This social studies SmartBoard lesson will get your students excited about comparing life in the past to life today.
The lesson includes, a lesson plan, interactive pages (pull tabs), website links (to interactive websites comparing life long ago to life today), discovery video link and 5 student response worksheets (students will draw/label OR draw/write to compare an aspect of life today to life long ago - 2 versions of each are provided so you can differentiate for writing ability). The printable worksheets are included as a pdf in the attachment tab. Page count reflects both the notebook file and the pdf.
This lesson can be used after my Needs and Wants lesson as it compares some "needs and wants" from long ago to today. This notebook file can be divided into 2-3 lesson periods. (Discovery Video link requires a subscription.)
*note: The preview file shows the old version of the printables. The thumbnails show the updated forms.
(This is a .notebook file and requires Notebook software to open)
