    I am teaching first/second this fall using thematic units that go along with the science/s.s./health curriculum. I am looking for big books to go along with each theme. I have found a few but I am stuck on a lot! Help would be greatly appreciated. Here is the list of themes that I still have not found big books for:

    Egypt
    Rome
    Greece
    Europe
    India
    China
    Movement
    Machines
    Teeth
    Bones and Muscles
    Heart and Blood
    Lungs and Air

    I'm not picky the book doesn't actually have to have the theme in the title. Like for China-it could be a folk tale or an animal that is in China. I've been google-ing for the past 2 days and figured I should ask here.

    Thanks!!

    While you wait and search.. post a project on donorschoose.org You wont get the books possibly as soon as you will need them, but it will certainly help you in the long run.
