What educators are saying

This was such a wonderful resource! My students and I both loved it! Thank you for sharing your hard work and creativity!
My students loved these activities! This resource was perfect for our social studies unit on life then and now!


Life in the past and present is the primary focus of this huge social studies unit. Changing Times - Past and Present - provides lessons and materials for the standard: Comparing lives of long ago and present. I developed in with my first graders in mind, but it contains parts that can be used in K, 2nd and 3rd.

It is designed to be a cohesive unit, incorporated literacy and social studies with plenty of cute crafts/activities in the mix! Your students will study past and present homes, transportation, school tools, as well as develop an understanding of how technology has changed our lives.
