Bundle Description

This bundle contains a complete plan for your New Mexico state history curriculum. With only a few minutes of prep, your students will be capable of creating their own educational experience and then share what they learned with the rest of the class. Find an 8½ x 11 picture of New Mexico and divide it into quadrants. Cut that picture and give one section to each of the four groups so they know where their territory ends. Consider enlarging the quarter-sized state to make it easier for your students to reference. If you want more than four groups, divide your state into 5 or 6 sections. Each group will have the exact same instructions, but when you all come back together again, your students will present a complete picture of tourism, commerce, food, careers, etc. in New Mexico.

Also, each group will have their packet organized such that they need to research their section and submit a written report before proceeding to the next section, which will be to plan a presentation project. After getting approval for the demonstration (guidelines will be given in their instructions), students will work in their groups to develop a stellar presentation about their section of New Mexico.

Each group should have access to the Internet or the library for their research. If, for any reason, that is not appropriate, make sure your classroom has some resources for your students to access.

Your students should be able to complete this project-based learning experience on their own with a minimum of guidance from you. Certainly, cruise the room to make sure everyone is on task, but for the most part, they will be teaching each other. How great is that?

I have also included a grading rubric and a timeline for you. The first 40 points will be allotted for the written section of the assignment. The next 60 points will be allotted to the planning, creation, and presentation of their assigned section of New Mexico.

THE PROJECT FILE IS UNLOCKED SO YOU CAN SUBSTITUTE New Mexico IN THE GUIDELINES FOR THE ACTUAL NAME OF YOUR STATE!

The two PowerPoints cover specific details about the history of New Mexico and the state symbols. They are the perfect introduction to your unit.

It doesn't get much easier than this to teach your students about New Mexico!
