Creating a Community is a Unit Plan designed for Social Studies class in 3rd grade. In this lesson, students actively participate in developing a new community similar to those started in the early days of the United States.
This full unit is intended for us as a summary of topics typically covered in 3rd grade Social Studies, including resources, basic human needs, politics, history, economy, inventions, natural and human made disasters, progress, social issues, symbols, conflict and conflict resolution.
As the unit unfolds, students make connections allowing for retention of these topics, and students develop enthusiasm for American history studies.
