Note: the six people cards have a name and picture only - no facts. I've done this purposely because of how I use these cards in my classroom. Also, there are a few duplicate cards (i.e., colonist, colony, etc.) from my other sets, since some words are used in multiple standards, but they include different definitions that are more specific to how they are used in this unit.
