This 40-minute lesson plan introduces students to the "Migrant Caravan" and reviews "claims and evidence" by beginning with two KWL charts. Students watch a PBS NewsHour segment and complete the Claims & Evidence Tracker 1 to take notes on claims made about who is traveling, why are they leaving their countries, and why President Trump has been giving this caravan lots of attention. Afterwards, students do a pair share and then add what they have learned to their KWL chart. This is the first in a series of 4 lesson plans about the migrant caravan. It can be implemented separately or as part of the larger bundle.
