Little Thinkers FIRST GRADE Unit 2: Families, Long Ago & Today!

Hey all! 
This blog post is to explain all about UNIT 2 in my
Little Thinkers Social Studies curriculum for FIRST GRADE!

Little Thinkers Social Studies is a complete 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: Families, Long Ago & Today
UNIT 3: Holidays Around the World
UNIT 4: Community Economics
UNIT 5: Geography


Unit 2 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:

Texts for read-alouds:
