Product Description
School As a Community

This integrated unit is intended for grades 2 - 3, as this is when the "concept of community" is generally presented in social studies. Students learn about rules, transportation, history and geography, rights and responsibilities and civic involvement.

The unit was written to be taught in eight segments of three hours, but could be easily adapted for an extended time period. The unit consists of a series of detailed lesson plans with clearly defined goals and objectives, using the novel Ralph S. Mouse by Beverly Cleary as its core novel.
The lesson plans are organized in steps that are easy to follow and include objectives, rationale, motivation, reading activities and suggestions for evaluating the work. The unit also contains a list of novels, activity sheets, peer and self evaluation sheets and student record sheets. (57 Pages)
