To Appreciate and Respect Our Wonderful Democracy 150 150 hill-fisher

January 6, 2021 was an eye opener for most people in the U.S.A. and for people around the world.  The mob breaking into the Capitol building was unbelievable.  To see something like this happen in our democracy was extremely surprising.  In a democracy it is important to appreciate and respect our differences.

Fisher Hill has four easy to use workbooks about U.S. history and geography. https://www.fisher-hill.com/product-category/us-history-and-geography/ Click on each workbook then click on the blue box that says Sample Pages to view sample pages from each workbook.  Each workbook includes stories, maps, and activities in Spanish and English.

Each state is presented by a story, then a vocabulary and comprehension page, next a map with questions, and finally a chart, table, graph, or another type of activity which presents information to the reader.  Most stories deal with a historic topic. The stories are about men and women from different racial groups who have helped build this nation. The words and questions on the vocabulary and comprehension page are to be used in conjunction with the story.  The map shows some of the major cities, rivers, and products of that state.  The charts, tables, and graphs present information for students to read and use.
