PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

California 4th graders typically do a Mission Project as part of their California social studies learning. The Teacher Next Door’s Mission Project is an 11 page unit filled with everything you’ll need to help your students create a top quality report and presentation.

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

Mission Rubric
