My students and I love learning about life long ago and comparing the past to the present! I love that this Long Ago and Today social studies unit easily integrates with our ELA “ALL ABOUT” informative writing unit.

By the end of the unit, students will understand that…

They know a lot about differing topics and can write focused information to teach others.

They can gather data from various sources like books, websites, videos, and other media sources. They use this knowledge to help them tell more about a topic.

They should organize their writing like published "All About books”. Their "All Abouts" will include an introduction, chapters, and a closing. Each chapter will include a heading.
