We are pleased to be joining CCIRA in their annual conference to present about using picture books and primary sources with this focus being on colonial America and the study of those who established our country.
Students have great success in working with primary sources and connecting them to literature, and picture books provide just that - a connection! Every student loves a good book that they can read and connect to in some way and in our classrooms we use them as a foundation for inquiry and investigation using resources from the Library of Congress, Gilder Lehrman, national historic sites from across the country, and other resources available online and virtually.
Thanks for joining us ! If you weren't able to be present- check out some of the resources available below and try out some of these in your classroom. Let us know how it goes- and if you need help just send on an email. We will get back to you quickly- or as soon as we have our nose out of our books.
