Michigan History is a literacy-based mini unit aligned with the Common Core Standards. We've supplied all of the content, lower and higher level Michigan history activities, and FOUR Interactive Notebook activities that will provide students with a long lasting Michigan history reference.
In addition, the Michigan lesson content has been professionally recorded with words and music so you can set up a listening center for your reluctant readers or use the audio to enhance whole group instruction!
NOTE: The audio file is in MP3 format for playing on your computer or MP3 device.
Our Michigan Mini Unit teaches about the state's first people, famous explorers and colonists, early government, important battles and wars in Michigan, and the journey to statehood.
After reading about Michigan, students will:
answer Reading Comprehension questions
complete a Language Skills activity
create a journal entry detailing the escape from slavery on the Underground Railroad
take a Vocabulary Quiz
Students will then use the lesson content to create:
Vocabulary Foldables (Interactive Notebook)
State History Booklet (Interactive Notebook)
My State at A Glance Accordion Foldable (Interactive Notebook)
"Mad Anthony" Wayne Famous Person Wheel (Interactive Notebook)
We've even included a color version of the lesson content for your White Board, black line masters for your students, a context-appropriate Glossary, and grading rubrics for the Interactive Notebook and higher-level activities.
