"OURstory" UNIT PLANS 

In ESTE's OURstory Units, kids conduct relevant and meaningful investigations of the past as well as the present, including where their personal stories fit into it all. Using mostly primary sources, kids will engage in either a study of women in the ancient world, world religions, or a study of Turtle Island, the land on which the U.S. occupies. Units are comprehensive & include vocabulary support, context readings, daily "Start" activities, multiple sources, and a suggested "end of unit" project or prompt. Purchase includes printable PDF and Google Slides. Units average 15 lessons (50 min- 1 hour long). Check out Unit 1 here & how you kick off the year!

virtual trips

A student favorite!

Virtual trips are slideshows that read like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” story! Accompanied by stunning visuals, an engaging plot, & historical details, Virtual Trips are perfect for independent or whole group learning!

Consider having one custom made for your students or look forward to new Virtual Trips in the shop coming in fall, just in time for All Hallow's Eve!

TEACHER TOOLBOX

The teacher toolbox is a collection of short units, individual lessons, interactive slideshows, "go-to" resources on a minimum day, skill- builders you can pop in when the kids need a review, and more! I also offer instructional posters and digital infographics. Add to your toolbox with some of these cool resources (most of which I created for & used with my own students!)

REBELLIOUS HISTORY ZINES

Easily printed & copied, Zines were distributed to bring awareness to the important social & political matters of the Civil Rights Movements of the 1960s. ESTE's Zines" follow in their footsteps with these foldable,"stapleable" little books on "rebellious history". If you want your kids to know what vital history textbooks are leaving out or getting wrong, check out these Zines! Focusing for now on U.S. history, from the earliest days of the colonization of Turtle Island through today's occupation. A little more radical than your anti-CRT peeps would like.... so all the more reason to purchase ;)
