Hey all! 
This blog post is going to explain all about the third unit in my

If you are not familiar with Little Thinkers, it is a complete Social Studies curriculum specifically for Kindergarten
It's everything you need to introduce, teach, practice, and assess your kinder friends. 
It is cross-referenced and aligned to the main topics of the
Kindergarten Social Studies Standards of many different U.S. states. 
It contains everything you need in a neat, organized package.
It's totally teacher friendly and student-approved!
