In Great Social Studies Projects, history comes to life! Child-friendly hands-on projects with clear step-by-step, photo-illustrated instructions accompany informative, fact-filled text. With this series, information is immediately linked with hands-on projects, offering flexibility with regards to different learning styles, as well as immediate reinforcement of the information that is being presented. Utilizing listening skills, reading skills, cognitive ability, and creativity, Great Social Studies Projects will ensure that every child has a positive and fun learning experience.

The Pony Express swept over this country for only one and a half years, but in that short time it changed communication between the states forever. Students will learn about the history and the geography of our developing nation while they recreate this exciting time through dioramas, maps, and other fun projects.
