    Hey fellow teachers,

    We are in full swing of school here in Tennessee. I am new to 4th grade this year, so I am feeling my way through things. I am trying to relate my daily read-aloud to the theme that I am studying. However, I am struggling with a book to read for Exploration and Ancient Civilizations. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Kari S.

    We are required to study the Maya, Aztec, Olmec, and Mississippi Mound Builders.

    Sorry, can't help there. Ancient civ for us is the Romans, Greeks and Egyptians mostly. Maya and Aztec can be done according to our curriculum but we've always stuck to the traditional ones because of the volume of material available.

    Inca
    The Secret of the Andes (Ann Nolan Clark)


    I love both books!
