Well, we have a newly adopted textbook that has turned out to be....boring. Does anyone have any great ideas or units for 8th grade American History? I would LOVE to make my classroom more interactive, and I would also love to have some sort of project that links the year together. Vague, I know, but I am really disappointed with the textbook--it's quite horribly written and goes from way to technical to over-simplified in a paragraph.

There are a bunch here, I abandoned textbooks for the last 15 years of my teaching career and created these PowerPoint's which come with worksheets, crossword puzzles, tests etc

Dear Jennie,

Is there a particular period that your class will cover, or will you cover from Columbus on?
