HistoryLink wanted elementary students and other beginning readers to be able to read essays found in this encyclopedia too - so HistoryLink Elementary was created. Selected essays were rewritten at a lower reading level. They feature important persons, places, and events in Washington state history.
You can find a list of topics below. There is a special vocabulary for each essay to help with words that may be unfamiliar.
