Story of the 13 Colonies & Great Republic by H. A. Guerber textbook
200 Questions About American History & Answer Key
200 Questions About American History Flashcards
Description from Memoria:
"We have looked, and we cannot find an American history study on a grammar school level that we think rivals H. A. Guerber’s two-volume American history set from the turn of the 20th century. So, rather than settle for lesser quality, we have combined Guerber’s The Story of the Thirteen Colonies and The Great Republic into one edited volume that makes it a perfect one year survey of American history for the middle school years."
"As a supplement to Guerber's The Story of the Thirteen Colonies & the Great Republic, we have complied a list of 200 questions that everyone should know about American History. This little books comes with a teacher key. The questions come directly from the text and from Story of the World Volume IV.
With these books, students will get a good grounding in American History."
