Wish lesson plans were attached. I would like to know how the writer intended this to be taught.
On  April 23, 2013Mary Hopkins answered:
Dear Carolsenn--The USA units are intended to be used in directed teaching, as homework, or as independent work. Each state has 5 pages. For example, if you are teaching about Montana, the logical teaching order would be to read together and discuss the state's informational page (p. 4). Next, the map (p.3) and map questions (p. 5) would be covered. Finally, the specialty page about Glacier National Park could be used for independent work (p. 6). At the end of the unit, the Montana review and match up (p. 7) would be used as a final review. All 50 states have this 5 page unit format. Hope this helps. Mary
