I've created a standards based unit for you to use with all your wonderful books on Life Long Ago. I embed Depth and Complexity prompts/icons in all my products.
I am big on Depth of Knowledge questioning and activities. Please view the standards page for topics covered. These are the California State Standards but I am sure they intertwine with other state standards. This is NOT limited to California teachers but a great social studies resource for K-2.
This Unit includes the following concepts and activities and more...
What does long ago mean?
How is long ago different than life today?
What things did we do today that we could not do long ago?
Long Ago vs Today Sorting with flaps – w/ differentiation (3)
Things from long ago and how we do them today – writing
Old photographs depicting life long ago and activity (7)
Depth and Complexity –Proof, Details andUnanswered Questions
Double Bubble – Compare & Contrast
Schools Long Ago with photograph – unanswered questions and details
Schools – Depth and Complexity - Patterns
What is a timeline? 3 different timelines
Creative Writing – A machine from long ago. DOK 4
I have teacher prompts /ideas to help you fill in and directions to help you figure out which sorts go together. Many of the pages have differentiation for students.
I purpose leave out some depth and complexity icons for your students to draw the icon/prompt.
I plan to start this unit in my classroom. So please follow me at instagram.com/primarymadness. You will see these activities in action.
