PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PROJECT BASED LEARNING (PBL): THANKSGIVING: As your students help plan a Thanksgiving meal, they also learn about the history of Thanksgiving. This student-centered PBL unit incorporates collaboration and differentiation by providing student choice. This real-world challenge requires students to use inquiry, critical thinking, and their creative minds during the high-interest cross-curricular [math, social studies, ELA] activities. Students integrate digital learning into the project as they investigate history, cultures, diversity, and complete their final product.
