Annie Oakley, Davy Crockett, Paul Bunyan, John Henry and Johnny Appleseed are all covered in the pack of student books and coloring sheets.
Each student book is 12 pages long and includes information about the folk hero as well as an explanation of they way they characterize our national heritage. Each student book is written on first grade level so that students can read it independently. It includes pictures to color and a learning activity at the end.
Also included are coloring sheets for each of the folk heros.
My first grade friends and I just used this to teach Georgia Social Studies Standard SS1H2. The students enjoyed the study of Folk Heros and Tall Tales. The student books provide informational text written on their level. Suggestions for further use in ELA are included.
