Thanks for this wonderful addition to my resource list! I wish I'd seen it earlier (for some reason, I'm no longer getting your blog posts sent to my email). We're studying China, and I would have loved the freebies from that day. Did you, by chance, download that day's freebie and can send it to me? How about the Harriet Tubman freebie (we studied her in a unit study earlier in the year).

I was able to sign up on their website, and now I'll be able to get a preview of the freebies in advance.

Thanks again for posting this!
