This product includes all that's needed to teach a social studies unit on family roots, family history, researching a country of origin, and primary economics in a community near or far. Also included is an activity for map skills and another activity for making a bar graph on classroom family root's data. This unit was a huge hit with both the students and the families of my first and second graders.
