Virginia standards have changed! It used to require first graders to learn about George Washington Carver, but Carver has been moved to second grade. This mini unit has an 8 page reader, word/picture cards, 2 different question pages, and a word search. This would be a great way to use nonfiction in your language arts block, while covering a social studies unit!
