What teachers are saying about this American Revolution Unit:

❤️ “This resource was EXACTLY what I needed to get through a unit that I had never taught before. Thank you so much for this bundle of amazingness!!!”

❤️ “I absolutely love this resource. It covers my standards and it makes my lesson planning so easy. It's very thorough, which I love. I wish they had this for world history for my 6th graders!”

❤️ “I love all of Heather's history units. They have saved me sooo much time and effort. She helps me cover my standards, provide for my IEP students, avoid using a textbook (thanks, Covid!), transition easily from the classroom to online, and teach the topics in a variety of ways to address all learners. But my favorite part of her units is that she covers some ELA standards as well. As an ELA and History teacher, I love any product that allows me to support the other subject!” 

❤️ “My students loved the powerpoints and the videos!”

❤️ “I have used several of these units and find them a wonderful resource. I am not a fan of our textbooks, they are heavy and a bit too dense.  These resources free me from the book.”

Specific reading skills in this unit are:

relationships in a text/cause & effect; unknown words & phrases; citing textual evidence & making inferences; text structure; central ideas & summary; and integrating multiple sources of information.
