State Regional Tour

Mrs. Newingham does a great Regional Tour with her students. I have begun to collect You Tube Videos on each of the site and you can view them on this wiki.

My school doesn't use the History Alive books but we do study the states. So I simply visited Amazon and purchased a copy of the student's book for about $15. When I got it, I made copies of the pages needed for every two students. I did, however, buy the audio CD. You need to be careful. They came out with a new version of the book and CD. So if you bought the old book be sure to purchase the old CD. Here are some links:
