Over 8 student centered, engaging activities are included in this integrated social studies unit for 4th grade! It is aligned to the Ohio New Learning Standards involving the early history of Ohio becoming a state. I’ve included 7 color posters depicting the dominant forms of early Ohio transportation, a group scoot game analyzing how early statehood occurs, a Reader’s Theater on the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 (15 parts; 3 reading level differentiation), an Ohio transportation timeline, a close reading on early transportation with a cause/effect chart, a Reader’s Theater on Steps to Statehood (23 parts; 3 reading levels), and 2 comprehensive assessments over Prehistoric Ohio and Ohio’s transportation, symbols, & timelines-both with complete answer keys. This unit is a perfect way to integrate social studies with language arts!
