Description

Discover the rich history of Georgia state in this series that promotes content literacy in the four strands of social studies: history, civics, geography, and economics. This extensive set comes with high-interest nonfiction readers with the common theme of Georgia state studies. The People of Georgia set focuses on biographies of significant Georgians throughout history, including Sequoyah, James Oglethorpe, Tomochichi, Mary Musgrove, Martin Luther King Jr., Jackie Robinson, and Jimmy Carter.
