Special Notes:

***The New Social Studies standards are heavy on Inquiry-Based skills. The lessons in this unit are designed to put the learning in the hands of the students while the teacher is the facilitator; therefore, they are rigorous. Due to the rigor of the lesson design (since they are inquiry-based and student-centered) this unit would be ideal to implement second semester.***

***Please note, you will not find traditional tests and worksheets with this product. This package contains tasks and lesson sequences that are for teachers ready to try inquiry-based learning.***

***The tasks are editable to fit your students' needs. They do not contain fancy font or clip art due to the fact they are editable. See below for lesson details.***

***This unit can be used as is, or can supplement your existing curriculum.***
