The late fall is traditionally a time for holiday parties and family get-togethers. The resources in the Visiting Extended Family mini-collection may help you and your children use these times for some interesting learning opportunities related to historical thinking and sharing personal histories in the revised social studies standards.
The following picture books complement the topic of visiting family and friends. Each book can be found on an Early Childhood Bookshelf page. Click on the title of the book to open the Bookshelf page, where you can see the book cover, read a commentary, and find Literary Links that describe ways to use the book to further children’s learning.
