This list of books is definitely not exhaustive! These are books that I have in my classroom library collection. There are other great books that would definitely fit into this list. There are other American History topics that could be added to this list. Please use this as a starting point and add to the list. I wanted to make an inventory list of my personal books that I could use to integrate Social Studies into my Literacy block because I would teach lessons for a particular point in history and then find a book that I forgot I had after I had taught that period of history. This list was developed because I wanted to be more organized and not get frustrated when I would find a book and think about what I could have done to make my history lessons more exciting and informative.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
