**********************************************************************

Special Note: The New Social Studies standards are heavy on Inquiry-Based skills. The lessons in this curriculum are designed to put the learning in the hands of the students while the teacher is the facilitator.

**********************************************************************

The unit is designed using the Backward Design curriculum model.
• I started at the standards.
• I designed the assessments.
• I designed instruction that teaches what will be assessed. (It focuses on inquiry-based learning, the hallmark of the new social studies standards.)

The lesson plan format is based upon the 5Es. (Facilitation tips are included.)
• Engage
• Explore
• Explain
• Elaborate
• Evaluate
