Unite or Die! The Story of the Thirteen Colonies
Though the first U.S. Census didn't start until 1790, the squat elementary children put on a play that lays the historical foundation for it. The kids of Forest Lake School (sporting shapes of the original 13 states) dramatize the problems faced after the American Revolution which were resolved by the 1787 Constitutional Convention. This entertaining look at the county’s start is sure to engage and inspire further research.
