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 geography. It includes all you need to meet the standards in a hands-on way your students will love by, asking them to research their families migration journey to the US. The week long writing unit can be integrated into independent writing stations or done as a group. It asks them to draw pictures and answer questions about how their family immigrated to their state. They will practice observation skills as they compare their state's geography to their location origin. The unit culminates in publishing student blogs called, My Story of Immigration. Students and their families will be talking about this unit for years to come! The other story based unit are under development and will be uploaded as they are published.
