The Thirteen Colonies
A Look at US History
Students often spend a long time learning about the early European settlements, such as Jamestown, and the founding the 13 British colonies that became the United States. Remembering and digesting so much information can be difficult, especially for struggling readers. Through accessible language and simple sentences, this book allows readers to review the history of the 13 colonies no matter the level at which they read. A concluding timeline helps readers chronologically order main events of the social studies curriculum while fact boxes offer explanations for important terms and more detail when needed.
