This product uses the popular, new method of project based learning to support the Scott Foresman Social Studies textbook People and Places. With this unit packet, the students will take greater ownership of their learning by thinking about each driving question by themselves and then with a partner or group. Next, they consult the textbook to check their learning. They summarize their learning with a paragraph and their own illustration on page two of the lesson. The topics covered include:
*bodies of water
*producer vs. consumer
Let your students expand their learning by discovering these topics themselves! The teacher will lead the class in a discussion of their findings to check for understanding.
