This is a great lesson plan to begin a unit or even to use in the first week of school!
It is also good for the teacher to use to learn the names of students.
This lesson focuses on names and how they originated. It helps students to look at their ancestors. It makes them look at where they came from before they came to America. students can form a personal relationship with their ancestors and think about why they came to America. It is a great lesson to use to lead into the Renaissance or the Exploration periods in teaching history.
