Need an engaging way to introduce New York history or geography lessons?
Here are eight cooperative, deductive reasoning activities about:
- Henry Hudson
- The Statue of Liberty
- The Erie Canal
- The Brooklyn Bridge (this is in the preview mystery download)
- Ellis Island
- Niagara Falls
- The Adirondack Park
- Joseph Gayette (inventor of commercially produced toilet paper)
Best of all, these activities require practically no teacher preparation beforehand.
If your students have played "20 Questions" or "I Spy" they will pick this up in no time.
Get your students excited about their state!
