To introduce landforms I assigned different landforms to each group. They had to research the landforms their group was assigned. They had to draw their landforms, write about it, and next week they will present their landforms as a group! They did a great job and are learning how to work great in a group!
My kiddos LOVED learning about Pioneers. After several days of reading about and discussing pioneers, my kiddos completed a Google Classroom assignment. They had to compare and contrast their lives to a pioneer’s life! Then they made a paper doll of themselves as a pioneer. They had a blast! At the end of the unit we had Pioneer Day! The kiddos dressed as pioneers and we played games and made crafts! They had a blast acting like Pioneer!
We had a blast learning about immigration! We started the unit by reading the book “This is Me” by Jamie Lee Curtis. The students got to design their own suitcase and drew and cut out just what they would need for their journey! We learned about several different countries and why the immigrants had to leave their country. At the end of the unit, the kiddos wrote a letter from the perspective that they were an immigrant leaving their family, and they had to discuss their journey, where they left, and what it was like arriving at Ellis Island! They LOVED this unit!
