The Kansas Journey
A textbook for seventh grade
This textbook written for a seventh grade audience by Jennie Chinn, Kansas Historical Society executive director, is tied directly to the current Kansas social studies standards. The text provides students with a wide variety of primary source materials which help to develop critical thinking skills.
