Dive back in time with this complete inquiry based U.S history unit. STEM! Math fun! Interactive literacy! And flipables, foldables, web quests and the history goes on and on. This makes you the coolest teacher ever! Kids love inquiry based learning and there are over 120 pages full of hands on inquiry that engages and promotes learning in this complete, interactive social studies unit of inquiry. I created this for an IB PYP theme of Where We Are in Place and Time with our central idea of:
The past is part of who we are today, as today will impact the future.
Lines of inquiry:
Compare the perspectives of the people within Florida throughout history.
Why were Europeans interested in Florida territory?
Developments from settlers brought about change in Florida communities
and society over time.
Implications for the future state of Florida.
Interactive notebook activities,
Differentiated informational text.
Math inquiry based activities - number sense, operations & geometry.
Non fiction literacy articles for reading and writing.
Collaborative group work tasks
Formative assessments and homework
Interactive web sites
And much more besides.
This unit can be used with 3rd -6th grade.
