Texas Social Studies: Grade 4 Bundle (New Product Sale 90% off regular price)

This standards-based resource INTEGRATES social studies and language arts, encourages students to consider MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES and fosters DEEPER UNDERSTANDING and retention of key ideas. Best of all, your students will have a blast and beg for more! You'll be able to use it year after year!
