These are tasks to teach the NEW Tennessee S.S. standards by having students research independently or as a whole group activity. Each standard has a corresponding activity. The purpose of these tasks are for students to spend time reading about the standards and being able to make conclusions based on their own research. I've included student-friendly links to websites for any teachers out there trying to teach the material without a textbook! This is part of a bundle unit. This covers statehood and early Tennessee (Standards 5.35-5.40).
