Reviews: “The Cherokee legends unit has been very engaging with my 2nd grader. He loves reading the stories. They are very suspenseful and have lots of new vocabulary that keep him challenged. To follow up, the summary portion helps him to restate what he has learned in a meaningful way. It is also great that several skills are combined into one activity. Fabulous resource!”
