How Do Places Get Their Names?

This resource also includes:

Slippery Rock? Bird In Hand? Philadelphia? Every country, state, town, river and mountain was named by someone. While the focus of this lesson is how places in South Carolina were named, the skills taught are universal and the writing lead-ins are engaging. In addition, with a little research, the activities could be adapted to any state or area.
