The first 81 slides have 4 terms/definitions on each page. The following 81 slides contain only the definitions and they are in the same order as the first 81 slides. I wanted to provide you with the opportunity to print the terms on the back of each corresponding term/definition card. There are also blank cards for you to add your own terms.
These cards are the perfect companion to USA Studies Weekly, as they are the complete list for all 32 Units, but they can be used for any Social Studies curriculum.
Although this set is designed to help students meet the 5th Grade TEKS Social Studies Standards and prepare to pass the Texas STAAR, Common Core teachers and teachers of grades 4-6 will also find this resource useful.
