PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Michigan History is a literacy-based lesson aligned with the Common Core Standards. The lesson has been professionally recorded with words and music so you can set up a listening center for your reluctant readers or use the audio to enhance whole group instruction!

NOTE: The audio file is in MP3 format for playing on your computer or MP3 device.

This 23-page lesson teaches about the state's first people, famous explorers, early government, important battles and wars in Michigan, and the journey to statehood.

After reading about Michigan, students will:

Great information and helped to teach research strategies, but a little heavy on the reading for my third graders.

Nice resource. Mostly reading. I think better for middle school than for 3rd grade. Nice, neat articles. Can teach informational reading strategies while using this. Small font size. Not as good for the little ones.
On  March 28, 2013Splash! Publications answered:
Thank you for your purchase and constructive comments. This was a tough one for us to create--most states require state history to be covered in 4th grade, but Michigan's state standards call for the bulk of Michigan History to be taught in 3rd grade. It's difficult to create a comprehensive, core-aligned Michigan History curriculum for 3rd graders.
