  • Before the unit most students were only familiar with the ballot or picture book story.
  • After the unit the novel replaced the ballot as their favorite form of the story.

beyond the units
Beyond the Units

I encourage students to take away with them the appreciation of architecture, music, and literature from this time period. It is important for the fifth graders to make historical connections between some of the holiday traditions we commemorate today with their origin and purposes from the past.
