This correlates with the first grade Common Core Unit 5 on American Contributors. The contributors included in this packet are: Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Martin Luther King Jr, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Jackie Robinson, George Washington Carver, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Graham Bell, The Wright Brothers, and Thomas Edison. It's perfect for studying Black History, President's Day and Inventors. (It is unit 4 in my bundle because I moved it to correspond better with MLK day and Black history month)
240+ pages of materials, weekly visual plans, detailed daily lesson plans, and Common Core standards tied to the activities.
