As I read the book, How Maine Changed the World, I suddenly realized that there was a great deal of history of accomplishment and moments that need to be presented to students with age/grade appropriate learning activities. In this post, I have included the content titles of each subject. Students can do their research on their titles and then check what they have reported to the content of this book. Each student would present their report to the class. The book can also be purchased on Amazon.
