Issues of Cobblestone Connected to 5th Grade Social Studies

First, I want to identify the topics that are associated with 5th grade in my school district (Changing Face of North America AKA Colonial America, American Revolution, United States Constitution).

With that in mind, I've created a document that includes the links/synopsis of all issues of Cobblestone that are connected to 5th grade social studies.  As teachers look to maximize learning time and connect learning across contents, there is a growing need to use content-rich non-fiction within reading instruction.  I feel that Cobblestone, a history magazine for ages 9-14, delivers wonderful non-fiction that is short enough to use with guided reading groups or for jigsaw reading activities around a topic/theme/concept.
