California 4th graders typically do a Mission Project as part of their California social studies learning. The Teacher Next Door’s Mission Project is filled with everything you’ll need to help your students create a top quality report and presentation. It includes editable forms to allow you to customize some of the handouts as well.
One unique aspect of this unit is that students are able to select their own projects from a list of many suggestions ( a small scale model, a DVD of their actual visit there, a brochure…) or they can even create their own idea….with your approval of course! This self selection adds instant motivation.
The Mission Project includes:
A Mission Reference List (names, dates and places)
Mission Project Directions
Mission Presentation Directions
Mission Research Notes Page
Mission Writing Pages
Mission Cover Page
Mission Presentation Outline Page
California Map Page
Mission Title Page Bibliography Page
