****** This set is part of the All About the World Set ******
This set covers most of the Tennessee Standards for Social Studies for 3rd Grade about Asia!
Within these pages, you'll find activities for practice for students but most importantly, relevant and age appropriate comprehension passages. The style is away from the typical multiple choice or write it out methods. Students read, then using colored pencils/markers/crayons highlight within the passage the answers at the end of the page. Easy to grade and wonderful for text evidence!
