 between France and Great Britain.

I love your products. They are wonderful. Joyce
On  March 3, 20143rd Grade Gridiron answered:
Thanks, Joyce! And you're right - I worded it wrong in the story. I'll update that first thing in the morning. The source I was using mentioned Great Britain and France being the reason FDR got involved, but I was also trying to mention when the war began. Tried to fit too much into one sentence! :)

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  January 19, 2014,  Buyer asked:
In the Susan B. Anthony passage it says she began working with the Anti-Slavery movement in New York in 1965. I think the correct date is 1956. When my class was completing the timeline they noticed they had two 1965's - so we looked it up on the internet.

Thank you!

Are the scavenger hunts all internet based?

Thanks for the question! I created them based on a set of books our county has provided for us. We use these books to complete the scavenger hunts. But they could be completed using the internet, books, or both.
