Tall Tales & U.S. Geography Week 3

Finishing up tall tales and American frontier legends from the Southeast and the Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys, and moving into the Midwest region.

Monday, April 1

  • recall our field trip, Mike Fink, and his friendship with Davy Crockett; listen to Ballad of Davy Crockett recorded by Fess Parker
  • rough draft summary and illustration, add Mike Fink to MLB
  • pass out Blank United States Maps, read off the states in order of statehood, have children color each state as it joins the Union so that they can see Westward Expansion happen (update: when I wrote to this TpT teacher to leave feedback on her product and tell her how we were using her blank U.S. map, she updated the product to include a new map which shows the states numbered in order of statehood!)
  • read The Story of Johnny Appleseed by Aliki
