This pack was created by special request. I have a generic Social Studies bundle which covers a lot, but it doesn't cover a state's individual standards. So when a third grade teacher asked me to make a pack to cover the California standards, I agreed.
This pack makes Social Studies interesting and engaging. Instead of just reading about history, you are acting it out, creating projects, performing a mock trial, along with many more fun activities!
There are six separate PDFs in this zip file.
