SPECIAL NOTES:

***This unit is designed to put the learning in the hands of the students while the teacher is the facilitator; therefore, it is rigorous in nature. It focuses on inquiry-based learning, the hallmark of the new social studies standards. This product contains lesson sequences that are for teachers ready to try inquiry-based learning.***

***You will not find traditional worksheets with this product since the social studies standards are heavy on inquiry-based learning.***

***The tasks are editable word documents. Feel free to edit them as needed to fit the needs of your students.***

***The lesson plan format is based on the 5Es. (Facilitation tips are included.)***
