Little Thinkers Social Studies for 1st grade

Hey all! 
This blog post is to explain all about the next level in my
Little Thinkers Social Studies curriculum. FIRST GRADE is here!

Little Thinkers is a complete Social Studies curriculum specifically for primary kids
It's everything you need to introduce, teach, practice, and assess your primary friends. 
The first grade edition is cross-referenced and aligned to the main topics of 1st grade Social Studies Standards from states across the country. 
This curriculum is 100% researched, designed, and created by me, Karen Jones.
. It contains everything you need in a neat, organized package.
It's totally teacher friendly and student-approved! 

I'm going to walk you through the format of the entire curriculum. First, let's look at the units.
UNIT 1: Responsible Citizenship
UNIT 2: Customs & Traditions
UNIT 3: Holidays Around the World
UNIT 4: Community Economics
UNIT 5: Geography


Unit 1 is now complete and available here. Let's take a closer look at what is included!




Here is the breakdown of the major components of each unit. 
The six-week unit is meant to be taught bi-weekly (twice a week) with 25-minute lessons. I know that your time is valuable and you need to make the most of every minute, so each lesson is jam packed with content and engagement
The lessons are quick-paced, written in teacher language, and primary-friendly. You could give these plans to a sub or student teacher, and there would be no question as to what they need to do! It's all there for you.

Here are the components of the unit:
