T is for Tarheel is a wonderful book to read-aloud to students or have them work in groups to read. I have used it for many years as an introduction for North Carolina history in my 4th grade classroom. Here is an activity sheet to use that goes along perfectly with the story. Every letter is represented, and questions are simple "right there" questions found in both the poem or the side fact notes.
*"T is for Tarheel" is not owned by me. It is owned by Carol Crane and Sleeping Bear Press.
