I’m so happy we found this curriculum. I had already planned a unit on civil rights when I came across LoL. I decided to try this unit instead of planning out my own thing. I’m so glad I did. We are in the middle of trying one other unit in Year 3, and loving it. I already purchased Year 1 for us to use next school year. I’m so glad we found LoL!
