Labels help the reader identify a picture or a photograph and its parts.

Comparisons help the reader understand the size of one thing by comparing it to the size of something familiar.

Cutaways help the reader understand something by looking at it from the inside.

Maps help the reader understand where things are in the world.

Index is an alphabetical list of almost everything written in the text, with page numbers so you can find the information.

Table helps the reader understand important information by listing it in a table or a chart form.


Plane Shapes: (A flat surface) Square, triangle, rectangle, trapezoid, circle, hexagon, parallelogram, and Pentagon.

Quadrilateral: is a plane shape with 4 sides and 4 angles

Social Studies:

Tomochichi, chief of the Yamacraw Indians was an important person of early Georgia history. He helped to create peaceful relations between the Georgia settlers and the Yamacraw Indians.

James Oglethorpe founded the Georgia Colony. He planned the colony as a haven for people who had been imprisoned for debt.

Known as Coosaponakeesa among the Creek Indians, Mary Musgrove served as a cultural liaison between colonial Georgia and her Native American community in the mid-eighteenth century. Musgrove took advantage of her biculturalism to protect Creek interests, maintain peace on the frontier, and expand her business as a trader. As Pocahontas was to the Jamestown colony and Sacagawea was to the Lewis and Clark expedition, so was Musgrove to the burgeoning Georgia colony.
