My unit lesson for social studies that I taught was focused on regions in the United States, specifically the Northeast region. Our classroom was transformed into an airplane by moving desks, using PowerPoint, following our travel itinerary, and by using our imaginations as students toured the Northeast. Students also collected facts and information that they wrote down about the different places we visited on our tour, wrote letters to a friend about the Northeast, and they created advertisements persuading one to visit the Northeast region. Below are some examples from the students work created about the Northeast region of the United States.
Below are some pictures from our class trip to Lansing to visit the Capitol and the Michigan Historical Museum.
