PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

How do you teach history and language arts in a way that is fun, interesting and meaningful? Impossible you say? Not if you really put your students and children there! And not just on the first page of a chapter with a “You Are There” blurb, and then drudging them through boring facts about the past and parts of speech that they either won’t remember or won’t connect to in any meaningful way.
In this activity, that you can do in the classroom or in your living room, they really get to understand who the first explorers were and why they came. Why? Because they get to be those first explorers!

First they will read a narrative that puts them in the middle of the action. Then they turn that narrative into a skit, complete with making a big cardboard mammoth  It can be simple, where they just act out the narrative, or it can be more challenging, where they have to add to the script using selected spelling, vocabulary or grammar. I’ve included what we’re learning in my 2nd grade class for you in this lesson, but you may use your own words or standards to customize this lesson to meet your students’/child’s specific needs.

Thank you and enjoy being the First to Set Foot in America!
