Lesson 2: Identifying and understanding the differences/similarities between people of today and people of the past.

Lesson 5: Applying the different perspectives to a final simulation: Simulation of a one-room schoolhouse
o The teacher will be simulating a day in the life of students in the late-19th century in a one-room schoolhouse to apply different perspectives and gain a deeper understanding of the time period.
