This is a flipchart for ActivInspire Promethean Boards.
The text is The Louisiana Purchase Would You Close the Deal? written by Elaine Landau. It's a guidebook text for Louisiana grade 3 teachers. It covers RI CCSS 3.1-3.7. The unit was designed for 3 weeks of study. You can edit the days of the week titles on the slides to fit your needs. Each lesson contains an interesting hook to grasp the students' attention. Some are embedded website links to videos from the History channel, PowerPoint presentations about the LA Purchase, Brainpop Jr. and Brainpop videos, etc. There are Accountable Talk discussion questions for each chapter, written at different levels of DOK. The answers are hidden underneath for self checking. Use magic ink, a revealer, or just lower the covered shape box to see the answers. The English writing piece is the final activity and is aligned to PARCC writing tasks. Students need to create an essay about what they learned. I've also included chapter summaries and enrichment websites about the LA Purchase Exhibit, The Monticell, and The Port of New Orleans. Background resources credited to amazingclassrooms.com.
