  1. 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
  2. By request, I have created a second grade version of my Social Studies pack for California! This pack is full of nonfiction articles, book suggestions, teacher lessons, reproducibles, projects, and FUN! Included: History- Families From the Past (38 pages) -Learning about families from the past,
