Finding a New Land (4)
A completely revised and reworked version of Boys and Girls of Colonial Days, this reader has doubled in size! It now includes 8 units and 29 reading selections, including some poetry. You will find some of the same selections as in Boys and Girls, but plenty of "new" material taken from other history books of yesteryear. Stories involving famous figures, including Leif Ericsson, Columbus, Jonathan Edwards, Paul Revere, Betsy Ross, and Phyllis Wheatley are mixed in with stories of colonial children. Many stories now feature full-color illustrations, and vocabulary words are formatted in bold. After each story, you'll find a list of vocabulary words with definitions, five comprehension questions, and an extension activity. A test packet and an answer key are also available.
