Want a project-based unit that does it all for students? Look no further. This unit was designed for 3rd grade Michigan History, but it also meets the needs of students studying the Fur Trade. It includes all you need to meet the standards in a hands-on way your students will love by asking them to think about how the Fur Traders used innovation to change history. The week long writing unit can be integrated into independent writing stations or done as a group. The interactive PowerPoint uses Visual Thinking routines to build critical thinking skills. Interactive fur trading activities include a trading station, a trapping station, etc. The unit culminates in publishing student blogs called, Fur Traders - My Story of Innovation.
