Description

These units are perfect for students who are learning how to use informational text and studying The United States and the past and current presidents. Students will first learn how to use the text features in informational text including the table of contents and index. Then, students will be assigned a partner. For the U.S.A. unit, they will research the United States in general and then an assigned state. For the Presidents unit, they will research the history and duties of presidents and then an assigned president. Each unit has a research journal that will guide students with a key question for each day.
 
Once students have completed their research, they will use it to complete two culminating activities for each unit:

U.S.A. Unit Culminating Activities

Students will write a report/presentation and create a salt dough map of their state. Finally, other classes and parents will be invited to the “State Fair” where your students can show off their cool salt dough maps!
 

Presidents Unit Culminating Activities

Students will write a report/presentation (their “presidential speech”) and create a mask of their president. Finally, other classes and parents will be invited to the “President Fair” where your students will share what they’ve learned about their president and show off their masks!
