This is a twenty page SEVEN day planned out project for the Southwest Region. It includes links to video tours, pictures, and walking tours for five different landmarks in this region. It also includes a nonfiction passages for each landmark, multiple rubrics, lesson plans (aligned with CCSS) and an example.
This is LOW prep and a class favorite!
It is a great way to bring Language Arts standards into Social Studies while grabbing the attention from all students. It also aligns to the Speaking and Listening standards by having students present their projects while others assess them with the included presentation rubric.
This project focuses on:
The Alamo: Texas
Grand Canyon: Arizona
Chaco Canyon: New Mexico
Carlsbad Caverns: New Mexico
Oklahoma City National Memorial: Oklahoma
